Cuttermasters C.B.N. wheels are cool, fast, smooth and superb!

Cuttermasters C.B.N. Grinding wheels have made drill sharpening easier, cleaner and faster. I had read about these wheels on another sight, and when I had finished rebuilding my 1980s era Darex drill bit sharpening grinder, I decided to splurge on what I had heard was “the best” I am so pleased, I can see myself buying more of these wheels for my regular bench grinder soon. Some advantages of C.B.N. (Cubic Boron Nitride) wheels. -Cool Running: I’m not sure how mu...

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...

DuoSharp 10" Not Flat

DuoSharp 10" Not Flat

02-15-2016 05:41 PM by Ocelot | 37 comments »

A few months ago I bought (for not very good reasons) the DMT DuoSharp Coarse/Extra-Coarse 10” “stone”. Upon receiving it, I put new bevels on a few plane blades – for which it did a quick and fine job, and quickly flattened the sole and sides of a No 4 sized bench plane – one I didn’t particularly care about. The plane seemed flat enough, and cuts excellently, but I didn’t pay much attention while doing this first one. Recently, I’ve bou...

The Guide To End All

The Guide To End All

12-29-2015 04:41 AM by BigRedKnothead | 31 comments »

Ever used one of those eclipse style sharpening guides? Usually they’re cheesy imports that require serious fine-tuning and modification to be effective. What if a fine tool company like Starrett or the like were to make a honing guide? Well, that’s basically what you have here. I’ve used a couple different honing guides in my day. The eclipse was a waste. Good luck setting various blades and chisels straight in that one. The Veritas MKII is a very nice guide, but eventually I set...

I’ll make this succinct. The Good: [1] Once you set it up a few times, it gets pretty quick and repeatable. I do think the overall “system” is a great concept.[2] I did not have any issues with my irons or chisels sliding around in the guide. It seems reliable in this respect.[3] Veritas customer support has been one of the best customer support experiences I have EVER had – this is really the only reason I have not given this guide 0 stars. The Bad (i.e.,...

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 ...

View on YouTube A quick review of the Veritas Mark II Narrow-Blade Honing Guide. For years I’ve used the regular Mark II Honing Guide and recently purchased the Narrow Blade Guide. I found the new clamping guide is perfect for using with chisels.

Trend Grinding Stone, Up For Review

Trend Grinding Stone, Up For Review

03-03-2015 04:55 PM by woodshopmike | 1 comment »

The grinding stone by Trend is a 180 grit diamond whetstone that is great for reprofiling a chisel, flattening the back of blades, and truing plane soles or other traditional whetstones. It certainly speeds up the progress of these typically rather time consuming activities. This is not however a one stop product, it is rather an addition to something like the Trend Diamond Whetstone Kit. I’d recommend this product to anyone that reprofiles (read drops) there chisels frequently :...

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...
