  • A different company


    I purchased from this company a holder for my carving chisels very "to me" inexpensive. Am waiting for it. They also have some knives and other carving related items.
    I received a carving magazine from my son for my Bd in Nov. it was from England ..
    Carving Chisel & Gouge Sharpening Jig for Arc Shape Blades. W8065
    Very interesting. I am not associated with this company ..
    Just wondering.

    Chuck, this looks interesting. Let us know what you think of it when you try it out. I wonder if the shaft on palm gouges would be too short to use with this jig.

      To me it looks like the difference (in the U.S.) between hobby shops and woodworking specialty stores. They offer a few items to attract buyers from a given hobby. For example, in the woodworking category they show some Sheffield made chisels associated with J. B. Addis, but they are all smaller than 1/4" wide. There are two chip carving knives. It all seems designed for those who just want to "try out" a hobby. By the time you get the items to the U.S. it could be expensive and/or disappointing.

        Pallin, I haven't received it nor the "bill" yet,,,dun ta dun ta dunnn. But I was watching a demo with this holder and it to me seems workable. And I do small work and have not invested in any small units. We'll see and let you all know..

          Yes, NoDNA, it may be too early to make a judgement. And, price is not the most important factor. If you find this jig does the job for you, is not available anywhere else, it may be the "best thing since sliced bread."

                Arthur C. and Pallin Here are some photos and I paid 15.22 US shipped to me. I did not put in a palm chisel yet. It has a gauge to tell what angle for the chisel to grind, 15, 20, 25deg

                      Proops Brothers, it's one of those little gem type of companies that has everything you never knew you needed. I've spent many an hour walking around their stall at wood shows.

                        OK fellas, This idea is great, I am currently lQQking for a nice set of Stones to work on. And Arthur C, I did not see a demo so when I get a couple of stones I will Vid my "grinding away" . And loftyhermes, I have looked at theirs catalog , they must have just about everything../

                        I have been busy building yet another shed, this one for my bride, you all know a happy wife is a happy life. ON a happy note I have found a carving group semi close to me 45 miles, I think that is about 72 km to some. And all having these shots we can go "neked faced" ..Hah

                          Just wondering.
                          A while back I posted this, And now have a short report.. Of course I had to purchase a set of sharpening stones, I did not want "stone" of course because of wearing paths caused by the gouges. I went online and found a set from a company called sharpening supplies and purchased my First ever diamond bars set. My oh my .. Now back to the first few hours of learning. My diamond sharpeners are 220,360, 600, 1200 on 2 bricks.

                          At first the "Jig" is a very simple unit to use and that is my problem,, ha right up my line. Once you figure out that the angle is correct( note here" all of my old gouges were old and abused') so I had to work the into shape.

                          The people at Sharpeningsupplies were so very helpful they put me on the right track for the angle and how to.
                          My fixture sets the gouge to 3 different angles, 25, 20 and 15 degrees the fellow at the supply co said most gouges are ground to 25degs. with exceptions to different types. My long shaft ones are mostly 25degs. Now I have even tried for fit only the small palm gouges and they will fit although I haven't tried to sharpen one yet.

                          ALL in all this small unit for 15+ bucks ,,US$ is great for me and if you have a need. There ya are..
                          Good luck and I know a lot of you have fancy units, so be it.
                          Cheers

                              I would hesitate to sharpen any wood carving gouge to 25 degrees. That's a big angle to push wood open. Pfeil, Stubai, Narex, Ashley Iles and Henry Taylor use a factory bevel of 20 degrees.
                              20 is quite comfortable to push without a mallet. 25 will be noticeably tougher.

                              I suggest that you begin with 20. Then when you wish, tip them up a little for 25.
