    Default Resharpened bits report

    I just removed one of my resharpened bits from Nelson Beadel, I have put over90 hrs on this bit.
    I was doing a special project and wanted to go with a new bit.
    Nelson did a very good on my old bits. You have some used bits, give him a try.

    I have often wondered why it is that
    Conservatives are called the "right" and Liberals are called the "left".
    "The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of
    the fool to the left."

    I have tried Nelson, my bits did not work good in spruce. Sent 18 to have reshaped. Back to using new bits. Nelson changed the geometry of the bits which worked for a few signs before they started ripping the wood. They might work good in hard wood but not much luck in soft wood. Some of them would even flip my breakers in the shop from overload. Not impressed at all.

    They work ok but don't have the longevity of new bits and carving bits last longer than cutting bits. But for not much money I am getting a few more hours from my old bits.

    Sometimes they work good but lower quality of carve. Iím going to see why he changed the cutting angle of the carving bits after Christmas rush. They roll a very large burr or wood chip which makes the bit dull fast. If heís not going to keep the original geometry I probably wonít use him again. Iím concerned the tools canít be fixed he ground way too much metal off them. I do know a company close that does this type work. We used them in manufacturing to sharpen our dull drills. I think Iíll go see them after Christmas and see if they would be willing to try sharping them. They have very hi tech equipment.
