Description

In Detail

Packed with excellent features the machine includes a drawer fitted within the motor housing, plus the advantage of even more useful jig storage space in the optional drawer base. The enclosed motor housing keeps water and dirt out of the interior of the machine, whilst a wide lip on the bath catches any excess water caused by runoff during sharpening. The lower portion of the stone running in the bath carries the water continuously over the grinding surface, eliminating the risk of overheating the tool being sharpened. The JSSG-10 is powered by a quiet running induction motor. Torque adjustment ensures consistent pressure from the stainless steel drive shaft to the grinding wheel. Variable speed means the optimum peripheral speed is always available even as the stone diameter is reduced over time. A scale on the side of the case provides a quick reference of the wheel's diameter. Speed is adjustable from 90 to 150rpm which allows for a stone reduced to 150mm diameter.

A comprehensive package of accessories comes as standard including: Stone Grader, Straight Edge Jig, Angle Setting Jig, Bevel Angle Measuring Device, Honing Compound, Support Bar and an instructional DVD.

Save your money & get a Tormek

Like other reviewers, disappointed with this purchase: (1) there is way too much flex in the guide rail to produce a square grind on a chisel or plane blade; (2) after leaving it for a month or so, the grinding wheel had rusted solid to the shaft. Why oh why didn't Jet make this in stainless? Expensive mistake I won't be making again.




Axminster reply
" Thank you for your feedback, machines supplied since Jan 2015 have a stainless steel shaft fitted to prevent the problem you have experienced. This has made these machines a lot more reliable, preventing problems when removing the wetstone."

disappointed with the machine

I purchased this machine to improve the sharpening of my carving and joinery edge tools i.e. plane irons chisels etc etc. I found it difficult to set up to produce a plane iron that was square even after truing up the stone with the diamond truing jig. Most of the jigs worked reasonably well but be aware that worn chisels i.e. short length will not fit the jigs, I found that the best way to sharpen these Items was by freehand grinding, and as high proportion of my tools fall into this category it sort of defeated the objective of the machine. I now find that the wheel has rusted solid to the spindle and cant be moved. I also purchased the additional leather honing wheel, which ran dramatically out of true so much so that it was difficult to control the tool during honing I reported this back to Axminster who dispatched another one immediately (well done Axminster). I have always in the past ground my tools freehand from an abrasive wheel grinder with consistent and excellent result (I have been in the joinery woodworking trade all my life) but with advancing years I was finding it increasingly difficult to obtain consistent results, hence my reason for buying what I considered a novices machine to provide the results I was used to. The wet stone grinder only went part way to helping me to achieve that and for that reason I find it disappointing. The machine appears to be well built but would definitely benefit from the use of a stainless steal main shaft. I am disappointed to the degree that I have now resorted back to sharpening my tools with a dry stone grinder and abandoning this machine.

Destroys itself if left unused

I bought this about 4 years ago because it was cheaper than Tormek. It had worked OK - not great, but OK - but I left it unused for 6 months while I was otherwise engaged. On returning, I find the main shaft rusted, the grindstone cracked, and the shaft seized in its bearings. I think that is very poor design and poor quality. Now I need to sepnd even more money to replace it - I certainly wouldn't buy Jet again, I'm afraid. I see David Young above has the same problem, it's not just my unit.

Nice good value machine but minor flaws

I was lucky enough to be given this machine as a birthday present . from the box the wheel ran very true ,so I sharpened all my chisels planes etc . The result was excellent ,never had my tools so sharp. The machine works well but fitting the water trough is a nightmare trying to fit it behind the wheel is a real fiddle ,had slide the wheel forward on its shaft to locate the mounting tabs onto the casing. this spoils what is otherwise a very nice machine !! come on jet you need to design a upgrade !! . ps good idea to copper grease the shaft its not stainless .

this wetstone is good in the main use and the kit that comes with it is good, but beware if you do not use it for a long time the stone will rust on the shaft. mine has and I have failed to remove up to this date.
