!Hey Bob, Rich is on the money here with sharpening. If you go to and click on “newsletters” look for Sept 2009 page 10 & you will find a complete guide for sharpening all your chisels, it is set out very well, just ignore any reference to colour coded jigs, it’s the angles that are important.
Make sure you use the correct type of stone and keep the wheel dresser square for the best results
good luck, remember it’s all about , practice, practice & more practice
