Tormek T7 Sharpening System

Tormek T7 Sharpening System

09-23-2008 05:25 PM by coloradoclimber | 17 comments »

Well, it was sharpening time again this weekend, chisels, plane irons, kitchen knives, pocket knives, scissors, turning gouges and chisels, anything else I could find that had an edge that needed sharpening. I’ve hand sharpened all of my knives and tools using wet, dry, oil, and diamond stones for the last 20 years. Bench stones works pretty well and I’m able to get shaving quality edges every time. So why change? Well, because hand sharpening takes a long time. I keep ad...

Norton Multi-Oilstone IM313 - I think this is my last sharpening system - updated with video

Norton Multi-Oilstone IM313 - I think this is my last sharpening system - updated with video

04-11-2009 05:47 PM by ChicoWoodnut | 21 comments »

I have been looking at this system for a couple of years now. I finally decided to click the buy button and I’m glad I did. Like most of you, I have tried a lot of sharpening systems. Here are the ones I have tried and the reasons I decided to buy this one and lay the rest aside. Scary Sharp - A good system if you like buying sandpaper all the time. I used it for a long time. The cost of consumables quickly adds up. Work Sharp - A good system but ditto on the consumables. ...

Chicago Electric Circular Saw Blade Sharpener

Chicago Electric Circular Saw Blade Sharpener

05-24-2012 01:21 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 28 comments »

Addendum after 72 days: My old dewalt blade seen on the bench in the video below is what I sharpened next. I sharpened up pretty nicely. In fact I’m leaving it in the saw for a bed build and I’ve been working with Walnut, maple, and jatoba for this. So far the blade that I sharpened has been working really well. So well in fact that I think I’ll spruce up this sharpener with new knobs, and a few washers to help align things. I’m upping my rating a star. I’d se...

Harbor Freight wetstone sharpener p/n: 95236

Harbor Freight wetstone sharpener p/n: 95236

03-03-2009 09:10 PM by dsb1829 | 12 comments »

I posted up a couple of reviews of this grinder on youtube shortly after purchase: I don’t find myself using this tool all that much, but when I need to use it the thing is very handy to have around. Depending on your definition of sharp this could be the only sharpener in your shop. I have taken chisels from the wheel to the strop and been back to work in a couple of minutes. Not as nice as a hand-honed edge, but if you are hacking mortises or rough work it is just fine. So ...

Chicago Electric Chainsaw Sharpener

Chicago Electric Chainsaw Sharpener

06-18-2012 06:29 PM by TZH | 13 comments »

Got one of these for my birthday this year, just tried it out. For the money, I’d have to say it is a great value. A little play in the handle, but not any more than I’d expect for the price. Harbor Freight has them right now for just under $40. If you’re into tight tolerances, this isn’t the tool for you. But if you’re like me and don’t need exact tolerances, this is a really good buy, in my opinion.

Veritas Mk.II Power Sharpening System Quick Review - VIDEO

Hi Folks, As promised, a quick tour of the Veritas Mk.II Sharpening System. In the video I seem to use back bevel and micro bevel interchangeably. This is a mistake and is due to doing these videos at 1am when I should be ”sawing logs,” in bed. However, here it is… Cheers!

Sharp cutting tools at last!

Sharp cutting tools at last!

11-23-2008 01:56 AM by Greg Wurst | 8 comments »

Like many, I’ve looked at wet grinders (in particular the Tormek’s) for some time hoping to make sharpening an easier and more productive endeavor. I’ve tried using diamond sharpening stones with limited success. My chisels were sharper, but still not as sharp as I thought they should be. I’d see people cutting these fine shavings and I was essentially working with blunt instruments. The biggest sticking point for me (any most other people) is the high price, esp...

Grizzly T10097 8-inch Grinder / Sharpener - Not worth the money

Grizzly T10097 8-inch Grinder / Sharpener - Not worth the money

05-21-2012 10:09 PM by DHS | 20 comments »

Executive summary: Cheap tool and not recommended. Details: Tired of grinding plane irons and chisels on my bench grinder while repeatedly quenching them in an old coffee cup nearby, but dismayed at the price of the Tormek system, I paid $90.00 for the Grizzly T10097 8-inch grinder with water bath, tool rest and leather stropping wheel. I got what I paid for. I’ll cut to the chase. The housing is plastic. A grinder with a plastic housing? The motor shaft runs through a bushing t...
