Eighteen days hence will mark my fifth anniversary as a member of this hallowed forum. It also means I have owned the attached for almost five years as it was a recommended purchase. I forgot I had it and it has - as can be seen in the photo - been gathering dust ever since! I have no idea what I'm supposed to do with it.
After the saga of trying to find someone to hang the garage doors, I hate to sound ungrateful to the chap who came to my aid. However, he managed to chip every single one of my nine chisels - most of which had never been used - which I now need to (lowers voice, coughs) sharpen. Even earlier than joining this forum I bought a cheap Silverline benchtop grinder to sharpen my (even cheaper) chisels. I managed to reduce one to a 2" stub without getting anything even remotely close to a sharp edge. I freely acknowledge my 'technique' - or ignorance - probably played a significant in that spectacular fail and although I've recently learnt my current set aren't the high quality I thought them to be I don't want them suffering the same fate.
