with Leonard Lee
In this video, now on DVD as well as VHS, with two new chapters on carving and turning tools, Leonard Lee demonstrates the principles he developed in his book The Complete Guide to Sharpening.
He focuses on basic sharpening principles – the proper edge shape for the tool's purpose, and the range of abrasives used to reach the necessary keenness. His examples include knives, chisels, cabinet scrapers, turning tools and carving tools, including the dreaded "V" tool.
The DVD version can be viewed on television or computer (with DVD-ROM drive). While there is benefit to watching the instruction in sequence, the DVD has the advantage of a menu, allowing you to go directly to a particular topic. The appendix includes photos and descriptions of all the sharpening tools used in the different sections.
With this instruction, you should be able to achieve the perfect edge with minimal time and cost, from a razor edge on a chisel to a bit of "tooth" on a tomato-slicing knife.
Length: 110 minutes.
The Sharpening Woodworking Tools - VHS is no longer available.
