Includes a Veritas grinding jig, a Veritas grinder tool rest (with angle-setting gauge) and a 6" × 3/4" 80x white aluminum oxide grinding wheel. With this combination, you can easily do accurate grinding with utility bench grinders.
The Veritas grinding jig works with any power or hand grinder that has a tool rest. The back plate is offset for short chisels, such as Japanese or western butt chisels. The brass clamping bolts have nylon washers to prevent galling; other parts are made from hard aluminum, further hardened by anodizing to prevent wear. High-friction pads ensure solid clamping without inadvertent misalignment. (Fits most tool rests.)
The Veritas grinder tool rest can be used with 6" or 8" utility bench grinders and many belt sanders/grinders. It mounts directly to the bench in front of the grinder and can be readily folded out of the way for freehand grinding. Its 4" wide table straddles wheels up to 1" wide. It is grooved for sliding jigs and center drilled for rotating jigs. The slotted arms allow a wide range of angular and height adjustments. Spring-loaded gyratory handles lock it solidly in position and can be rotated out of the way after locking. You can easily move it from one grinder to another or quickly remove it from the bench. Accurately machined, anodized aluminum construction. It is completely compatible with the Veritas skew-grinding jig. Included is an angle-setting gauge to set the table to the common bevel angles of 20°, 25°, 30° and 35°.
The grinding wheel is aluminum oxide with a soft bond (grade H) and an open structure. It wears faster than a hard stone but will not burn tools as readily. It has a 1" arbor hole and four bushings (for 1/2", 5/8", 3/4" and 7/8" shafts). Maximum 3820 rpm.
