For sharpening your Carter and Son tools we suggest a slow running grinder and CBN wheel. We've found a 320 grit wheel is great for restoring a razor edge. Great CBN wheels can be found at Peachtree Woodworking Supply. Using the Wolverine Vari-Grind jig, allow your tool to protrude 2" and use the following angles:
3/4", 5/8", 1/2" & 3/8" bowl gouge
5/8" u-shaped bowl gouge
1/2" & 3/8" spindle gouge
Detail spindle gouge
1-1/4" & 7/8" roughing gouge
Michael Werner Double Ended
1", 3/4" & 1/2" skew
Please refer to this video .
1" square nose scraper & 1" bowl scraper
Negative rake scraper
25º on the top, 40º on the bottom
Double Barreled Resolver
When you are ready to grind a relief edge on your tool, simply allow the tool to protrude 2-1/2".
Give us a call, we are happy to serve you.
