I have been repeated watching Jake's carving demo video from the 2012 Arctic Fire video series, (http://www.bladesmithsforum.com/index.php?showtopic=23706) and I am preparing to give this a try. The only thing I do not know is what size tools are the best for this type of carving. Does anyone have any experience with these tools? https://www.toolsforworkingwood.com/store/dept/TXQQ Which ones are closest to the sizes most folks use?
Okay, there is a JS I am hoping to get lessons from, and a while back I visited his shop. He said to start out one of the first things I should get is a grinder (of course), and he said I should try to go for a disc sander, as they are considerably cheaper than a belt grinder, and can do a variety of things. So, I've saved up about $300 or so, and I'm trying to find a good one online. Any advice or tips? Help with brands would be awesome as well, as in which ones are good but inexpensive, or which brands to stay away from. Any help at all would be awesome. Thanks, Caleb.
