Jim Echter: Setting up your skew, spindle gouge, parting tool and calipers.
Tuesday 23rd March 2021
I’ll show you how to take a factory new or an old skew, put on a proper skew angle, grind the bevel to the correct inclusive angle, profile the top and bottom surfaces and how to hone for a razor sharp edge. We’ll then review how to put a proper fingernail profile on a gouge, sharpen a parting tool and modify standard calipers so they are safe to use.
