I was just about to bite the bullet and purchase a lathe tool sharpening jig (about $100), when I decided at the last minute to check Craigslist. But what are the chances of finding a lathe tool sharpening jig on CL in Salem, Oregon? Well, surprise, surprise. Not only that, but it was NEW IN BOX and I picked it for half the price of a new one! Moral of the story, always check CL first :-)
I haven’t had a chance to mount it up and try it out yet, but I’ll let y’all know how it goes.
