Ron Brown's Best Gouge Setup Blocks

It Only Takes Two

Two Ron Brown's Best Gouge Setup Blocks

will set the correct arm angle for sharpening 4 HSS wood turning gouges.






The Setup Blocks shown in black are included with my ProGrind Sharpening System. They are not available separately. The yellow Setup Blocks work exactly the same as the black ones but are available individually. The yellow ones have been modified to work with the OneWay Wolverine Varigrind #1 gouge grinding fixture used for bowl and spindle gouge sharpening. The yellow Setup Blocks are milled from HDPE and are extremely durable.
