Grind Perfect Edges Without Burning
In just seconds, get a tool ready for honing
Joel Moskowitz used to approach the grinding wheel with dread in his heart. Then he learned this “cool grinding” technique and the once-hated chore became fast and easy, and the results consistent. His secrets? Use a friable wheel that runs cool, and dress the edge of the wheel with a slight crown. Armed with these two important tips and using Moskowitz’s technique, anyone can learn to touch up a bevel, grind a new bevel, and even grind new edges on curved tools. Your chisels, plane irons, gouges, and all other edge tools will never be in sad shape again.
