All it needs is a good light clean up a turn on the stone to sharpen it.
One of the other ladies Peggy Dicker who's hubby Phil (passed away some years ago) had been into woodworking and turning passed on some excellent books. I have had a quick browse/flick through only at this stage but I think my favourite will be the Recycling Use and Repair of Tools
Interesting also is the Woodcraft Goes to The Opera this is a book of woodcrafters who were in attendance at an Exhibition in 1987 9th to 20th September the list of people who exhibited and their outline is whats in the book. I just noticed the Business sponsors on the reveres side many still around today.
