    Comments about Woodworker's Guide to Sharpening :

    This book is an up-to-date compendium of sharpening for the woodworker. It covers the different types of stones and other sharpeners, jigs, machines and methods for most all shop tools. It shows a wide range of currently available sharpening products. It contains interviews with many woodworkers on what they use for sharpening their tools. I found that my 60-year knowledge of sharpening that I thought was adequate for my needs was sorely in need of updating, due to the products on the market today. As a result of studying this book, I was able to supplement my sharpening setup knowledgeably. This book was well worth the price and time spent in reading it.
