Veritas® Jointer/Edger for card scraper

Veritas® Jointer/Edger for card scraper

03-01-2013 12:46 AM by PatrickB | 3 comments »

This is the file holder from Veritas for card scrapers. Works great for putting a new edge on card scrapers after the burr is worn out. Takes only a couple of seconds to file the edge and get it ready to burnish or you can leave it as is after filing for heavy (as heavy as you can get with a card scraper anyway) material removal. I would recommend this for anyone wanting a good jig for their card scrapers.

Just a quick note to say I am stoked with Worksharp customer service. Just received my WS3000 yesterday ($199 from busybee tools), filled out the online registration and when I got the option to get my free abrasives it said US shipping only and no PO Boxes (I am in rural BC Canada) Called Worksharp cutomer service and after about one minute on the phone they said my abrasives would ship on monday. Excellent customer service! Thanks Worksharp!

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&...

Big Bang For Buck Belt Sharpener

Big Bang For Buck Belt Sharpener

I had been toying with the idea of getting into Woodturning for some time and the opportunity presented itself, so I started some serious planning. One of the things that goes along with Woodturning is the ability to sharpen your own turning tools. At the time I did NOT own a mechanized sharpening machine/system and had to rely on manually sharpening all of my planes and chisels with the “Scary Sharp” sandpaper to stone methodology. Don’t get me wrong, that system works a...

Shapton GlassStones Are All You Need

Shapton GlassStones Are All You Need

I owned a series of Norton waterstones previously, and while they worked well, they didn’t perform as well as I would’ve liked. Plus you have to make sure they get a good soaking well before your sharpening session, which creates a wet mess. I took Bob Van Dyke’s sharpening class at the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking in November. I had looked at the Shapton stones many times before, but I have always hesitated due to the high price tag. After the class I bought a set of 1000 and...

Kreg True flex featherboard.

Kreg True flex featherboard.

12-25-2012 09:06 PM by AJswoodshop | 11 comments »

For Christmas I asked for a featherboard. Before I got the featherboard I was using two pushsticks. One to hold the workpiece against the fence, and the other to push it through the saw. It worked well but it was a little uncomfortable. The Kreg true flex featherboard fixed all of those problems. The fingers on the featherboard push the workpiece tight against the fence, and it can adjust to fit the width of you workpiece. It can fit almost every T-slot, and runner track. It’s great for...

Excellent grinder accessory

Excellent grinder accessory

I got a cheapo 6” bench grinder from Harbor Freight at the same time that I bought my lathe to sharpen my turning tools. It ran just fine with the 2 wheels it came with, but vibrated all over the table with the Norton aluminum oxide wheel that I ordered from Lee Valley. I spent a lot of time messing with the adapter bushings that it came with, trying to get the wheel to run true, but with no luck. Enter the Oneway Balancing System, also purchased from Lee Valley. At first I didn̵...

Piss poor results

Piss poor results

10-21-2012 06:09 AM by Richard | 34 comments »

Let me start out by saying I wanted to like the WS2000. I read the reviews here and elsewhere and was sold on the idea that it was going to make sharpening of plane irons and chisels easier. Previously I have practiced the “scary sharp” method of sharping on progressively finer grits of sandpaper utilizing an inexpensive honing guide. My biggest frustration with the honing guide was the poor ability to obtain consistent results. I will say this in the WS2000’s favor. I...

3M Microfinishing Film for tool sharpening

3M Microfinishing Film for tool sharpening

09-20-2012 06:33 AM by Purrmaster | 7 comments »

I bought this stuff from Tools for Working Wood a couple of months ago and have been using it since: http://www.toolsforworkingwood.com/store/dept/THS/item/ST-MAF.XX/3M_Micro_Abrasive_Film__for_Scary_Sharpening_-_PSA This finishing film from 3M is used in place of sandpaper for Scary Sharp. The grit of these are measured in microns. Tools for Working Wood has an article that gives a rough equivalency to the water stone grits. I.e. 1 micron is equivalent to a 1,000 grit stone. Please...
