I just recently moved my article on a home made sharpening jig to my other site.  It had originally been posted to my blog, but I have been moving all the articles over to my woodworks site.

The article is here:

It's been working quite well for me, and is a similar design to the already posted.

hope that helps.

Badger,
Well done, I'll point some of my club members who like to make their own jigs to your site.

Glad to help. 

It certainly helped my turning to have a sharp chisel at hand.

Happy New Year!

Yesterday I built a sharpening jig combining the two jigs above.  Thanks for posting them guys!

The base is very similar to Badger's.  I used leftover plywood and and oak in my shop.  Badger's write-up is very good.

I built the arm more like the Taunton jig though with some modification.  The height of the "step" does match the 4" vertical distance from the center of the wheel    However, I put the v-notch in the upper step where the dimple is shown.  I think the fingernail jig could be used in the v-notch just fine.

I still need to build a skew arm and fingernail jig, but I think those will be straightforward enough.  One question since I haven't done the trig yet - is the 3.5" offset for the skew arm in Badger's design  pretty much standard?  In my mind, that dimension should vary based on the overall length of the skew and the angle of the skew grind, but maybe it doesn't vary enough to matter.

one note about the fingernail jig that i discovered when i was using mine.....when u make the block that slips over the tool shaft ...put the holding bolt at the botton so it tightens on the ROUND part of the tool shaft not in the flute.
If you let it tighten in the flute you will not be able to rotate the tool in the holder to it lines up on the wheel correctly.
when u first make the jig and set it up for the tool ...take a black marker and color all the cutting edge that will hit the wheel...set the tip of the tool out about 2" and lock it down...lay the tip on the well and rotate the wheel by hand 1 full revolution...now look at the tip ..there should be a scratch mark from top to bottom ..if not then move the v arm in or out whatever is needed.
next lay the tool over on the left side or right whatever u prefer....do the same with the wheel ..i full turn ..look at the mark...if more on top then rotate the tool in the holder to the right or left just a little to get the full mark ...if u have the hold down bolt in the flute you cant do that ...so install it on the bottom.

Hi Bob & Badger. Great jigs for sharpening for those of us with more time than money. I made my own slow speed grinder though, by using a motor from 1 hp motor from a band saw and mounted that to a table with a belt going to an 8 inch v wheel and took the switch from the bandsaw to mount on the table edge. It turns very slowly on the 8 inch wheel, but I can switch the belt to a six inch wheel mounted next to the 8 inch and get a faster speed. It has kept me from burning my tool edges plus with a laminated cardboard wheel I can hone the edge with polishing compound.

I would also be interested in seeing your setup sounds interesting ....i use a  1 inch belt sander with a home made wolverine type setup most of the time...i get tired of chasing the pos grinder on the bench ...it vibrates everything off onto the floor most of the time and the sander gives me a nice sharp edge.

Thanks Bob.  I printed your comments so I will keep them in mind once I build it.
