Sharpening is the biggest nemesis to woodworkers, especially those wanting to employ hand tools. For any tool to be effective it has to be sharp and few come from the factory that way. Interestingly enough, most sharpening problems can be traced to doing the right things in slightly the wrong way. In this new DVD course Ernie Conover shares his wealth of knowledge on the subject, teaching you how to properly sharpen virtually every tool in the shop. The actual physics of cutting is explained in detail so that you will understand the whys of sharpening and be able to apply your efforts in the correct way. Because Ernie is not tied to any particular sharpening system, use of all types of sharpening stones is explained and compared. This will allow you to pick a system that fits your budget and needs. There is a convenient menu allowing the viewer to go directly to pertinent sections so that information retrieval is almost instant. Menu items are as follows:

  • What’s Sharp
  • Metallurgy
  • Stones
  • Planes
  • Scrapers
  • Chisels
  • Grinders
  • Center Punch
  • Screw Driver
  • Scriber
  • Scissors
  • Hammer
  • Files
  • Saws
  • Drills

In addition to sharpening of the traditional tools such as planes, chisels and knives, the session will also cover scrapers, drills of all types and even hammers. There is a detailed section on how to properly set, joint and file saws of all types. The important thing is that you will learn the theory of cutting so that you will intuitively know how to sharpen any tool. View Tool List for this class.
