In Detail

Get the angles right every time when grinding a tool's bevel. The Axminster Sharpening Rest is suitable for most 150mm and 200mm bench grinders. The jig provides a wide stable platform on which to place the tool, it is supplied with a tool clamp that runs smoothly in a groove thus ensuring grinding is square and even. The unit can be moved back and forth on its base and with two pivot points, it is easily set to grind at almost any angle. Fix this jig onto the bench in front of the grinder and forget about the guesswork when trying to accurately reproduce a bevel angle. Takes blades up to 65mm wide.

Excellent product

Used it today, took very little time to set up with grinder and in no time had my chisels looking brand new without any nicks. Would highly recommend this product.

could be even better please :)

Very nice kit, feels solid, thick ali extrusion and nice bristol lever clamps.Overall good value for money.What would be nice are some instuctions! As a newbie I had no idea how to present the jig to the grinder, how to work out the setting to get a 25 degree angle and so on. The Veritas kit does seem to include all this?. Took some Googling and experimentation to get it set up so PDF instructions to download would be extremely useful please Axminster. Once started however it is a breeze.

Excellent

A very good product. Excellent value when compared with the more expensive Veritas Model. It works well and is well made. I purchsed mine with the Axminster Wide Stone Grinder and simply opened up the aperture with a hacksaw and file to suit the wider grinding wheel.

good value

I have a veritas in the sttates and I have since relocated to england. Needing to start retooling here I bought this and I find it to be a very nice tool rest and even better in value than the verritas.

Axminster Adjustable sharpening rest

I did not find this device measured up to expectations. I think the cheaper one would be better for a wood turner.
The base dictated how far the grinder needed to be away from the front of the bench. this means that long handled tools bottom out onthe front of the bench before the angle is achived. The whole adjustment mechanisim could not be tightend sufficently to prevent it moving under the slightest downward pressure. thowing the angles out and clogging the wheel withaluminium. the tool clamp is a waste of time. Perhaps I am not using it right!
