I picked up one of these for my Grizzly T10010 sharpening system, thinking it would be sweet to be able to sharpen jointer and planer knives. Unfortunately, it arrived loose in it’s box with no packing material and with some surpisingly minor damage, although the damage is to the extrusions the bearings ride on so it will require some straightening and removing the burs from the damage of hitting against the hardware. It seems unlike Grizzly to ship something without packing materials.

I’m somewhat dissapointed, right from the start, but when I examine this device closely, it seems like a poorly made Chinese item. I mean, really poorly made.

As best I can tell, even if I can get it back to operational condition, it’s not stable enough to grind the bevel flat enough for a planer.

Is it just mine? Does anyone have this item and find that it works well and is somewhat accurate?

I would like to mention I’m a big fan of Grizzly and love my bandsaw and other items. I’ve had problems before and their customer service has been really good. I have no doubt, they will try to help me with this but I suspect getting the jig into operational condition will yield a marginal piece. I have little doubt I will end up with the Tormach jig.
