Sharpening jig for turning chisels


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.
