How It Works

You may have heard of woodworkers using diamonds, glass, and other materials to sharpen their chisels, but thankfully, getting a scary-sharp edge doesn’t have to be that complicated. It’s true that there are many methods of sharpening your chisels, but for many people, woodworking is something they enjoy. In other words, you want to spend your valuable time working on projects in your shop instead of sharpening your tools.

Thankfully, our jig is incredibly simple to use. All you do is attach the jig to your chisel, utilize the jig’s consistent angle, and use a whetstone to sharpen your chisel’s edge. It really is as simple as that!

Whether you’ve tried other methods in the past or this is your first experience sharpening your chisels, we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how fast and easy it is to get an incredibly sharp edge on your chisel, allowing you to get back to what’s important — finishing your project.

Add Utility to Your Woodworking Setup

Whether you’re hand cutting dovetails, shaping an edge, chiseling a dado, or cutting a mortise, chisels are your best friend in the woodshop. There are countless uses for chisels, and although you may not need them for every single project you undertake, one thing is for certain — when you do need a chisel, nothing else will do the job. That’s why it’s so crucial to have chisels at the ready. 

Of course, they won’t be of any use if you’re fighting against them the entire time, and that’s what makes a sharp edge such a necessity. Safety in the woodshop is of the utmost importance, and you may have heard that dull tools are dangerous tools. That’s just as true at the bandsaw as it is for your chisels. Trust us when we say that being able to get a nice, sharp edge on your cutting tools makes all the difference in the world.
