Went out to the shop, I had a new ($.97) belt for the sander to wear out. I set up the sander in my vise and ran the belt, getting it to stay on track. Once that was done, time to work on some chisels. I have an older Veritas honing guide, and set things up with that. Started up the sander by locking the the trigger “on”. Set up the first chisel with the honing guide, and started “grinding” the bevel’
Picture shows the set-up. Sander was off for the picture. I guide the honing guide with both hands, and keep two fingers on the blade of the chisel. Why? If the blade gets too hot for the fingertip, it’s too hot for the metal. After grinding a new edge, it’s off to the oil stones. Sander also is just long enough for myblock plane to sit on, so I polished the sole of it while I was at it.

Just some old chisels, but that’s all I need to get some work done.
