I’ve long been a fan of the Veritas Mark II Power Sharpening machine. I had one of the first models while working at Popular Woodworking Magazine. On the day I left the magazine, I ordered one for my home shop.
It can be tricky at times. After grinding hundreds and hundreds of tools, this short video explains how I get dead-straight bevels and never lose the temper on a tool.
These techniques are not be endorsed by Veritas. And if you are happy with your results, don’t change.
Many of you will criticize me moving the tool across the wheel while it is in motion. This is way faster than keeping the tool stationary and is safe as long as you move the tool away from the center of the wheel.
