That is great!
What a great character Capt. Eddie is!
The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.

Good "ol Capn Eddie
He has a lot of other free tips and mdse for sale.....very reasonable.
He is the kind of guy that just wants to give back.
Anybody can become a woodworker, but only a Craftsmen can hide his mistakes!
The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.
I have Capn Eddie's Blackhawk sharpening system (which comes with the $2 sharpening jig). My gouges are sharp and it is really easy to touch up my tools. I would recommend it to anyone. It is about half to two-thirds the price of the comparable Wolverine jig. Not quite as polished, but it does the job.
His videos got me back into woodturning, so I like to support him when I can.
$2 is a darn fine price with todays situation. I like the guys style friendly and open and a lateral thinker to boot.
A pity it doesn't work for carving gouges as there are so many different profiles.
