    I purchased this system after failing to sharpen my turning tools by free hand on my 8″ grinder, it was a little pricy, but just like another reviewer, I spend around $40 to sharpen them, so it will pay for itself in just a few sharpening sessions. The system does work very well, but I want to share my experiences on mounting the system in this review. I chose to build a small table that would hold the system and nothing else, so I choose a (larger than needed) 20″ x 30″ area to mount it on. I purchased the basic system and added the diamond dresser and the skew attachment, I must have not looked at the pictures very closely and mounted the grinder and the clamping attachments in the middle of the table. Everything fit with the exception of the diamond dresser, it needs the system to be on the edge of the work surface, I finally decided to move everything to the edge, after spending many hours getting it mounted perfect in the middle of the table, and that did the trick, all the tools will now work with the wolverine. I did also find that to attain the required 6.5″ needed from the table top to the middle of the gringing wheel, can be attained using a 3/4″ or 1″ piece of material, 1″ of material will bring it to the max of 6.5″. Mounting the clamping device required it to be placed flush with the frount of the wheel and on the centerline of the wheel. I used a square and held it up from the table to the wheel and that gave me the edge mark. to find the centerline of the wheel I used the square again, marked the center of the wheel, placed the square up against the mark and transferred it to the table top. Finally I’m not sure if the directions told you what size of wood screws to use with the clamping devices, but I used a #10 wood screw and it fit perfectly, 3 on each side (I did find that the middle screw hole is centered on the grinder wheel, so getting it in with the grinder attached will be a challange, I had to remove the grinder to get the middle screws in on both sides. Hope this helps anyone in their setup, thanks OneWay for a great system, and Amazon for a great price.

    Very much easier than doing it by hand. Using the jig has changed my mind about hand grinding. A few degrees here and there adds up and sometimes really changes a tool! With this jig you can have a super sharp tool and the results are the same over and over with little time invested and without grinding off a lot of the tool.

    I have been using this system for a month or so now and love it. It makes sharpening skews and gouges a snap, and allows me to do so with less time grinding so my tools will last longer.

    It was quite easy to set up, I just made a riser block out of 3/4″ plywood for my grinder and then the 8″ wheels of my grinder easily cleared the brackets for the jig. Aligning the brackets was easy as well.

    Using this system made it much easier to grind my own tools from HSS bar stock. I made a round skew and a pyramid point tool, and while they could be made using the standard grinder tool rests, using this jig made the whole process much easier.
