    Think there's cross purposes involved here David, and it'd be a pity to end up arguing. I can assure you that a WorkSharp can do an excellent job of flattening chisel backs when correctly used....

    One problem is that we really only find out the capability of the various methods when we try them - despite many being pushed as universal sharpening solutions.

    The focus here is to sort out a...

    Guess i can accept that minor heat effects are (probably - i'd love to see objective/microscopic proof of this) relatively easily honed off, but i'm not as relaxed as some seem to be about the risk...

    Pardon my cutting across your question Paul. Thanks Derek, I've seen your stuff on setting up a belt sander for tool grinding - and confirmed it with a test… It was in large part what informed the...

    That's the way my train of thought is headed too - but so far I'd rather stick with the flat bevels. Already have a variable speed Bosch belt sander which doesn't get a lot of use on other stuff.

    Sounds like the potential micro burning issue is a dead duck anyway - if only because it's easy to hone away as you guys say.

    I can agree about the fast burning scenarios - but despite this as...

    Thanks Ron, David. My view is strictly amateur too Bruce. I'm very much at the getting to know you stage with both the waterstones and white steel chisels, and have just come off a major back...

    That's a fair question too Bridger. Maybe the reality is just that chisels in general walk a fine line between edge failure and optimum performance.

    It's early days for me on the white steel...

    Brian's thread on choice of chisels just set me thinking. I'd always thought it was just that I was using cheap chisels, but it starts to look like even good quality chisels sail pretty close to the...

    They seem to be the sort of tool that when you need it you need it.

    The add on variety seem a bit compromised though compared to using a normal power driver. I have this Famag which is well made -...

    The A3 31 may be a bit stiffer than the 410 David - but either way it may not matter so much. Depends on what you need of it.

    Bear in mind too that I was measuring the height variation between...

    Nice job Rod. I haven't had a welder for a few years, and miss it big time.

    I'd be wary of that joint from a structural pov Julie. The very large section and short length of the leg (increased stability/less leverage) reduces the severity of the potential problem, but the...
