Description

In Detail

Attaining the correct profiles on your turning tools could transform your turning, and the advantages of using a jig are that the angles are easily repeatable and less material is removed at each sharpening. The tool is clamped into a holder mounted on the end of a pivot leg; the end of the leg rotates in a conical housing in the horizontal support bar. Grinding of gouges is carried out by rotating the tool from side to side whilst parting tools, skew chisels and the like are laid flat on the wheel at the correct angle. For that classic fingernail profile with swept back wings on your bowl gouges, this is the jig that will produce it with one perfect single facet bevel. An optional additional base and slide for your Tru-Grind sharpening system enables you to use your jig at both ends of your bench grinder. This can be especially useful if you have different grades of stone or you could set up for different types of turning tools at each wheel. The base is set up to fit the right hand side of your grinder, but they are reversible to fit either end.

Tru-Grind

I have used several sharpening jig over the years, this is the only one I now use. It will sharpen all my tools and is easy to use.
The main problem for new turner is grinding the tools, it means you go back to the lathe with a sharp tool.
The Tru-grind is the only sharpening system I recommendnd to buy.

Wow

What a difference this made to my gouges, I can actually now get round to turning something decent now I have managed to get my tools sharp without grinding them away to nothing. Very easy to set up and use, even for a newbie like myself
