WeekendMiniaturist Posted April 2, 2016 Share Posted April 2, 2016 I received the Seminar Descriptions today in the mail. As always I want to attend more seminars then nights available....Great job to our instructors offering great seminars for 2016. I like the panel format - and would like to have Guild Artisans, Fellows and Instructors consider a panel on sharpening various kinds of tools. Based upon the class descriptions that I have read in the past, I know the some instructors use micro lathe tools, some instructors prefer gravers... in the metals world we would use a tool post for those initial cuts. My suggestions for a tool program would answer questions about: Standard woodworking (Micro) Lathe tools Tools for use in a lathe's tool post. Tools used for carving by hand. (It is my understanding that the angle is different then Standard lathe tools used for turning.) It would be great to hear the pros and cons of different tools from a panel, and more specifically why the instructor favors the tool of choice, and then which tool to use for roughing, vs fine tuning your object of affection. (I know it seems obvious, but it is a standard course of thought and I can easily miss a standard practice.) It would be great to feel what a really sharp lathe tool feels like.... And then instructions on how to get that same edge. How SHARP is SHARP? How do I get to the absence of an edge? Tamra Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
