Had a few chisels that were a bit beat up. Seems all that work on the last tool chest wore a few out. Set up the center for sharpening.

Belt sander clamped into the vise.

 

 

Honing Guide set to the correct angles ( 2 were needed)

 

Floor tile set out, full sheet of 150 grit clamped to it. 220 set aside, 1500/2000/2500 grits on standby

 

Ok, one firmer chisel had some rust spots that had to go. Wire brush in the drill press took that off.

 

Mortise Chisel needed a new edge ground first, had the rest set @ 30 degrees, and made a new edge. Set it up in the honing guide, gave it a spin on the belt-sander, cup of water handy. then off to the sandpapers.

 

The rest of the items were a couple chisels, and a Stanley Cordovan 9-1/2 block plane. All of these edges needed to be @ 25Degrees. Shined up the backs while I was at it. First off, the chisels

on the far left is a Greenlee 3/8" Gouge, out channel. Then the mortise chisel a firmer chisel and two paring chisels. Did I say the backs were done, too

Almost mirror bright. Now, about that Block plane. It had seen a lot of use, working on the chest. Backed the iron out a bit, and ran the sole around on the 150 grit. Still a small hollow behind the mouth opening, but not too bad. Next, the iron got a GOOD clean up with the wire cup on the DP. Had some "patina" growing. Now back to shiny metal. Then the whole routine with the sander, and sandpaper. Put the cleaned up plane back together, and tried it out

Took a couple tries to get the depth just right. Not see-through, but I didn't set it that close.

Did back it off just a hair more. Been working on a spot to store the wee planes

I'll just have to move a slider or two out of the way. Yep, tool chest now has a slider installed, with a second one coming later

Yep, these only go half way across the length, have other plans for the left side of this chest

This side of the divider will get a few things added to it. Just what? Stay tuned....

Another great archived topic brought up! I always love Steve Newman's dungeon adventures!

While Steve's dungeon adventures are very informative and interesting and his rust hunts are quite so also, his grill adventures are more exciting. 

Not that he should repeat them....just sayin.

BTW, are your hands healing well?

Ouch! Hope it heals faster. 

I have no problem sleeping. Sometimes it unnerves my passengers, though.

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.
