This innovative new tool sharpener is set to become a firm favourite with home woodworkers. Addressing many of the problems encountered with other grinders on the market, the Work Sharp tool sharpener is easy to use, requires the minimum amount of setting up, offers fully repeatable results and does not require the user to purchase, often costly, sharpening jigs. Powered by a 1/5 hp induction motor, this grinder is extremely quiet in operation and will even sharpen axes and lawn mower blades without stalling. A dry sharpening system, this machine has a special airflow which routes over the blade being sharpened to ensure it does not overheat. This has an obvious advantage over wetstone systems as the tool does not come into any contact with water. Two tool ports give access to the underside of the wheel where most smaller blades are sharpened. The first of these ports is specifically designed for chisel and plane blades up to 1 5/8″ in width. A fixed tool rest in this port is angled to enable a precise, fully repeatable bevel of 25º to be sharpened on to the blade. The tool rest itself is diamond coated to remove the burr and also doubles as a heat sink for fast dissipation of any heat build up within the tool. A second port is designed for the sharpening of carving and woodturning chisels. Used in conjunction with the slotted wheel and abrasives this port gives you a new perspective on sharpening.

On this short winter snowshoeing excursion my friend and I tested some Cold Steel chopping tools on some dead wood for the purpose of fire-making and fun. We did our best in this series of tests to be safe with the tools we used, and also very efficient in technique. In part one, I share with you some footage of the Cold Steel Special Forces shovel being pressed into the role of an axe. It’s not a difficult transition for this shovel which is sharpened on all sides, and is made from an unusually thick stock of steel. For the weight, and the price, this is an awesome tool, and you can consider yourself well prepared for an emergency if you have one handy. LIKE, FAVORITE, AND SHARE THIS VIDEO WITH YOUR FRIENDS.
