Sharp tools are essential for wood turning, but grinding gouges is tricky. It’s hard to keep a fingernail profile if you’re not good at grinding. The fingernail edge must be convex all the way and it frequently gets messed up.
In this short video, Raffan shows how to rescue a gouge that had an accident on the grinder. He demonstrates how to reshape the tool and give it a new bevel. He starts by dressing the wheel.
It’s an exclusive companion video to Raffan’s brand-new DVD on bowl turning.
