    Sharpening jig blocks

    I find it much easier to use jigs for sharpening so I made these blocks for some recent tools. The rectangular block is for my 10mm round skew, the large triangular block is for my 1/2" point tool and the smaller one for a 1/4" detail tool.



    M6 set screws hold the tools in place whilst sharpening.

    For me there is one clear picture of three versions one on each tool, just how do you apply these in the process?

    All tools are firmly held in place in the blocks with a set screw. For the skew chisel you place the block on the grinding table and grind the first face then flip the block 180 to grind the second face. Same idea with the triangular blocks, just grind each face in turn with the flat of the block on the grinding table. After I made these I did do a search on YouTube and found a couple of folks that hot glue the tool inside a couple of hex nuts to do the same kind of thing.
