Homemade Ellsworth Sharpening Jig
Apr 29th, 2017 at 5:50pm
 
Having some steel box left over from the previous project this week, used it up making a jig for sharpening my gouges.

After looking at a few youtube vids of homemade Ellsworth jigs, I decided to have a go at making one for myself. Only cost a few bob on materials, surplus steel from a previous project. Spent more time than money on this project, getting measurements right and cuts square (ish) but hopefully will pay off!

Made from 30mm & 25mm light gauge steel box, 1 1/4" angle, M 8 gutter bolts and nuts. Still have to cut the holder for the gouges. All the parts welded up ready for polishing and then spraying. Will post again when I've sprayed and then assembled.

Finally got my jig finished today. Made the gouge holder at 45* though when welded its a bit more like 43*. Made a second holder and that's at roughly 60* I think. I've yet to try out the new grinds, will make templates for the various grinds to make setting up quick and repeatable. Happy enough the way they turned out, all from off cuts from a previous project.

Will do. Have been busy in the garden and painting with all this fine summer weather we are having here in the west of Ireland!
