Chisel and plane blades:
I remember watching my woodwork teachers Mr Underwood & Mr Smith Horsenden Secondary Modern back in the 50's sharpen wood & plane chisels by hand to almost shop standard but never bothered asking how its done.....
Do you touch the blade on the oil stone on back stroke lifting on forward stroke or touch O stone both ways ?
Any one made a jig for a dry grinder for gringing the 30deg angle on chisels. Mind you pardon my ignorance what's the point of two angles?
Some say the mechanical multi sharpeners aren't as good as they sound.
One particular store has one Â£40 I'm tempted as I'm getting fed up with the daily grind....he! he!.
