Sharpening Pocket Reference Book: Techniques and Equipment

Sharpening Pocket Reference Book: Techniques and Equipment

by JimKingshott (Author)


The keenness of the edge of the blade and the keenness of the mind of the woodworker are equally important, and sharpening is the most important skill a woodworker must acquire. Fully illustrated instructions start with insights into what sharpness really is, with a crash course in metallurgy, then cover the complete sharpening process: grinding and honing; strops and stropping; sharpening by machine; sharpening planes, chisels, gouges, and specially shaped tools; sharpening and setting saws; sharpening hole-boring tools, machine tool cutters, and machine saw blades; sharpening scrapers, axes, adzes, froes, knives, drawknives, and spokeshaves. 160 pages, 137 b/w illus., 5 x 8 1/4.
