Sharpening lathe tools wood, food grade linseed oil - Review

At the Sharpening Shack we use slow wet-grinding Tormek machines and hi-quality wet stones to sharpen most wood turning tools.
We recommend sharpening your wood turning tools when you notice rough surfaces on your work and chips of wood instead of nice clean shavings. Pricing: Most wood turning tools can be sharpened for $6 unless you have large nicks and then we charge according to the cutting width of the tool.

For the beginning woodturner and unfortunately for many long time users of a wood turning lathe, sharpening is a necessary evil.
Once sharpened your tool can be honed 2 or 3 times before hitting it with a diamond stone or re-sharpening.
Sharp tools make for great shavings creating better surfaces on your work, less sanding, and more fun.

Turning wood with a dull tool is hard work and leaves a lot of work that requires lots and lots of sanding.
