Platform sharpening

I finally updated my old platform sharpening video from some years back. I did this one once and didn't like it, so did it over. This one flows better.

Thanks for the instructional video .. I love my Robo rest, it's consistent with the angle I've set for my scrapers. One pass on the Grinder and I'm back to making shavings.  👍

I do like the    35    35   Grind      to get of of tool marks.      The  75    25    Grind     is great to get rid   of      Excess  wood.  in a hurry       will leave   tear out       who cares      were only concerned  with  getting    that  excess wood out. After the  scraper    use a  bowl gouge   to get rid of tear out then  a 35    35   negative scraper to rid  of tool  marks.   Then sanding   hate this part.........

Thanks Reed for the updated sharpening video.  I've been using the Robo Rest now for a couple years and there is no way I could sharpening different tools, each at its particular angle, so quickly with jigs.  I touch up the edge much more often because the Robo Rest makes it so fast.

One thing I do differently, Im always worrying about hitting the other wheel if sweeping bowl gouges, so I rotate and push up the wheel rather than rotate and sweep.

The RoboRest is a type of jig.
