Default Ask xplorx4 what a sharp chisel is.....

I'll bet he can tell you after spending a couple of hours on my Worksharp 3000 today

Now he has a nice set of really sharp chisels to work with. Maybe I should have given him a box of band aids to take along just in case.

hi Bob

i envy Jerry being able to drop by and learn from a pro! i wish i could. but i keep struggling trying to learn on my own and maybe i will remember better by doing it that way.

Game plan: Tell Bob what a handsome and vigorous man he is, ask if it was him as "Smilin' Bob" in those Enzyte commercials, ship dull chisels in a package with return postage and address lable, get back sharp chisels! Yeah, this might work... Not!

Which Work Sharp machine do you have Bob?

I do not think I can tell you what a sharp chisel is using some technical jargon but I can at least take a good shot at getting one sharpened. Bob is a much better teacher than he might ever let on, he's good. He showed me on one and I got to do the rest, six I think. You could shave with the better of the bunch. Makes me want to get a better quality chisel, and a sharpener like his to be sure. Lavon it is a honor to be able to spend time with Bob, I will always treat times there as such. Bob is becoming a good friend and we can always use a friend.

Lavon if you get up this way, you can visit both our shops. I could look forward to someone showing me how all the stuff I have works, because as it is now I don't have a clue on most of it.

You can expect my chisel set to arrive by Wednesday Bob.
I sent return postage and faxed over a beer. It should be waiting on you in the in box now as a matter of fact.
Make sure you get them nice and sharp for me now.

:-P
