I’ve got the Wolverine sharpening system but want to try the Ellsworth on a bowl gouge. I’ve found “Mickey & Jed’s” Ellsworth to Wolverine Jig online and will build it but they the tool holder looks to be bought. My question is will the Wolverine holder work with this jig, if i make sure that I’m getting a 60 degree bevel on the tool or will I need to find a homemade tool holder also?

If you have the Wolverine V-arm attachment see no problem people been using it and Ellsworth jig for years. Personally think Wolverine Vari-Grind jig a better op than Ellsworth jig because adjustability and only few more dollars to buy.

My old Wolverine vari-grind jig does not have the notches and had to update the tighten knob year or so ago.

Think Capt Eddie has plans for his version of the Ellsworth jig on his web site.
