You can usually save money through Rakuten (formerly Ebates) if you order through repairclinic.com. Here's a link to sign up for it (it helps me out a little if you use this link, thanks):

Sharpening your hand planes and chisels need not be expensive. Actually, you can probably do it with supplies you already have around the house. In this video I show how I do it.

All you need to sharpen your plane or chisel is a flat surface (I use glass because I know it is perfectly flat), sand paper, and a lubricant (I use Windex in this video).

The 15 dollar jig I use is optional really, but I chose to buy one because I am terrible at maintaining the angle myself. If you want to get one, you can use the link below (it is not an affiliate link)

The jig I used: https://amzn.to/2Iz2kvV

I spent about 5 minutes on each grit of sand paper. To take it to the next level you can go even higher on the sand paper grit, use a diamond stone, or honing compound. But for a budget friendly solution that gets you a serviceable edge, I think this is good enough.

Videos sharing my adventures in home ownership! I'm a DIY home owner and I create videos about home repair, maintenance and renovation. I'm also a woodworking hobbyist / maker and share those projects as well. I hope by sharing my experiences people can learn from what I have done and hopefully have the same successes while avoiding similar failures.
