Spyderco Bench Stone

Spyderco Bench Stone

I can’t say enough good about these stones. I have a medium and a fine. The fine I have had for over a year and I use it on a regular basis and it still shows no ware. With the fine I can take my tools edge to a mirror finish. The thing I like about using ceramics is that it is clean. You do not have to use water or oil on these stones. For clean up I use a rubber pencil eraser just like we used in school. And if it gets to bad I use a little water, Comet and a green scouring pad. I hav...

Veritas® Jointer/Edger for card scraper

Veritas® Jointer/Edger for card scraper

03-01-2013 12:46 AM by PatrickB | 3 comments »

This is the file holder from Veritas for card scrapers. Works great for putting a new edge on card scrapers after the burr is worn out. Takes only a couple of seconds to file the edge and get it ready to burnish or you can leave it as is after filing for heavy (as heavy as you can get with a card scraper anyway) material removal. I would recommend this for anyone wanting a good jig for their card scrapers.

A decent sharpener, but be careful!

A decent sharpener, but be careful!

My Work Sharp has a knife sharpening attachment, but the missus doesn’t always want to go out the the shop to sharpen her kitchen knives. So I thought I’d try out the Work Sharp Knife and Tool Sharpener. Besides, i’m a sucker for anything that comes in one of those fancy canvass tool bags! It’s a self contained, hand held machine that comes out of the drawer and plugs into the wall in seconds faster than you can say “get out the knife sharpener and plug it int...

Excellent Edge Inspection Tool

Excellent Edge Inspection Tool

01-16-2014 09:00 PM by OSU55 | 0 comments »

We deal with a lot of edges – planer & jointer blades, hand plane blades, chisels, saws, etc. Even with 20/20 vision, the naked eye can’t really see well enough to know how nicked up an edge is or whether you really did hone all of the scratches out. I found this little LED lighted magnifying glass by Rosallini on Amazon for ~$8 (I just checked and it’s down to $3.73). I figured if it didn’t work I hadn’t lost much, but to my surprise it works very well. The ...

Trend Diamond Whetstone Kit, Up For Review

Trend Diamond Whetstone Kit, Up For Review

11-04-2014 06:58 PM by woodshopmike | 17 comments »

The things that make this kit great are that it’s quick and easy to use. Woodworkers are famous for “being one tool away from greatness”. Well, I’m here to say that as far as sharpening my hand tools goes, I’m set and this is the only sharpening kit I’ll be using. I’d highly recommend this product to professional and hobbyist woodworkers alike. For my complete tool review check out the post, Trend Diamond Whetstone Kit, Up For Review. Thanks ...

Fallkniven Dc521 Diamond Bench Sharpening Stone

Fallkniven Dc521 Diamond Bench Sharpening Stone

02-03-2015 05:48 PM by L-H Johnsen | 4 comments »

I have used water-stones when sharpening chisels and plane-irons for a while. They work but I don´t enjoy the sharpening-process, which leads to less sharpening=bad results.So I looked at different diamond-stones and choose Fallkniven Dc521. I’ve had the smaller version (DC4) in my pocket for several years and it has been great, the final finish of the ceramic-side pops hairs without a trouble.I also tried the Dc521 when visiting a professional woodworking shop, and besides a Tormek-sys...

About all you need short of a diamond plate

About all you need short of a diamond plate

07-13-2015 09:54 PM by jonah | 4 comments »

I’ve been using these waterstones for about two years now, and after I put them away today I decided to write a quick review. I bought the two stones for about $20 (800 grit) and $25 (6000 grit), plus the supplies to make a leather strop. I have sharpened plane irons, chisels, and even the odd knife on the stones. The stones have yet to fail me. Waterstones are a bit messy, what with having to soak them prior to use and keep them wet while using them, but aside from that they are ...

CBN WHEEL

CBN WHEEL

04-25-2016 11:52 PM by Ken90712 | 11 comments »

I’m pretty new to turning, I’ve been learning and listening to all the advice from all the veterans on here. I have a wet grinder but that was not working for sharpening my chesils. All the help on here and Dave from D – Way Tools recommended the CBN. I bought the 180 grit 8 inch for my new Rikon 1 hp slow speed grinder. I bought the Wolverine jig as recommended as well. I have to say once set up this is amazing and everything everyone said it would be. My chesils are ra...

Great sharpener for small blades

Great sharpener for small blades

01-10-2017 01:08 AM by ColonelTravis | 5 comments »

If I were a famous person I’d endorse this product. If I were Charles Neil I’d get on YouTube and say: “Alright now, I wanna tell you all about something. This thing right here – zoom in some more so you can see it. Alright, this thing right here don’t look like much but it’s gonna knock your socks off.” (I love Charles Neil.) Lee Valley sells it. It’s an incredible tool for sharpening small blades. I’ve got a good setup for sharpening ...
