If you've ever wondered what bevel angle to grind on a particular woodturning tool, or how to modify the grind to make it perform that little bit
better, then these charts are for you. As the man who 'invented' the O'Donnell grind and developed the superb grinding jig which bore his name, Mick O'Donnell can be trusted as someone who knows a thing or two
when it comes to the "dos and don'ts" of tool grinding. These charts bring that knowledge home to you.
There are three charts in this special series - which are not widely available - and each is encapsulated in
a heavy-duty laminate designed to give a lifetime's use in your workshop - for these are practical 'Works of Reference' not coffee table dressing! The charts are large-format, approximately A3 size (300 x 415mm /
16.5 x 11.75") and printed in two colours for easy reading. The image heading this page really can't do justice to these excellent workshop aids, but then all technologies have their limitations!
Each chart in
the set takes as its subject one of the principal groups of woodturning tools in common use, these being: Gouges; Chisels, Parting Off and Sizing Tools; and Scrapers. For each class of tools there is all of the
information provided to help you keep your tools sharp and in tip-top condition.
