I’m looking for some experienced grinders.
I got a bowl gouge today and tried to re-sharpen it. It wasn’t sharp enough in my view, but it did cut. WELL, it cut pretty WELL. Anyway, all’s WELL that ends WELL! Good grief!.
Anyway, this is what it looks like. It is real close to what it was originally.
I would like to do a side grind, like this…....sometimes called an Irish grind.
From what I have seem on videos it is necessary to use the pivot jig in such a way as to have the tool on a steep angle with the handle down. I made a jig with a 45 degree pivot. When I sharpened it the tool was level at the midway point.
Can I achieve that grind on this shape tool?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
And by the way, my confidence has been restored after trying both the bowl gouge abd a 1/2” roughing gouge.
You’re gonna know when the edge cuts clean and right.
