Be careful when using this product

Be careful when using this product

Be careful when using this product because it’ll help you get your blades so sharp you could cut yourself by holding them by the handle… This tool is remarkably simple to use and accurate. I especially like the quick micro-bevel setup. If you are not sharpening blades on a regular bases so that you are comfortable holding them at the precise angel you want them while sharpening – this guide will double and triple the value of your blade! I am the weekend warrior, and a...

Great scraper burnisher

Great scraper burnisher

01-19-2012 12:43 AM by Tennwood | 12 comments »

I had a Woodcraft coupon about to expire and no other great needs at the time, so I bought the Veritas Variable Burnisher on a whim. (Actually what I went in for they didn’t have in stock that day). I normally sharpen my scrapers using a wet stone and round burnisher getting ok results. I can always get shavings, but not like they should be. Retail cost of the Veritas is $32.50, but with my coupon, I figured I couldn’t loose too much. It turned out to be a great deal. The i...

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

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

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...

An affordable wet sharperner

I received tonight my new wet sharpener. I have been working with it for about one hour and it is working extremely well for me. I sharpened chisels, and planes blades and kitchen knives.I read on another forum that all the Tormek accessories mount right on this sharpener.

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...

Very Sharp, yes. Scary sharp, no, but a nice tool none the less.

I’m as susceptible to good advertising as the next guy and while Pro-Tool Mfg. makes a nice product, they are masters of marketing. So moving past the hype, here’s my take on the WS2000. I’ve hand sharpened my chisels and the few planes I own since I started woodworking and the main reason I hadn’t done more work with my hand tools is because I’ve always hated using my limited time maintaining the edges necessary to do precise work. So when I saw an ad clip fo...

Great stones!

Great stones!

10-28-2011 01:57 PM by slickSqueegie | 4 comments »

These are excellent stones. I use them all the time. Initial sharpening and lapping on your chisels and plane irons is time consuming, but extremely rewarding. These stones are large and the case for the stones doubles as a holder that wont slide around. a lot of people out there use the “scary sharp” tequnique, and they swear by it. now I know why.They dont have any stones! these stones are just as fast as sandpaper but I think I get a better hone with these. anyone who use...

No nonsense sharpening machine

No nonsense sharpening machine

04-02-2014 04:48 AM by ThorinOakenshield | 15 comments »

So, this machine is a glorified belt sander. Said glorification is however, not unmerited. I’ve been turning for less than a year, I purchased all my turning tools used, none of them had a consistent profile on them… until I purchased the ProEdge. I found myself hunting for other tools to sharpen. Cost: This unit is expensive and if I hadn’t had a gift card to knock a nice chunk of the cost down, I probably wouldn’t have bought it. The cheapest I've seen it is here....

Tomz Double Shaft Knife Massager

I’ve been using this about 10 days now. I think that’s enough for an opinion. I should have bought this a long time ago. It just does what he says it does. The first 2 pics show what comes in the box. A 1200 grit diamond wheel, a 600 grit diamond wheel, leather strop wheel,Tormek paste, shop rags, a pad to keep it from scooting, instructions, and a sticker. I should give the sticker to my granddaughter, she loves stickers. Wait a minute, that might come back to haunt me. It&...

Knife Sharpening the easy way

Knife Sharpening the easy way

07-17-2014 05:53 AM by David White | 7 comments »

Not really a woodworking tool, but some of you may find this useful. I have recently started to try my hand at knife making (which is way fun – more on that later) but have always found it tricky to get a really good edge on a curved blade – I know the theory well enough, but somehow I can never quite translate theory into practice. Anyway, a few weeks ago I was perusing amazon.com and stumbled across this Professional Fixed-angle Knife Sharpener System The Amazon blurb was a ...
