|IN-CANNEL GOUGE SHARPENING TOOLS|
|IN-CANNEL GOUGE INSTRUCTIONS|| |
An in-cannel gouge is a bit tricky because it cannot be sharpened on a flat bench stone. It is rather simple however using either a fine (red) FSK or the appropriate size Diamond Honing Cone to match the radius of the gouge.
Take the sharpener and match it to the bevel. To hold the gouge, cradle it from underneath in your hand with the bevel facing toward you (see illustrations on back pages). Usually gouges have about a 20 degree bevel (Either hold the gouge at 20 degrees and the sharpener horizontal or vice versa). Run the sharpener up and down the bevel gradually moving from one side to the other.
|Take the burr off the outside by laying the gouge flat on a DMT® Diamond Whetstone™.Drag it across the stone while rolling the gouge left to right to get the burr off the entire bevel. Lastly, use a small Diamond Honing Cone to wipe the burr off the inside of the gouge.|

|Out-cannel gouges also appear tricky to sharpen. They can be done on a W6 Diamond Whetstone™, DuoSharp¨ Bench Stone or Dia-Sharp®. Simply match the outside bevel angle to the stone (see marker technique in section 4). Next, stroke lightly, lengthwise along the whetstone while slowly rolling the out-cannel gouge left to right. This will sharpen the entire bevel. Some people like to do this in a figure 8 pattern.|
|The final step is to use a small Diamond Honing Cone to wipe the burr off the inside of the gouge.|
