rolling over edges....
Response To:

David Weaver
..the first few times I used buffers or powered leather wheels, I rolled edges over and concluded that I don't get it or it wasn't for me.

I use an incannel gouge a lot on guitars (for bulk work) and now lots of other things where removing bulk. I got stuck using it twice on the cabinet that I posted because I had in-situ waste that needed removing and for whatever reason, an incannel gouge goes through waste a lot easier than a chisel.

But using them heavily means sharpening them regularly and somehow the deburring wheel and buff turned out to be great.

Your mention of a carver makes a lot of sense - you can keep the tools relatively shallow if you like that geometry and then just buzz the tip subtly and it will hold up well.

I'm sure it's been done zillions of times. No idea is really truly original, even when this is even at that, only a slight variation on others' ideas (you could say that it's much like the three bevel system that charlesworth advocates, because other than the incannel gouge, I'm refershing a secondary bevel each time and then a tertiary bit of edge (rounding instead of a bevel) and when the secondary bevel gets large, you chase the tertiary.

I'll be using this method on more carving chisels now (than just the incannel gouges, but it's nice to use those. I have some already, but then a benefit auction on here generously offered by wiley has made me very patternmaker gouge rich).
