Veritas camber roller attachement makes putting a camber on a blade a breeze.

1706 days ago by mart | 10 comments »

After years of using an ROS to sand and smooth all my projects I finally said enough and started collecting good user planes over the last couple of years. I had played some with a #5 jack plane but had left my #4 smoother unattended other than to derust it. I pulled it out today, took the blade out and got out my Veritas honing guide. I had purchased a camber roller attachment for it last year and hadn’t tried it out yet. I don’t know what took me so long. It made putting a cambe...

Norton Waterstone set IM83  in box

Norton Waterstone set IM83 in box

1487 days ago by Ollie | 7 comments »

This is just a quick review of the Norton waterstone set in a carrying case.I only purchased this set after a lot of deliberation and bargain hunting. I paid £230 for the set, after first checking the price of all the stones individually, including the flattening stone.It worked out that I was only paying £20 for the box and free DVD that comes with it. I think that having the box is worth it just to keep the stones out of harms way and ready to go. Upon receipt of the kit I first watched ...

Essential Tool for Perfect Results

Essential Tool for Perfect Results

1256 days ago by thiel | 6 comments »

I use a Grizzly 10 inch (T10010 I think..) wet grinder to sharpen my tools. It’s a barebones machine which approximates similar tools from tormek and jet, and I’ve found its performance just fine. As I get better and better at using my edge tools, I’ve needed to get better at sharpening them, so I’ve invested some time in getting my rig up to final form. Here are some things I’ve learned: —It’s worth it to invest in a jig to hold your chisel/ir...

PSI Sharpening System

PSI Sharpening System

1249 days ago by Moby | 2 comments »

I just recently received this sharpening system to put an edge on my dull turning tools. It does a good job but it could be better. Since the system is 8” in diameter sometimes the lathe bed can get in the way of sharpening the tools, a 9” or 10” version could give it some more room. Other than that it is a great system and you can’t beat it for around $40.

Diamond sharpening Kit

Diamond sharpening Kit

1246 days ago by dbray45 | 6 comments »

This kit came with 4 “stones” – actually 4 steel plates. The extra course is a little smoother than road surface. When I used this to flatten my 8000 grit water stone, I found that my flattening stone has been worn to a point that is no longer flat. When you get these, sharpen a piece of steel or something hard where you are not looking for that pristine mirror finish. I made a blade for a radius plane – thank Mads for this, the blade is now done – and went...

THE way to achieve a mirror-like polish everytime

THE way to achieve a mirror-like polish everytime

1070 days ago by jayman7 | 9 comments »

I owned a series of King waterstones previously, and while they worked well, they still didn’t perform as I would’ve liked. And that’s in addition to making sure they get a good soaking well before your sharpening session, which makes a huge wet mess. I’ve seen the Wood Whisperer use these Shapton stones many times before, but I have always hesitated due to the high price tag. It was one of those times where I said “Oh what the heck,” and I bought a se...

Leaves a rough finish

Leaves a rough finish

http://www.harborfreight.com/120-volt-circular-saw-blade-sharpener-96687.html Haven’t seen anybody review this, so I thought I’d give it a go. I posted it on my blog a while back, but nobody reads that. ;-) I’d been looking at this sharpener for years at HF. Sending my carbide blades out can get expensive so I needed a way to do the work myself. You can only block the teeth with a diamond card so many times… I picked it up on sale for $59. When I got it and...

Angle Checker

Angle Checker

1038 days ago by Don W | 10 comments »

I bought this angle checker being I was ordering a bunch of other stuff from Woodcraft. I’ve seen these almost everywhere so I figured it would be handy to have at my sharpening bench. Bottom line, it just doesn’t work. When you slide a plane blade in (even a thick iron) it goes into the hole cut at the end so the angle of the blade really doesn’t register. You can pull it back some and “eye ball” it, but if your going to eye ball it, you might as well just use a...
