AskWoodMan.com This is the sixthvideo in my complete sharpening series. In this series I will use the following tools and machines: Makita 9820 electric water stone with an after market sharpening jig, Bosch belt sander, Porter Cable belt sander, Mitutoyo combination square, General Sharpening Jig, DMT Diamond Stones, and various chisels, plane irons and scrapers. In this sixth video I take an old chisel and bring it back to life using a 4″ X 24″ belt sander and 120 grit paper. It’s a good idea to grind as much as possible before taking your chisels to the diamond stones. This is a great alternative for those that do not own a Makita 9820-2 Horizontal Wet Wheel. You’ll be amazed how quickly you can get your chisels back to a 25 degree bevel using this technique. The key is to have a light touch and also to keep the chisel steel from overheating. When steel overheats it can weaken and damage your tool. This will affect the hardness properties of your knife, which means it won’t cut as well. This video is just one in the series where Allan Little shows all his sharpening techniques that he has refined in the last 25 plus years to attain the sharpest chisels, plane irons and scrapers. This series will show not only how to hone and sharpen using the diamond stones, but also how to grind on the Makita 9820 course wheel as well as belt sanders. This series ends with chisels, plane irons and scraper demonstrations. ______________________________________ Want to know which tools
