Three Sharpening Post Links

John’s belt grinder mod

Three recent blog posts have come to my attention and I thought I’d pass along the links.  They make more sense, IMHO, viewed in this order:

#1> John Eugster of Sin City Woodworkers wrote a piece for his Woodworks by John blog about building a fixture-box to convert an inexpensive 1 x 30″ belt grinder to a precise blade grinder.

#2>  Bookbinder Jeff Peachey posted a 40-second video depicting his knife stropping technique.

#3> Tom Iovino of Tom’s Workbench fame (1000 posts and counting!) published an informative piece in which he examines various ways to determine how sharp an edge is, complete with photos (one of which is kinda scary hairy.)
