  • Sharpening

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



    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.

          Another good article is in the Carving Magazine Issue #3 on Sharpening Chip Carving knives by Dennis Moor. Pages 66 through 68. But it also encompasses other knives. Well mentions them.Other good tips, Questions and answers in the magazine also.

            How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

            The view on the house is nice but that 11 foot 3 ceiling height is killing me....

            I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
            Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

            If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

            Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
