I just bought this grinder a couple of days ago and i built this jig yesterday. It seems to do really well with my gouges and skews. Im contemplating what to do on the other side. I have yet to figure out how to sharpen some of my other lathe tools.(im very new to turning) For some reason, i really like my roundnose scraper, but have not figured out the best way to sharpen. I also thought this jig would be good for my parting tool, but i was wrong. The concave of the grinding wheel was jacking up the shape of the parting tool. Any suggestions? I also need to get some finer wheels. Can anyone recommend what i should use and where i can get a little bang for my buck. (This hobby is hurting the pocket book)
I didnt explain how the jig works. It’s just my version of many others ive seen and i think its self explanatory. Its fairly simple, and i am totally open to suggestions from the more experienced turners.
