Product Description

From the Author

A handy book for the serious woodworker.
My book should prove very helpful to anyone who uses woodworking tools - every tool will get dull with use and, as a result will be less effective at accomplishing a given task. All common and some not so common hand and power tools are covered in detail. I have been a woodworker for over twenty years and the material found in How To Sharpen Every Blade In Your Workshop comes from this experience. Good Woodworking. Don Geary

Not very useful 18 Dec. 2009
By B. Ragusa - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book addresses tool sharpening in very general terms. If you know nothing about tool sharpening, then maybe this will serve as a weak introduction to the topic, but you will require far more detailed information if you plan to actually sharpen anything. Most topics are introduced with a phrase like "sharpening stones are available in many different types." How about some discussion of the various types, their characteristics and best uses? Nope, not included. Most of the photos in the book look like they came from manufacturers catalogs. They don't show anything in actual use. (Suggesting that the author does not actually sharpen things himself.) The book offers a few "projects" at the end. One is simply a block of wood with a decorated profile on the top edge, and holes drilled to hold router bits. The next project is the same thing with the profile on the bottom edge. Looks like a 12 year old designed them.
The book is a joke and not worth half the price. Try Leonard Lee's book instead.

Tool boxes grow. As a beginning do-it-yourselfer you might have a chisel and a saw. Years go by and work requires more types of tools. Suddenly, it seems, you have a whole shop full of tools with cutting edges. Now you need this book. Sharpening tool steel without ruining it requires some training. Getting a useful edge, quickly and safely, is a knack learned by doing. This book will help avoid common mistakes. Take care of your tools and they will take care of you.
