Sharpening and profiling woodturning tools on your own can be inexact and a hassle. Let me sharpen your tools to the correct bevel angle and profile required for your skill level.
A well-sharpened tool requires far less pressure to do the job it was designed to do. Keeping your gouges sharpened not only allows you to work more efficiently, it ensures your tools will last longer.
Freehand sharpening just will not give you the consistent edge that you can achieve with a jig and slow speed grinder. I use an 8” slow speed grinder with both an aluminum oxide 120 grit wheel and a CBN 180 grit wheel. I also uses precision angle sharpening guides to ensure that you get the proper angle every time
