Hands on Demonstrating tool sharpening

The evening was arranged so that tools could be sharpened, then, with the three lathes setup, the tools could be used.
Chris Clay used his wet stone and grinder to show how tools could be sharpened. Angus Stuart brought in his grinder and grinding jigs. Chris then demonstrated, using members tools, how to setup the wet stone and dry grinders. Various methods of sharpening the tools were demonstrated.

The lathes were also setup so tools could be tried out as soon as they were sharpened, this a gave an opportunity for new members to try out the various tools.
