So just now, I ordered a piece of plate glass from a local company http://www.glassworks.net/
I know sharpening is a hot topic, and a lot of people will disagree, but I’ve decided to give the scary sharp method a try. For one thing, the initial cost is pretty low, and it’s sustainable in that cost for me…I’d love to just get a water cooled Tormek like Tommy McDonald uses, but T-Chisel can afford that, I can’t. Anyway, the glass is 24”x12”x1/2”, and they’re cutting it for me as we speak, should have it in a week or so, and it only cost $29…hopefully should last me a lifetime provided it won’t break into “little pieces”, but instead will be another little piece of my plans. Sharpening sharpens the man as well as the tool, and sharp tools….well you’ve heard that all before, I’m sure.
I’ll post pics of my efforts when it arrives, along with pics of the area that isn’t my shop, along with what I want my shop to end up being someday.
