    Default Bargain graver sharpener ?

    I didnt realise how long ago it was but after watching the video it was over ten years ago, I made a graver sharpener https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8okY...channel=Josef1 sorry for the annoying sound!!
    today I I found this on amazon
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08GP6Y8...FCTFQ62_0?th=1
    and with the fine one of these

    I recon you could make a pretty cheap sharpner even better if you could secure the lap with magnetic tape. I know its not GRS but it is lots more economical !

    I've not tried it as I still use the one I made, I am tempted but it may help someone out if you like a project in the meantime.

    I sharpen mine by hand, a retired Watch maker taught me twenty years ago, just like sharpening wood working tools only much smaller and with finer stones.

    That's cool, I have tried by hand and they are always a wobbly lol, personally I get better angles when setting up new gravers with the machine.
