Tool expert Leonard Lee has consolidated a lifetime of study of sharpening methods, techniques, and devices into the most practical reference on the subject. You'll discover the most effective ways to sharpen your tools -- from chisels to drill bits. In fact, Lee's simple principles and some basic equipment wil allow you to sharpen any woodworking tool you are likely to encounter. Sharp tools are guaranteed to enhance the woodworking experience, and this book, by tool expert Leonard Lee, is the definitive reference on sharpening for woodworkers. Taunton's Complete Illustrated Guide to Sharpening is written by toolmaker, Tom Lie-Nielsen, and he brings his tool expertise to the sharpening arena with step-by-step instructions for sharpening woodworking tools. Fred_C_Dobbs writes: Time used to be the hardest thing to find while pursuing my passion for woodworking. Diotte writes: Since attending 2 FWW live events I have learned that fine well maintained hand tools are integral in "dialing in" tight joints and creating smooth almost finish ready surfaces. I have used the recommendations from the contributing editors of FWW and the folks at Lie-Nielsen to make my tool purchases to date.
As the household budget permits and my skills grow my collection of hand tools will expand. Craigis1 writes: I like to think I do a pretty good job of getting and keeping my tools sharp. RiversG writes: I have some of the tools for sharpening maybe this book would help me learn how to use them better. Oldfolks68 writes: I've always had trouble sharpening tools , knives or even my skills sometimes. JLBA writes: I have sharpening books by Ian Bradley, Jim Kingshott, and Leonard Lee (and am still not a proficient sharpener). The book goes into great detail on sharpening nearly every kind of woodworking tool available from power-saw blades and drill bits to carving tools and planes. The book covers the tools and materials you might need for the job and then focuses on ways to sharpen all sorts of different tools. Then I watch videos on sharpening on Fine Woodworking (and elsewhere) and doing an only okay job of it.
Lee starts out by explaining the meaning of sharpness, the physics of cutting wood, metallurgy, abrasives, and equipment before getting into the details of sharpening each specific tool.
He upgraded a number of his tools, and gave me his "old" tools: a 14" band saw, 8" jointer, woodpecker router lift (and 2 PC 7518 routers), and some other bits and pieces. Lee’s straight-forward approach, photos, and detailed illustrations provide practical advice for any woodworker looking to sharpen tools. I'd bet my scrapers that this book can help me with this and other more challenging sharpening tasks.
