- Oneway Wolverine jig system including Skew Jig and Vari-Grind.
- Brand: Oneway | Category: Grinders
I must start this of by saying that I really would like to give this 4.5 stars but that’s not available here. I set this up on my old grinder and this week I bought a new Rikon grinder from Woodcraft so I mounted that to my base. It does take some time to set these bases up but it’s not hard at all. The two tool rests are made from heavy welded steel and the two bases are an extruded aluminum and is nothing if not stout. The only issue that I had with it is the flat grinding rest, the edges were a bit rough and when I would sharpen my scraper, the edges of the square bar stock would catch on the high spots on the edge of the rest. I just took a file across the top and took down the high spots and now it works very well.
I’ve been using this since just before Christmas and I love it. I also picked up the dressing tool and that thing works far better that the “T” style dressing tool that came with my grinder. That thing leaves grooves in the wheel and the diamonds have begun to fall off.
I can recommend this with full confidence, it’s a great tool but it may need a little cleaning up out of the box.
