    Jig Instructions Lost

    Hello all I'm in need of some instructions that I have lost for this sharpening system Woodturning Chisel Sharpening Jigs - Full Sharpening System: Amazon.co.uk: DIY & Tools

    So I'm looking for a kind sole that has a similar one they would kindly scan and supply me with a copy in am saving dosh for a Axminister wet stone system Axminster Craft AC250WBS Wetstone Sharpening Machine | Axminster Tools but I'm a week or three off it yet and need to sharpen some of my chisels now.

    Hi James,
    I had the grinding stone kit and I cannot recall having any instructions with mine. You work out the angles by the long bar to the wheel stone. I found that the small grinding machines, left to much of a curve at the cutting edge. I did have some luck using a grinding wheel of 30cm in diameter, I have also the wet stone system, takes to long to grind and I found that not all angles on the chisel were correct.
    If you can afford it, get the Robert Sorby pro edge system. Expensive yes! but you will never go back to anything else. Every time the same ground angle on every piece, that's because its a flat edge, belts can be changed and it's not a turning stone wheel that's being worn down as you grind, creating a small grind angle on the face.

    I have the basic jig on a grinder to show students a cheap way of sharpening as well as the pro edges.
    It did have some info on angles with it that I can look out tomorrow.
    I can't decide whether to be a good example, or a horrible warning!

    Actually if you look at the pictures on the amazon site they show you most of the jigs and angles.
