Im out of town working but since I have a small lathe I brought it along. Gotta keep my night job busy. I didnt have a bench to mount my bench grinder too so I made this.

Its 1/2” oak veneered plywood with the wolverine sharpening jig mounted under the grinder on both sides so I can sharpen all of my lathe tools on this. I also put felt pads on the bottom so it doesnt sit right on the bolts.

Good thinking, Andy. You do need a grinder if you are using the lathe on the road!!

You absolutely cannot take a lathe and grinder with you on the road. Now cut it out and get back to work!
