    Tod and Stu's power strop!

    I have been using sandpaper and glass to sharpen my chisels for a while with varying degrees of success.
    I saw on another post where Stu explained how he made a "power strop". I thought I would give it a try. For a total of about 20 bucks I made one this weekend. All I can say is WOW! I have never had my chisels this sharp. I've shaved so many bald spots in my arm hair a guy I work with said it looks like I have the red dog mange.

    Thanks guys!

    I made a regular hand held strop a while back and was duly impressed. I think this will be next on my to do list!

    Good job John!

    I know when I made one, Tod told me I'd be impressed, and I believed him, but man alive was I IMPRESSED
