I thought I should let people know that I am restoring some of the blades in the woodshop.
I have started with two blades. I took them home because the Tormek is not designed for removing large amounts of metal. It took me half an hour to regrind and sharpen the two blades using fast cutting ceramic grinding wheels. The geometry of the plane blade was messed up and it took 20 minutes to reshape etc.
I am going to gradually work through the worst blades so, if you see a missing blade or chisel, it’s because I am restoring it.
Please be aware that when sharpening, the intention is to raise a burr in the minimum number of strokes whilst actually paying attention to what you are doing regarding the correct bevel angle and the even distribution of the secondary bevel. If you don’t sharpen often, you should expect to have to be twice as vigilant.
I am running sharpening tuition. I start next
Let me know here if you are interested.
