For the turners out here who own and are using a Wolverine jig I need some help. I am installing the jig under a 6” grinder WITHOUT wheel guards. The instructions state “The base must be approximately 1/2” or less from the front of the mounting board”. Are they referring to the Wolverine base or grinder base?

The directions also recommend 6 1/4”-6 1/2” from the mounting board to the centerline of the grinder shaft. Is this clearance necessary for a grinder WITHOUT guards? Directions ” This will be necessary if any part of the base interferes with the wheel guards and when using the ONEWAY Dressing Jig”, which I also purchased.

I know that using a grinder without guards is not a very safe practice but my grinder did not have any at time of purchase. I am looking for some, but they are not readily available for a Cincinnati grinder from 1955.

They are talking about the Wolverine base. The front Wolverine base must be in line with the front of the wheel and front of the Wolverine base must be 1/2” or less from the front of the mounting board. The front of the Wolverine base must be 1/2” or less to front of the mounting board, so the mounting board doesn’t interfere with any Wolverine attachments like the vee-arm.

I’m not sure, if you will have any issues with any of the sharpening jig, if the Wolverine base is mounted closer than the 6 1/4” to the center of the wheel. If the base in mounted closer than the 6 1/4”, you may not be able to adjust the vee-arm or platform attachments to the correct position to get the correct sharpening angles.
