Another week has passed with more and not quite so interesting stuff coming on my way. The first week I've done much more than just filed over and over again. This time filing was a small part of the whole week.
Fire was a big part of this week to harden and temper some steel. Sharpening stone was a tool needed to make the latter done as without a smooth surface it's pretty hard to see the color. It was needed for it's actual purpose to sharpen as well. Bench grinder, a new friend of mine, I will come to talk more later on in this journal. Grinding stone was used as well with it's lovely layer of water and no danger to my fingers at all. The speed was so slow it was impossible to do any harm to any body parts of mine. Standing drill has been used and discussed before in my last journal entry, so no more talk about it. The lathe, which is absolutely fun to use, is what I'll be doing next week and screw up some more pieces.
The machines brought something else with them. Protective gear that one should use with the tools. My two favorites are eye protection, and it already got used as there is a pretty interesting scratch in the shape of a V on one lens, and hearing protection. Stay by the bench grinder for long enough and your ears go numb especially when someone else doing there stuff on the second one next you. Thank you and I'll gladly welcome these two important tools to my bag of tricks.

Surprisingly enough the title isn't directed to the sharpening stone nor the grinding stone. The bench grinder was used for this task instead. A "dull" drill bit needed to be ground into a sharp one and at the same time the angles and everything had to be just right. In total three bits had to be sharpened, each of a different size, and it took me about 5 hours to accomplish this. Most of this time was spend in front of the lovely bench grinder and metal dust all over my fingers(and according to my class mates on my nose). Two bits were ground into nothing as I kept doing something wrong. Stupidly, it's all because of my own mistake and I cannot blame anyone else for it. Once I had gotten the hang of it the last bit was sharpened in less than a minute. The other ones took longer as I kept trying to correct the position of the drill bit without realizing the issue was in something else. This issue made the result of the right position seem from and I just didn't see this at all. Lesson learned and now I should be able to get them sharpened with little more speed than this time.

Time to stop writing or no ones going to read this journal. Look forward to talk about something much smaller, which oddly enough seems to be so far easier than the last tool I had to make.
