Bart, thanks for posting.
Stu, excellent videos as usual. Thanks for a nice tutorial.

Like Charlie said. Great find Bart and great tutorial Stu! Really enjoyed watching it.
Having met Eli and seen him demonstrate many of these techniques, I can attest to the fact that Stu did a good job of re-telling the stories.

I really enjoyed each of the videos. Thanks for calling them to my attention.
I have never done a convex edge in sharpening. I am going to try it.
First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.
Thanks to both Bart and Stu... very good videos and informative too..
Sharpening is one of the toughest parts of my turning... I don't have a slow speed grinder or the oxide wheels... I actually do most of my sharpening on a 1 inch belt sander from HF... periodically I take the tools over to a good friend's house, take up his time and use his sharpening grinder... he has the raptor's and all the set up so I can reshape my tools after I've sharpened them on the belt a few times... I do have a high speed, but not the right wheels... In a video by Kirk DeHeer he mentions that I could use the high speed grinder with the oxide wheels, being careful to watch the heat buildup....

My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
Thanks for sharing Bart and to you Stu.
