HSS Lathe Tool Grinding

This is a copy of information found on Steve′s Workshop. Steve has produced a useful article on grinding your own HSS lathe tools. At the end of his article is a free to download PDF designed as a workshop wall-chart. Steve kindly says "Please print, laminate, share and distribute as needed" so taking him at his word I am distributing the information.

The poster is available for download At Steve's Workshop. There is also a practical guide to sharpening including images and a link to Steve's tool grinding rest.
