Introducing - Quad-Setting-Jig For Wood Lathe Tools



Thank you for your overwhelming support of my new Universal Setting Jig for use in sharpening your spindle and bowl gouges which I introduced earlier in the week. I am thrilled at the response. Details below in case you missed it.


Many of you asked about the other side of the grinder, the platform. You wanted to know if I had something which would enable the same kind of accuracy in sharpening the “4 Other Tools”. So, I came up with a jig to use to correctly set the proper grinding angles for Roughing Gouges, Parting Tools, Skews & Bowl Scrapers. I’ve named it the “Quad Setting Jig”, since one jig sets the correct angels for all 4 of the other HSS woodturning lathe tools. It is also available for immediate shipment.


These are supposed to be thumbnails. You should be able to click on each photo to enlarge it. I you have difficulty go here.

Using the Quad Setting Jig is simple and easy. Locate the name of the tool you wish to sharpen on the jig. Loosen the platform and move it away from the grinding wheel far enough to adjust. Place the flat part of the jig on the platform table. Adjust the table and the arm until both points are in contact with the wheel. Tighten the table and the arm. Sharpen accurately and repeatably every time.

I’ll see you at SWAT in Waco, Texas Aug. 21-23, 2015.

For those of you in the Southeast, don’t forget about Turning Southern Style XXI September 18-20, 2015. I will be there as a vendor for sure, but I have also been asked to do a rotation on Fancy Christmas Ornaments and Fancy Finials.
