Wolverine Platform Kit
We’ve taken one of the Wolverine’s standard bases and platforms to create a kit for sharpening chisels and plane blades using an ordinary grinder. The base attaches to the bench underneath the grinder and features Wolverine’s system of adjustment so distance from base to the stone is easily set. If you would like to increase the versatility of your grinder this is one of the best accessories you can own. Some assembly required.
Wolverine Dressing Attachment. Used with the Wolverine bases, this wheel dressing attachment removes glazing and produces clean, truly round wheels quickly and easily. The precise adjustment knob allows you to remove as little as .002" per pass over the grinding wheel. Not illustrated.
Wolverine Vari-Grind 2 Produce and maintain prefect fingernail, and side grind, profiles on spindle and bowl gouges. The new Vari-Grind 2 offers "side restrained action" to keep the tool safely centered on the wheel, eliminating the chance for slipping of the wheel's edge. Sharp, consistent profiles are easy because the tool rotates about the center of the adjusting rod allowing maximum flexibility, not only in matching a profile but also in creating your own. Available with or without the base.
After fiddling around with the base, I found that there was a way to take it apart and put it back together for the right side wheel. There's a 1/8" hex screw holding the handle to a oblong cam wheel that fits in the tube. When you take the screw out, the handle comes out, the wheel comes out, and there's a third piece that's in a recess inside the tube. Take that piece out, put it in the hole inside the tube at the other end, put the cam wheel back in, insert the handle and put the hex screw back in. It's a little fiddly, but not a big deal.
Somewhat misleading item - Caveat emptor
Take care ordering this item. It fits ONLY on the left wheel of a grinder. You can't flip it around to use it on the other side. It's not symmetrical - maybe that's why the company is called "oneway?" (just kidding.) The instructions say "the front of the base should be flush to the front of the grinding wheel." The only way to make that happen is to have the red locking handle on the base towards the front of the grinder. If you have it the other way around, it won't line up with the wheel. When ordering, there doesn't seem to be a way to indicate left/right side, nor is there another individual item for the right side base - that I can find anyway.
