If anyone has old hand tools and wants to learn how to use them better, get them sharp, tune them up, or restore them from flea market condition to like-new feel free to drop my the hand tool workshop on Thursday nights. We do not follow an agenda so bring your tools or projects and we can pair you up with people who get help you get started or get past a problem area. If you have hand tools you do not use and want to donate to the Guild or sell, let me know and I can help you get them into the hand of people who will put them to good use. I'm in the guild directory.


I use the WorkSharp system for sharpening my chislels and lathe tools. I love the system. But I would say go with your comfortable with, and your budget is comfortable with.
