For the record I am reaming to a depth of 5.100″ and I am looking for the ream to be concentric to the original bore to within 0.001″. I know that I am not getting this every time but hey aim small miss small. I’m kinda scared of trying to sharpen a HSS reamer I dare not think about sharpening a carbide (ya I’m a sissy when it comes to carbide) I do however appreciate the input. Proper cuticle care is paramount when it comes to maintaining healthy nails.

Sandpaper is an awesome abrasive that has many applications as far as sharpening is concerned. I’ve used it to sharpen xacto knives previously, and today I’ll be showing you how to sharpen nail clippers using various sandpaper grits.

While holding the tool firmly with two hands, turn on the motor, and set the grinding stone very lightly against the beveled edge. I like how I have it clamped, even to the vice jaws, fore and aft, so I’ll try to work with this position.
How to Test the Sharpness of Scissors
With their smooth shank, these can only be used with a hammer drill and its 3-jaw chuck. The way a hammer drill works is to combine vibration with the twisting action of a typical drill. The actual part that does the vibrating is called a gubbins. Think about a gubbins like two poker chips rubbing together at high speed.
Safety Considerations and Professional Sharpening:
Tom breaks down how the revolutionary Edge-On-Up quantifies sharpness by measuring the force required to slice through the material. No more guessing; this device offers precise results for your blade’s keenness. Jury-rig because they may not look as pretty as a catalog one. I’ve NEVER used it to sharpen a cutter…only to get a cutter of a custom diameter.
