Wolverine Grinding Jig will save you time, frustration and money by allowing you to grind tools right the first time and every time. You'll create accurate cutting angles and straight edges in a fraction of the time it now takes and your tools will be easier and safer to work with! The Wolverine system is furnished with two bases, one to mount under each wheel, which permit two simultaneous grinding set ups. Each base accepts either sliding arm. Arms are effortlessly adjusted or secured by a cam locking device. The “V” arm attachment is 27" in length and is perfect for sharpening gouges, skews, chisels, or carving tools. Just pull the arm out until the tool rests on the wheel at the proper angle and you're ready to start. The 3" x 5" platform jig uses quick release ratchet handles for angle adjustments and is perfect for sharpening scrapers. Wolverine comes complete with instructions for installation and use.

Wolverine Vari-grind Jig When turning coves, beads and other fine details, nothing beats a sharp fingernail profiled spindle gouge. For rapid internal hollowing or fast smooth external cuts on a bowl, nothing beats a side grind. However, because of the difficulty in producing these edges (both require rolling the tool edge and “swinging” the handle at the same time) most turners have never really enjoyed the benefits of a well ground gouge. Grinding difficult fingernail profiles on shallow spindle gouges and side grinds (also called Irish or long grinds) on deep fluted bowl gouges is quick and easy when you use the Vari-Grind Fingernail/Side Grinding Jig. The Vari-Grind combines the “roll and swing” motion into one easily controlled movement that results in an edge so perfect you'll be amazed at how easily you formed it! We recommend using the Wolverine Grinding Jig or any other “V” arm system with the Wolverine for maximum control and perfect, repeatable fingernail and side grinds.
