  • The included Quad Setup Jig helps you correctly set the proper grinding angles for Roughing Gouges at 45 deg, Parting Tools at 30-60 deg, Skews at 21.5-43 deg and Bowl Scrapers at 8 deg. Its called the “Quad Setting Jig” since one jig sets the correct angles for all 4 of the other HSS woodturning lathe tools. The Quad Setting Jig is designed to be used with 8” bench grinders.
  • Carpenter chisels up to 1-1/4″ wide can be sharpened using the Wolverine’s Vee-Arm. The arm is adjusted to set the bevel, and the chisel can be ground with small sideways motions and light cutting pressure. Three or four strokes on a strop will generate a razor sharp edge. The Wolverine Grinding Jig comes with a 3 x 5 inch adjustable platform which allows even large scrapers to be ground with ease.
  • Parting tools are sharpened using the platform. Laying it flat on its side on the platform gives a slight hollow grind which is very desirable for clean parting. The Wolverine’s Vee arm can be used to sharpen skews, but a far superior method is ONEWAY’s Skew Grinding Attachment (not included). With a finely dressed 80 or 120 grit wheel, even very small carving tools can be superbly ground using the standard Vee-Arm.
