I need serious help here.
I have the aforementioned sharpner and can sharpen my plane irons till I can shave the hair off my arm. I sharpen at 25 degrees then change to 30 for the micro-bevel per the instructions.
Yesterday, I was sharpening my 1 1/4” chisel, and could not get it sharp enough to shave an arm hair no matter what! I set the angle at 25 degrees, and then went for a micro-bevel at 30 degrees. What am I doing wrong?
Seems if I can do one I should be able to do the other. I started at 120 grit and went all the way to 6,000.
BTW, these are Craftsman bench chisels. (Did I just answer my own question?)
Also, what angle do you sharpen a spokeshave blade, its not stamped on the blade or tool?
