    Peter's course covers every aspect of sharpening chisels and plane blades. At the end, I knew the way forward was Scary Shapening!

    Great Video

    Having taken one of Peters Workshops, it took me about a year to get started with woodwork at home, by which time i needed to jog my memory on sharpening. This video makes sharpening easy and straightforward. When searching various youtube videos there is a minefield of various methods for sharpening, some of which im not sure are a good way of sharpening at all and many of them simply confuse what should be a straightforward process. Peter shows a variety of common-sense methods and lots of useful tips which completely demystified sharpening. The biggest revelation is how quick sharpening is with a well maintained blade.

    Peter surpassing himself with the amount of information

    This dvd, which continues from the previous grinding dvd has Peter surpassing himself with the amount of information - I had to take notes often ! Peter describes the many systems available and the many grades of steel (old and new) used for chisels and plane blades but also the detailed description of his current favourite scary sharpening comparing the micron grades against the standard P grades. A feat of memory as well as a mountain of information for all wood workers.

    A Huge Help!

    Sharpening is a skill at the top of my list to improve. After purchasing some quality chisels I realised the joys of working with sharp tools. Peter demonstrates a variety of options for sharpening and goes over different techniques and tools used. I now have the knowledge to take into my workshop and give my old tools a new lease of life. Ive also realised Ive been doing far more work than whats needed to maintain my new quality tools. This video is a must watch

    Chisel and Plane Sharpening Download

    Really useful and a huge amount of information. Having been on one of Peter's courses I found this was really good as a reminder on the different techniques and options to use. I liked the history of all the various methods used as well. Download is very good and means its able to viewed on PC, iPad etc with no issues. Could do with some chapters or menus to make skipping through to relevant sections a bit easier, but a very minor niggle.
