Step 8: Future Additions

I've been using the jig for several months now and it works very well.  You still have to be careful of the final shape of the chisel but it is easier than doing it free hand.  Sharpening the skew is a little harder but the jig helps a lot.  At least the angles at the cutting edge of the chisels are consistent and correct.

I would like to make a grinding table for use on the other side of the grinder and doing scrapers and parting tools.  I have most of the design but haven't finalised it yet.

I also want to make a wheel dressing jig.  I have the diamond dresser and at the moment dress the wheel by hand.
<p>Nice jig ,well thought out I'm new to wood turning but have always ground my own drills and chisels buy eye.will have ago at this would possibly but a adjustable support to ajust the angle of chisel one flat and one curved,for round chisels</p>
Nicely done. You might find Captain Eddie interesting,http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5i9RDnJHz9g
Very very impressive.... I just finished my lathe sharpening center with the wolverine system. before I did that though I was using a shop made wood version that gave inconsitant results especially with a six inch wheel.. <br> <br>You have done a FINE job on this Great job! <br>
Interesting, thanks for sharing.
It is nice isn't it?I just picked up <a href="http://i.imgur.com/ieMSq.jpg" rel="nofollow">another grinder</a> this weekend. It needs some work. I am loosening it all up with my PB Blaster.
Those old motors are stronger than present. <br> <br>You remind me that I have to replace my WD40, thanks.
I'm sure if you spend all kinds of money you can still get nice motors today. The good old ones can be a lot cheaper. $5 for that one. I just took the arbors off of it today and wire wheeled the rust off of them. Now I have to take the rest of it apart, clean it, and paint it. I run a dude workshop where everything has to be nice, dude!<br><br>I bet you could brew up a better penetrating oil than WD-40. Then write an Instructable about it!
Very good initiative that of restore and beautify the old engine. <br> <br>No, for me WD40 is the summum! Surely developers had earn a lot of money, they deserve it. One of the great ideas of WD40 was to give it a pleasant smell.
I have the grinder painted now so I figured I'd give you an updated picture of it:<br> <br> <a href="http://i.imgur.com/nj6Lj.jpg" rel="nofollow">http://i.imgur.com/nj6Lj.jpg</a><br> <br> I still have to wire it back up.
Nice motor!
I need to make something like the tool rests in this article for it. I also need to figure out where I am going to set it up. I am getting a little crowded here.
I have the motor all apart and am cleaning it up now to paint.<br><br>One thing PB Blaster isn't is good smelling. It used to be worse though.
Do you have any ideas on how to sharpen skew chisels? I could use an oil stone freehand but currently I'm not skilled enough for that.
great instructable, ingenious idea!
Perfect ! &acirc;€&brvbar; <br>Thanks for sharing !&acirc;€&brvbar;
