I Think we should have a new section for stupid questions...like the one I have...(sheesh). OK, I am a beginner turner. Kind of self taught. I see videos and such and read...a little. I've successfully turned pens, handles, vases (small ones) and now a small jewelry dish. So far, I seem to be doing ok. The one problem I have is in sharpening the chisels... Please keep in mind I live on a fixed income and making large purchases is very difficult. So, here's what I have done. I purchased the Grizzly 10 inch wet grinder. I also purchased a couple of Tormek jigs. The one for sharpening gouges and skews. It seems, to me anyhow, that it's a learning curve. I have arthritis in my hands, not debilitating, but enough to make some tasks a bit more difficult. Ok, I understand the learning curve, but (here it comes) how do I know the tools are sharp, especially the gouges, without using them to see if they are or not...? See,may face is red for asking this.....
