Hi fellow LJs,
Continuing on the shop projects, I build a very simple MDF grinder stand along with a grinding jig for my lathe tools.
On the left hand side a small slider and I’ve reused the arm of the original tool rest to build the adjustable platform. The rest is a piece of aluminum epoxied onto the cast iron arm mounted on a piece of scrap Jatoba.
On the right hand side (fine wheel), I made an adjustable arm with a “V” block at the end to use in combination with my fingernail grinding jig. The nice thing about this system is that you have plenty of degree of freedom. I also made a depth gauge out of scrap Jatoba to set the protrusion of my bowl gauge (2 inches) each time.
I’ve used standard miter slot for the rails but I’ve reinforced it with some cherry. In order to remove any play in the slides, I’ve taped some drawers sliding tape on 3 sides of each runner holders.
It seems to work pretty well so far.
Thanks for watching
