Video: Sharpening on the Go
Building Skills video: Watch this durable, portable, and affordable sharpening method that’s ideal for remodelers.
I’ve invested a lot of money in tools and I have a pretty awesome shop. Not only is woodworking my livelihood, it’s a passion. But I take no pleasure in sharpening and on a recent job, one with no water and no heat, my water stones became useless for sharpening my chisels. As the name implies, water stones require water and they don’t like freezing temperatures. I sought and found a more job-site-friendly system that works so well, it’s now how I sharpen all of my hand tools, even when I’m working in my warm and cozy new shop.
