"My friend and i booked the sharpening course to learn how to use the ProEdge properly. the pre course calls meant that they could change the course to suit our needs as we are both visually impaired. Mick had a wealth of knowledge and made sure we understood everything and kept us safe except for the odd cut lol. I can highly recommend this course and it was excellent value for money."

"STUNNING. the course was superbly paced. The content and approach were both perfect. The knowledge of the tutor was stunningly marvellous and his teaching skills were 5 star. I took all of my turning gouges, scrapers, parting etc and these were all sharpened as part of live demonstrations - they have never performed as well as they did after this expert attention."
