Sharpening for Woodturners

You will learn how to precisely and carefully sharpen by hand and using the sharpening machine....
Turning puts a huge strain on the cutting edge, meaning the tool becomes blunt relatively quickly. Sharpening is therefore an important component of successful turning. The right cutting angle and the ideal grind contribute in no small way to a clean surface.
You will learn how to precisely and carefully sharpen by hand and using the sharpening machine. You will also be shown, amongst other things, how to reproduce the same grind each time and how to make a traditional or fingernail grind. Special grinding shapes such as the Celtic Grind are also explained. We will sharpen pipes, chisels, cutters, scrapers, iron rings and bore hooks. This course is aimed at beginners as well as experienced turners who would like to improve their knowledge of sharpening.
  • Please bring along suitable wood turning tools for sharpening.
