Sharpening on Diamonds series

Those of you regularly following will know that I've been testing out the diamond whetstone sharpening system for the last few months. During this time, I filmed some common sharpening tasks, and they are currently being edited and published on YouTube.
You can find a playlist for them here. This will be added to, so keep checking back, and request something if it's not there.

So far it's been a positive experience. I've learnt a few things from James Barry, for which I'm most grateful. James manufactures professional diamond whetstones, and you may spot him at woodworking shows, giving demonstration.
Find out more at his Facebook page.


The biggest revelations have been how little pressure is needed, and the benefits of using a lapping fluid rather than water (convenience and longer life).
