Sharpening for Woodturners

During the course, you will learn how to sharpen tools by hand and using sharpening machines like...
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.
During the course, you will learn how to sharpen tools by hand and using sharpening machines like the Tormek, the Sorby ProEdge or the circular saw grinding machine with precision and in a way that protects the tool. This includes learning how to create a reproducible polished section and a traditional or fingernail grind. Special grinds such as the Ellsworth Special Grind will also be covered. Participants will be shown how to sharpen gouges, chisels, parting tools, scrapers, ring tools and hook tools. The course is designed for both novices and experienced wood turners wishing to expand their skills.
  • Please bring along suitable wood turning tools for sharpening!
