A major weakness in most bench grinders is an unstable or inadequate tool rest which in most cases is not square or easily adjustable. The Veritas® Tool Rest mounts solidly to your bench in front of the grinder and provides a sturdy, square support that can be folded out of the way for free hand grinding operations. The 4"-wide tool rest may be used with 6" or 8" grinders and can straddle wheels up to 1" wide. It also works well as a tool rest for belt sanders. When combined with the Veritas® Grinding Jig (available separately), straight edge accuracy is virtually assured.
