Mainly  that Stanley #4, with the taped handle.   

Grinder, IF a new bevel is needed

Sander, to flatten out the hollow ground bevel

600 medium India stone

1,000...1500...2000. ..2500 Wet-or-dry sandpaper sitting on the oil stone

Leather strop, charged with green stick compound.  

 

Chipbreaker is set 1mm back from the edge.   Back of the iron is flattened, as I work through the grits.    Chipbreaker is mated to the flattened back until no gap is seen.

Sole of the plane is rubbed with a candle, prior to use.

I only go to 2.5K because I then use a strop.    I do not do micro bevels,  ruler tricks,  or any other "Extra" stuff......I want the iron sharp, and back in the plane, ready to work, as soon as I can.     An "All day at the sharpening bench" sort of thing...just isn't  going to happen.

 

Micron shavings?    Not needed....unless one is merely showing off.    Takes way too long to finish a job....3 microns at a time.

2500 + strop is fine for my plane blades. Might go to 6000 on my chisels if paring end grain

My experience with secondary or micro bevels is that they require sharpening more often.

Steven, I don't know where you are located, but I saw this place here in Kansas while poking through Craigs List.  Thought you might be interested.

Wow, quite a collection. too far for me to drive also, besides the fact most of those would be WAY outside my tool budget.

Always fun to window shop though. Thanks Tom...

@John Moody would be drooling over these too.:P

I may have to make a drive up there sometime this summer.  I will need to be careful, though, and not take my credit card with me, and be sure to only take as much cash as I can afford to spend.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
