Precision Sharpening System for Lathe Tools With Free How-To DVD Three reasons you need a jig to properly sharpen your HSS lathe tools: MUCH FASTER – TOOLS LAST LONGER – MORE CONSISTENT 1) IT IS MUCH FASTER - you can sharpen any bowl gouge in less than one minute. Spindle gouges with a fingernail grind can be sharpened in less than one minute. 2) TOOLS LAST LONGER SO YOU SAVE MONEY - The minimum amount of material is removed each time you sharpen your lathe chisels using a precision sharpening system. You generally only need one or two passes to return your lathe tools back to extreme sharpness when using a jig. Freehand sharpening may require as many as six or eight passes and usually results in a less desirable multifaceted cutting edge. 3) A SHARPENING JIG IS MUCH MORE CONSISTENT - when sharpening freehand, it is very easy to change the cutting angles on the edge of your tools, especially over time. Think of the distortion you get when making a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy, etc.
Bowl gouges and spindle gouges are the most complex and difficult turning tools for anyone to resharpen. A properly designed sharpening system makes it easy. Great video instructions make it fast and easy to learn even for beginning woodturners.
The video covers all six categories of high speed steel lathe tools: spindle roughing gouges, skews, parting tools, scrapers, spindle gouges and bowl gouges. Everything you need to know about setting up your precision sharpening jig and exactly how to sharpen each tool is covered thoroughly in this excellent video presentation from Ron Brown.
