|Tip: Sharpening Oval Skew Chisels|
Sharpening Oval Skew Chisels
Dress your grinding wheel to get it clean and straight across. Mark the bevel of the skew chisel with a black marker so that you can easily see if the entire cutting edge has been sharpened. Use a Veritas grinding jig for skew chisels and attach two small magnets under the oval skew chisel to keep it from rocking side to side. A small mirror can be used to view the bevel from underneath as the edge is being sharpened.
