As requested, I've updated my profile. I'm retired and spend a good bit of my time in a woodworking shop currently located in my basement. It's pretty well equipped and I'll soon need to be considering a separate shop in the back yard as I keep stumbling over tools. I've got quite a few saw blades, shaper cutters, & router bits. I have a small Unimat Compact 5 lathe I bought many years ago and I recently bought a used, inexpensive, carbide saw blade sharpening machine I found in a local posting. With these two machines I'm able to sharpen all my own carbide tooling although it takes a while to do the larger shaper knives.
After a bit of practice, I'm now able to bring all these tools back to "as new" condition without a lot of difficulty. Since I don't have to send them anywhere to be sharpened, I can keep them sharp without a lot of trouble. I sharpen them more often than I otherwise would do, but as they're not very dull when sharpened, little carbide is removed & there's little waste.
My blades, bits & cutters are all stored in open racks in the shop & I thought it would be nice to dip them in wax as some of them will go months or years between uses.
p.s. - My most annoying woodworking complaint by far is the vast amount of time it takes to set up a router. Always, always, always, you spend more time to set up a router than it takes to use it. Someone really needs to get working on this! I have five or six routers, most of which I set up and never change, all because it takes so long to set them up.
