  • Making a Powered Tool Sharpener

    Quite some time ago, in another thread about sharpening, I posted a pic of a sharpener I made. I received several questions regarding the construction, parts list, etc. Since then, I had always planned to post a document with all the pertinent info, but somehow life got in the way and it never happened.

    I recently decided it was time to document the process and post it here for anyone who might be interested. You'll find a .pdf here: https://shellknobwoodcarvers.weebly.com/projects.html

    I would be most interested in any feedback regarding any errors or omissions I've made.

      Nicely designed sharpening system, Dave. Shame I don't have a lot of room here.

              Thanks for sharing that! I need to build a power sharpener, and that will be very useful.
              I've been planning on coming down to Shell Knob some Tuesday and carve with you guys. When spring weather gets here, I'm going to do it.

                  Thanks Dave. I started building one several years ago and never finished. I'm retired now and you have inspired me to blow the dust off and finish it. We have a small group that meets and carves once a week at the church. My plan is to take it to the meetings so anyone can use it to touch up a knife. Keep up the good work.

                    It resembles a smaller version of the Burke Sharpening system. I own the larger Burke system and absolutely wouldn't be without it. I much prefer spending my time carving rather than sharpening! That system will do the trick.
