Spiralling & Texturing Tool

The Spiralling Tool wheel (shown to the right) is sharpened by rubbing a 120 - 150 grit diamond file against the bevel on the wheel whist it is being spun. The surface to be sharpened is indicated by the arrow.


The wheel can be spun by hand, or by pressing it against a spinning piece of scrap wood.

The Texturing Tool wheel (shown to the left) should be spun by pressing it against a spinning piece of scrap wood (400-500 RPM).

This is highly recommended as the edges are pretty sharp points !


Notes & Comments


Spiralling and texturing tool part 1

Sharpening technique starts around 2:00, so video set to start at the same point.

Note how the video says to set the scrap wood's rotation at 400-500 RPM when sharpening via that method.
