I recently watched a video by Capt Eddie about this method of sharpening my lathe tools. I also saw where Gerry(TheDane) set up his system. This spurred me into going ahead and setting up my sys. I bought the HF belt sander and installed the board on the stop. I drilled out the shallow holes 4 1/4” from belt to support the home made jig I put the tool in. I had previously built the jig to hold the lathe tool and this also came from Capt Eddie. I wanted a different grind on one of my tools so I placed the tool in the jig and placed against the belt at the desired angle. I then drilled 2 more holes in the board at 2 5/16 for this setting. The two holes in the middle of the four close to the belt are where I was trying to find the place and now aren’t used. Also the hole up close to the stop is for another jig and also to put the jig for the lathe tools.
I’m not getting the results on the 45deg setting I wanted and don’t know if it is me or the sys. I ordered the Woodcraft slow grinder and will build the wolverine sys and try that. I needed a better bench grinder anyway so not a wasted purchase if I’m still not satisfied with the results.
