Re: Trow & Holden


a bench grinder is nice to use though. You don' have to clamp anything down and it's quick as well.

Re: Trow & Holden


I don't have to clamp it down at at..the grinder is held with one hand chisel in the other or I just lay it down and use it that way. I don't always remember to take chisels out at the end of the day and sharpen them.but I always have a grinder on the job for this or that...so it's more convenient for me that way. Either way works...to each his own.

Re: Trow & Holden


How often would you have to sharpen a carbide chisel?

Re: Trow & Holden


depends on use and what type of stone you're working with. Generally speaking 3-4 times less often than with steel

Thats entirely dependent on how much you use it and on what stone.
Personally, I bang on Corinthian Granite or NE Field Stone much of the year and sharpen mine maybe twice.

Also depends on what Chisel. If its a hand point, way more often. But a 2" tracer has tons more meat to start with so it takes a lot longer to round out. My beveled chipper hardly shows wear at all and thats like 6 years old now and used often.

Re: Trow & Holden


i have the same answer as the others...it depends. That was the other thing I like about the pads, nice for touching up the edges without a lot of grinding. Most of my chisels are 8 years old or so, a few are 3 or 4. Still plenty of carbide.
