Workshop Practice Series: No. 38 Tool and Cutter Sharpening
Workshop Practice Series: This is a good series of books covering most aspects of engineering practice, written by well known names in the model engineering world. Sharpening workshop tools is probably the most diverse of all workshop activities and the one that is least understood by the majority of workshop owners. This is not unreasonable in view of the wide range of equipment suggested for the task, ranging from the complex, typically an industrial tool and cutter grinder, through to the humble off hand grinder. This book by Harold Hall, illustrates how most sharpening tasks can be carried out using an off hand grinder and a few simply made accessories, whilst doing this to a standard comparable to that achieved using much more sophisticated equipment.
