Got a nice deal on this Ryobi grinder at the Depot, but the tool rests are utterly useless. So I searched here and found a few designs. This one looked good to me.
Sharpened up my chisels today. Only one needed grinding, but this did the trick for sure.
I actually built all the parts and then went out to get the bolts. The main pieces are 4” wide, so I got 4 1/2” bolts. Spot the problem?
Yeah, I forgot to add in for the side bars that hold the two pieces together. So those two pieces got cut down a bit on each side. All works good now though.
My chisels are all scary sharp and most of my arm hair is now missing because I kept shaving my arms and marveling at how sharp the edges were.
