Wow, simply discovered this collection – superb explanations. The
one on grain was terrific. Seeing the examples of grain
route made rather more sense than the stuff I’ve learn.
By no means Thoughts… I watched this a couple of days in the past and have been
around the globe and again concerning sharpening analysis. I
rewatched simply now and see he is utilizing a diamond plate,
relatively than the norton flattening stone, so I suppose that
confirms my thought to go together with norton stones and a diamond
plate. sorry for the confusion. Nice video collection, by the
Hello, I am new to these things and the stones will likely be a significant
funding for me. I am torn between the nortons described
right here and the Shaptons really helpful by Bob Van Dyke within the
June 2016 concern. I haven’t got a difficulty with the Norton
sharpening stones as a lot as I do with the Norton
flattening stone you are utilizing right here, compared to the
DMT lapping plate Van Dyke makes use of. The Norton flattening
stone will itself finally require flattening by
one thing just like the DMT, which leads me to consider possibly
utilizing the Norton sharpening stones, together with a DMT
lapping plate is likely to be the best way to go. Maybe someday, when
the Nortons put on out, I’d improve to the shaptons. Any
Mike, simply curious why you do not use diamond plate stones?
Wouldn’t that just about mitigate the deformation of the
stones floor conserving it flat?
Finest video I’ve seen on sharpening. Thanks!
Thanks for one more nice video.
This Neanderthal woodworker would recognize your
guesstimate at how a lot strain your utilizing. Arduous to inform
in case your knuckles are altering coloration.
Nice video Mike however I’ve a query. All my planes are
bevel up. While you spoke about “flattening” the again of
easy planes with the ruler trick you indicated it will
not work for chisels as a result of they’re used bevel up and the
again must be useless degree as it’s a reference floor
the place that is not the case with bevel down planes. Would you
use the ruler trick for bevel up planes?
Thanks Mike. I overlook the little issues generally, your
movies all the time deliver them again.
I not too long ago took a category with Mike on the Connecticut Valley
College of Woodworking, each Mike and the varsity had been price
each penny! Mike is a top-notch teacher and the CVSW is
an excellent institution that executes it is instruction
with a high degree of high quality tools and a studying fashion
for woodworkers at each degree. Mike actually brings your
high quality of labor to an entire new understanding. I’ll
return! I’m a greater woodworking after only one class
due to Mike and the CVSW.
Effectively executed, as regular.
Notice that Charlesworth initially described the “ruler
trick” with a grinding movement that handed off and again on
the sting of the stone. I believe the rationale for that was
the curved bevel. When you think about the curved bevel sitting
on flat stone angled up by the ruler then solely the middle
of the curve is being sharpened. Nonetheless in transferring off and
on the stone then the perimeters make contact and are sharpened
as nicely. So, a couple of extra angels to suit on this pin. 😉
Good. For a lot too lengthy I’ve tried to shine approach an excessive amount of of
the blade as an alternative of the forefront losing a lot an excessive amount of
Good job, Mike. If an image is price a thousand phrases,
then a video is sort of like being there. love the entire
collection on planes.
