Woodworking Tool Sharpness Levels
Hey Folks,

I don't have much to add to the conversation.  I just purchased an EdgeOnUp PT50B.  I am hoping to use it to "train" me on my Tormek and hand stone sharpening.  I sharpen chisels (mostly high end Japanese chisels) and both western and Japanese plane blades.  As you may know, Japanese plane blades present a unique challenge to sharpen, and frankly to use.  I haven't really got there yet.  I do have a good set of Lee Nielsen and Lee Valley planes and I am looking forward to testing my sharpening efficacy with the PT50B.  

Ken S. suggested I come over to this forum.  Thank you Ken!

Welcome to the Exchange Joe! I'm sure you will enjoy your new PT50B. Not only is it a lot of fun, but also extremely informative.

It's especially useful when trying to figure if what you are doing is working. Try something - take a measurement. Try something else - take another and so on. It let's you know what works and what does not.

Keep us informed as to your progress!
It sounds great. But I have a question. I am a new guy of woodworker. I wanna know what kind of material of cutting tool is the best.
Best material will improve the efficiency dramatically. Pleasse give me some advice. Reallly appreciate.
