    Re: Micro sharpening

    I use those Dockyards constantly and keep them sharp by stropping them on the leather wheel of my Burke sharpener. If one needs more treatment I use the diamond stone and then the leather wheel. The 'rag' wheel of the Burke takes care of cleaning/polishing the inside of the tiny tools.
    Works for me.

      Only thing I can add is be very carefull how long you leave them in contanct with the wheel xxx those tiny bits of steel don't take much to overheat them and lose there temper.

        Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?

        I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

        Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

        What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

        Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

        I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...
