  • Sharpening

    I found this website with some good information on sharpening of woodworking tools:

    http://www.antiquetools.com/sharp/index.html

    I have seen several links here that were for the Scary Sharp method and that is what this one is called. However, this one has a lot more details and photographs.

    Hope this is of some help to our beginning carvers.

      Super site, Cap'n. We really need a good way to classify this kind of useful information for future use. Each of us can bookmark sites and copy some other written information, but it's not available to new users. We need a 'Links' icon, maybe? A place to post some reference stuff, like the picturetrail log-in, etc.

            I have the Pegas replacement table for my EX21. It was the best investment that I made. The best part is they eliminated the useless vacuum holes and reduced the size of the blade hole as well. Another benefit was the table stiffened the EX21 frame eliminating much of resonant vibration. It is a much...

            The perfect solution when I need a wider top on my Hegner. A magnetic sheet! I decided not to get the Pegas as the only reason was for the wider top and the top feed blade. After 19 years, my Hegner is still running like new and I couldn’t justify the expense. It was a “want” and not a “need”....

            Good idea Scott. Also, my daughter has long, curly hair. She twists it up and around and sticks a pencil in to hold it. I also stick a dowel in my hair when working and my hair gets in my way and I twist it up. The one in this picture would perfect for thick hair.
