Just sharpened my first chisel! I won’t go as far as to say it was fun, but satisfying to be sure.
I’m using 3M microabrasive paper on glass with a little mineral oil for lubricant.
How many times can you use the same area on the paper? I sharpened an old clunker to get used to the technique, and am going to get my new Narex set nice and sharp next. There are certainly lots of shavings/particles on the sheets now (more on the larger grid than the smaller). Should I try to use a new section of the paper for each one?
Any input on how long one can expect to use the same sheet would be really appreciated.
