Wood lathe chisel sharpening jig,kayak plans kits,bathroom sink base cabinet plans - Test Out
The thing that would make it so much better of course would be a Oneway Wolverine Sharpening Jig, but alas, finances being what they are, I couldn’t really ask Santa for that after getting the grinder.
And after a couple of hours of work and a bit of scrap wood, I put together a pretty nice looking jig for sharpening my chisels.
I cut and shaped some scrap cedar I had laying around to fit into the pocket, and make a proper V shape to it, so that the butt end of the chisel doesn’t move around laterally.
One of the things I had mentioned was a 8″ Slow Speed Grinder I had seen at Woodcraft (on sale no less) for sharpening lathe chisels.
The grinder will help me a lot as well, so I’m looking forward to some pretty lathe chisels, and more fun turning!
I put together a few pieces of scrap wood into something that worked out ok, but I think it needs some work. Then I made repeated passes till I had a nice V groove cut into the wood at the appropriate spots. The chisel has a little too much room to move around in, so I think I need to build another one, but for now it will work just fine.
