Grinding a Parting Tool Requires a Delicate Balance

In Fine Woodworking #231, FWW author Peter Galbert offers tips on how to sharpen his four essential turning tools. Used to cut straight, accurate diameters, like the ends of tapers or the shoulders of tenons, the diamond parting tool is the only one that needn't be honed. In this short video, Galbert demonstrates his grinding technique. For even more information on how to sharpen your turning tools, be sure to check out his article, Get an Edge on Turning.
