      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.

      Thoroughly recommended, excellent DVD

      The crucial thing about any training video is the imparted knowledge. Peter takes you through the process of sharpening chisels and planes, explains the different types of stones and films that you can use to do so. There's a nice section on testing how sharp your chisel is without having to shave your arm and how to check your plane by looking at the shavings generated. The video is split into seven sections, the first five are background and introductory information, such as how to go about flattening chisel backs. The last two cover the sharpening, chisel first then plane..

      I really liked the explanation of the chisel steels what sort of prices you'd pay for the different types and the pros and cons of each with a good explanation of the benefit of flat lands for nice, tidy dovetail work. There's a good emphasis on getting consistency with your sharpening regardless of the system you use and there's no pressure to upgrade to expensive equipment. Indeed in the summary Peter says "All of these systems work, the main thing is to get a system and work with it...".

      The production values are great both the video and audio are clear with copious use of close up shots where required. Presentation feels like a one to one lesson rather than being "talked at" and there's a nice bit of history thrown in at various stages.

      You can see quite clearly from the pictures attached that watching this DVD has improved my chisels from the abomination in the first to something so much better in the last two.

      Thorough and very well done

      Peter not only goes through several options but also gives you his insight on his years of experience. Looking for a better way to sharpen? You cannot find a better video.
