Sharpening Your Tools with a Belt Sander?

Ok, but not like you think…

In this video I show you how to sharpen nay prepare a chisel using DMTs spectacular American made Dia-Sharp sharpening stones, including the very special 4000 grit extra-extra fine stone.  I also use Veritas sharpening jig to get my angles precise, repeatable, and super flat.  Sharp is just the meeting of two flat surfaces at infinity anyway.

From there I bring the chisel to the lovingly called, “Ze Frankenstraup” to do the honing and polishing and man these things are sharp enough to cut you just thinking about them.

Check out the video to see the whole process.  I will probably release a full article on this sometime soon.
