  • 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.

            When a blade slips out, the tendency is to tighten it more. Make sure you haven't over-tightened the clamp forcing the sides apart. Most OEM clamps are made from soft aluminum so once it starts they will continue spreading and it will be near-impossible to keep the blades in place.

            Blade slippage is a function of the blade clamp holder and or the set screw and thumb screw with swivel.

            Tricia what saw do you have? Does the blade slip or it just won’t tighten?

            Have you tried to rough up the thumb screws tips? How old are the blade clamps? may be time to replaced them.
