Sharpen Your Claws On This Tiger

Sharpen Your Claws On This Tiger

1948 days ago by knotscott | 8 comments »

Once I acquired some functional chisels, and a fleet of hand planes, I needed an easy and effective method to keep a good edge on all of them. I initially bought a little jig that held the blades at a set angle and allowed me to work the blade back and forth across an abrasive surface…it worked ok but took a fair amount of time. I also bought a small Delta Utility Sharpener that didn’t work quite as well, but was a little faster. When the Scheppach Tiger 2000 went on sale for n...

DMT DuoSharp Fine/Extra Fine is just not worth it

DMT DuoSharp Fine/Extra Fine is just not worth it

742 days ago by CplSteel | 25 comments »

Edit: I am leaving the original post below, and I will repeat this portion of the post below, where it makes sense with the rest of the comments; but, these “stones” are actually pretty good, but the Grit they give you is a lie. I am sticking with the two stars because I wanted a 600 grit stone, not a 6000 grit stone. Ok, that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but after all the posts and differing opinions I decide to do some tests. The test parameters were basically to flatte...

Deulen Planer Sharpener

Deulen Planer Sharpener

Due to the length of planer knives you need to purchase two of the above knife holders to properly hold and sharpen planer knives. I have only used them once and they worked very well and quickly put a very sharp edge on my knives. I purchased the knife holders on EBay. The item number is 250557952917. Dan Deulen is the inventor/manufacturer of the holders and he can be contacted at telephone number 360-601-1744 or at 11311 NE Stutz Road, Vancouver, WA 98685. It is my opinion that he is...

This is actually a review of two products. I had bought a cheap little Pocket Microscope from Lee Valley that was about $10. Took a look at some of my blades and found problems that explained why they weren’t cutting as nicely. It was really fascinating. It has an LED light that is above the object which illuminated the blade clearly. It has a base that easily comes off which is how I use it. I highly recommend it to any one that sharpens his own tools. It is extremely cheap and ...

Diamond sharpening Kit

Diamond sharpening Kit

1243 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 $100 WS2000 or the $200 WS3000- What's the difference?

The $100 WS2000 or the $200 WS3000- What's the difference?

327 days ago by StumpyNubs | 17 comments »

I love me some sharp tools, and as an increasingly lazy woodworker, I looked high and low for the perfect way to get my dull tools back to work with minimal effort, time and of course, money. I think the Worksharp may just be the perfect fit! Not only is it fast and easy to use, but it offers a tremendous bang for your buck. The only problem is, which model to choose? The WS2000 is about $100, while the WS3000 is twice the price. Is it twice the machine? Can a budget conscious woodworker get ...

THE way to achieve a mirror-like polish everytime

THE way to achieve a mirror-like polish everytime

1068 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...

Dan's Whetstone Company Customer Service and Product

I have been looking for a sharpening product that I could use between my super fine diamond stone and a leather strop that is different than the Norton 8000 grit water stone I was currently using. I think the water stone is a great product, but I hate the maintenance and mess of a water stone. When I took a class at the Homestead Heritage School of Woodworking, we learned about sharpening and the system that was used was diamond stones (up through super fine) and then the Translucent Arka...
