Posted a link for folks that have never seen this system. Kind of expensive but if helps you achieve what you want go for it!

I have no problem using basic wolverine system & vari grind jig getting different bevels and degrees on my bowl & spindle gouges.

I checked out the site and discovered the Robust, “Sweet 16” lathe. I never heard of it before, but I fell in love with it. It looks like a 1st class piece of machinery and made in the USA to boot. Unfortunately, I don’t do a whole lot of wood turning, but if I did, that lathe would be on the top of my list despite it’s hefty price tag.

Have your say...
