This tool rest is designed for mounting directly to the bench in front of either a 150mm(6") or 200mm(8") bench grinder. In the face of the rest there is a slot into which the optional grinding jig (M0601) slides. The toolrest and the grinding jig can be bought as separate items or, if preferred, as a pair with a useful cost saving. As always with Veritas products this tool rest is well thought-out and immaculately produced, and should prove to be of great use to the turner or general woodworker.

Quality tool restMost grinders have very poor to rests that are nothing short of useless for repeatable accurate griniding of tool angles. I recondition tools regularly and needed a good quality tool rest and this is it. Combined with the jig it will reproduce practically any angle and allows avert quick and true primary bevel to ground. It is a little fiddley to set the tool up in the jig but with practice one gets used to it and it takes seconds when just touching up a pre existing angle. I am buying a second one for the second wheel on my grinder to make things easier. Highly recommend this jig and rest.
