Chisel sharpening

I’ve just been sharpening a chisel and these are my personal notes. Sharing them in case they might be useful to someone else.

25 degree primary angle

30 degree secondary angle

You can start off on sandpaper

You can do it all on sandpaper on float glass and different grits

Once nearly there on tough sandpaper you then want to do 300 1000 straight to strop

You’re looking for the burr on the back (which you remove with the strop)

Leather strop and green burnish compound

Make your own strop by gluing leather to mdf

25 times on strop on back

10 times on front
