    Comments about Tormek Universal Gouge Jig :

    Product is good. Complete lack of instructions is disapointing. I did fine a youtube video that showed much of what I wanted to know. VERY VERY hard to use without the Turning Tool Setter (a $33.00 piece of plastic) and you won't find any indication on this web page that you should buy the Turning Tool Setter with this jig. Could be a very good tool, but as sold, by itself, is not particularly usefull, and it is misleading that you are not told what you need to purchase.

    Comments about Tormek Universal Gouge Jig :

    I use this on my Grizzly slow speed grinder. It fit it perfectly. The instructions are lacking to say the least. I watched youtube videos to understand how to set it up for gouges. But after it was set up it worked great. My tools have never been as sharp and a perfect bevel all the way around. Who needs experience, ha! This definitely works like it is suppose to. You do not have to buy the measuring device but it helps for precision.

    An Extremely Flexible Jig

    By  maui_bob

    from Potomac, MD

    About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer

    Pros

    • Very flexible design

    Cons

    • Poor documentation
    • Requires careful setup

    • Sharpening

    Comments about Tormek Universal Gouge Jig :

    The jig works extremely well and as described but requires some mental gyrations to intially setup (several degrees of freedom). Documentation is pretty poor, but for out of the box operation, the tried and true technique of marking the bevel with an indelible marker works well. The TTS-100 (turning tool setter) is a valuable adjunct for rapid use of the jig in more production settings. In general, a very nicely made and useful tool.

    Comments about Tormek Universal Gouge Jig :

    I tried to shape and sharpen gouges on a dry grinder and on my Tormek by hand. I never could get any consistency and it took awhile. The Universal Gouge Jig for the Tormek is very easy to set up with the proper tools and easy to achieve consistent sharp edges.
