I have been trying to use more hand tools in my woodworking which brings up the issue of sharpening. Well I do not have lots of money to throw at a Tormek system but I may be able to pick up a Worksharp. Especially if I could find one used. I have been sharpening with sandpaper glued to some 1 1/4″ thick plexi glass that is nice and flat. It does take a long time when you get a blade that was not sharpened properly before you got it. I picked up a old plane on Ebay and the iron was not very well taken care of so it took awhile to get it into shape. I also have some turning tools which are next to impossible for me to sharpen that way. I am sure it can be done but for me I can’t do it properly yet. So if anybody has any opinion on this let me know! I will let you know if I get one.
