To pull this topic off the other thread and start here.
Several of us have mentioned this over the time I have been a member, and most know that tool maintenance is key to having top quality work and safety.
I had pulled a 6 foot section of laminate counter top and had been intending to create a electrical bench (not electronics, but simple stuff) and then as we expanded and I had to do some work with our tools, I was reminded of how much time my old shop teacher preached about tool maintenance and safety.
(I expect to chop the counter top down to a smaller size, but that is open, and I would like to have it at sitting height, not bench height, but that is also open)
So here were my thoughts.
Basics: A place set up to sharpen tools, and perform basic maintenance on the portable ones.
To start with a simple diamond sharpening stone (Harbor Freight $10), some steel wool, some mineral oil (or your favorite type) a paper towel dispenser and a lamp.
I have also bought a tool shop low end grinder that i will offer up, though we will want to change out the stones, and it does have the flexi-wand.
Drill bit sharpening tool
More advanced sharpening stones / paddles / blocks to suit the round, smaller, odd shaped stuff.
Print out and laminate guides to sharpening tools, just in case somebody questions what to do ( or whatever the reason)
So what am I missing (besides a magnifying glass for myself)
