A chisel is more than a useful tool for prying open cans of paint. Properly sharpened chisels also make handy woodworking tools. Whether you’re a carpenter or DIY person, Taskers can sharpen your chisels to fulfil their intended purpose. The sharpening process varies depending on the Tasker and your type of tool, but here’s what the procedure may look like.
Your specialist uses a honing guide to set the correct angle of bevel for the chisel. This step ensures the chisel is sharpened to the optimum cutting angle. For example, brand-new chisels are not sharp and have a cutting angle of around 25º. Your specialist would use a honing guide to sharpen these new chisels to 30º. More experienced specialists can sharpen a chisel to the correct angle by eye, without using a honing guide.
Chisel sharpening with stone requires keeping the stone steady and using oil. Some Taskers may use a vice to hold a stone in place. Specialists apply oil on a sharpening stone to dispel frictional heat and ensure smooth sharpening action.
To start sharpening the chisel, your specialist uses the heavy grit side of the sharpening stone. Afterwards, the specialist turns over the stone to the fine grit once the chisel is filed down to the correct angle. With steady and consistent motion, the specialist can achieve a clean and sharp edge on the chisel blade.
Sharpening creates a raised edge or fine wire on the blade called a burr. Your specialist may use various methods to remove a burr. One way to get rid of the burr is passing the chisel blade against the stone. The specialist may also use a piece of scrap wood to de-burr a chisel.
