Wolverine Grinding Jig
When using a grinder to put the primary bevel on your blades, as I do, you need a jig that allows you to set the grind angle. Teaching a seminar at a school one day I found these Wolverine jigs and they beat the pants off of all other grinder jigs for sharpening blades.
Use to upgrade an inexpensive grinder for grinding a primary bevel on chisels and plane blades.
A simple, Heavy duty, well made jig.
Features Wolverine’s system of adjustment that is quick and solid.
Thick metal platform acts like a heat sink helping you keep your blade from over-heating.
Increases the versatility of your grinder, this is one of the best grinding accessories you can own.
Can be used with 6", 8" or 10" grinders.
The one to use
Rob and company are always fantastic. This tool rest is heavy, really easy to install, and use. I use them on two different grinders. One is for sharpening woodworking tools with CBN wheels and the other is for metal working tools. I would not be able to use my grinders accurately without a stable tools rest. They are great.
I am expecting these deliveries. Covid has slowed down deliveries in Australia
Quality tool rest
I just put my new Wolverine grinding jig to the test while grinding a Cosmanized style dovetail chisel and it worked very well. Solid construction. Plenty of surface area for a chisel or plane blade. I did have to attach a piece of 1/8" plywood with a cut out for an extension along the sides of the grinding wheel to grind down the sides of the chisel, but thankfully there was plenty of surface area to clamp the plywood onto. Quality product!
Great quality, nice and firm when secured...But..
....either my chisels are too short or the platform is too wide! Even my newer chisels run into the handle. No problem with plane irons, of course. Also wish the platform had more polish so the blades slide more smoothly. Does it sound silly if I add a piece of formica? Open to suggestions.
