Should you Sharpen New Chisels?
Chisels are an essential tool for those who have decided to embark on the woodworking journey. You may have purchased a lovely set of antique chisels or grabbed a brand new one straight from the shelf. If you’re new to the hobby, you’re likely asking yourself, “Do I need to sharpen this chisel?”
Chisels coming off of the factory line are sharp to a point (no pun intended). Still, you’ve got some work to do before your new tools are going to be up to snuff.
If you were planning on getting straight to work with your new chisels, you would have to take a slight detour. Read on to learn how to accomplish that on my blog woodworkerlodge.com.
