Hello fine folks.
I want to show you a few of my methods of sharpening. I use and have tried most of the systems out there. In this video I use a granite reference stone and a Tormek.
I will show a set of Stanley Sweet Heart 750’s being flatened. I want to use these chisels as my “go to ” set. Because of that I have taken the time to totally flatten the bottom. They will preform better and look so much nicer.
I also like to use a hollow grind for ease of placing an edge back on the iron when I an using it. This is discussed in the video.
My intention was to show the use of diamond stones. I had bought another set and there were lost in shipping by UPS from Woodcraft. I want to give a shout out to Woodcraft for excellent customer service. I placed a phone call and they were replaced. No problems or questions asked. That says a lot for them. This will make me return to them for future purchases.
Now the little chisel plane will be used for glue removal and inner corners of projects that are hard to get to. I am impressed with the quality of the WoodRiver plane. Time will tell if the Stanley’s will hold up like there predecessors.
With that said no method is wrong and none is right. Pick the one that you can achieve and edge and meets your budget.
How do you get a razor edge?
