Sharpening a Dull Chisel – Ask Matt #8

A dull chisel is something that is hard to come by in my shop. So when I was asked to show how I would sharpen a dull chisel, I had to get creative with my dulling process.  This videos show how I would restore the edge to a heavy damaged chisel using a slow speed grinder and my water stones.

This is the eighth episode of my Ask Matt series where I answer broader topic questions.  If you have an idea for a topic for a future episode, please let me know.

  1. I am a woodworker, so I have to maintain my cutting and drilling tools carefully. Recently, I added up a bench grinder in my workshop, as described by https://topbenchgrinders.com so it has become easier for me to sharpen my tools on my own.
