This jig holds the tool firmly in position whilst grinding in order to give a perfectly straight edge. The positions of the jig clamping screws and the location pin can be altered to cater for different widths of tool and for setting a 30° angle for a skew chisel. The jig is designed for use with the Veritas grinder tool rest (available seperatly).
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 jig is well thought-out and immaculately produced, and should prove to be of great use to the turner or general woodworker.
