Toby Scott will share his knowledge about sharpening hand tools and twist drills.

The workshop will cover:

  • Safety including setting up a bench grinder and using it.
  • How sharp does a tool has to be and how to tell when it is sharp enough.
  • Selection of sharpening materials and backing surface.

There will be practical demonstrations of sharpening common tools e.g knife, scissors, chisel, screwdriver, plane blade and twist drill, with hands on practice by attendees.

You are encouraged to bring a blunt tool to sharpen.

This skilshare is NOT suitable for under 18's even if accompanied by a responsible adult.

This skillshare is aimed at people with no or limited tool sharpening experience. It will be held in the Hackspace workshop so all attendees must wear suitable clothing for a dusty workshop and act responsibly in an environment with workshop machinery and Hackspace members work in progress.
