I just used the instructions that came with it Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register
IMO they are very straight forward instructions and diagrams.
Is there something in particular you're concerned about?

I had a good suggestion passed along to me ... make the centerline of the grinder the same elevation as the centerline of your lathe.  Sharpening will be much like turning - the result "can" be a better edge - I actually just found it to be not awkward... which I suppose could result in a better edge, but with a sharpening system ... this advantage is less.

BE SAFE!

Thanks guys  for the advice - and yes Ed I read the brochure/instructions - it advocated the centerline , and I was going to tell you that I couldn't figure out where to align the front edge  and after rereading it I think I finally caught the part where the front should be aligned with the front edge of the wheel- thanks!

Also make sure the V in the arm is in the center of the Wheel.  DAMHIKT

I had mine 1.5" off until Lyle Jamieson came and helped me out and did some teaching to me and another vet while he was here.  I was blessed that he came two other times and Jimmy Clews paid me a personal visit also.  Thumbs Up

O and one other thing is Lyle gave me one of his 2" plastic blocks so when I put the tool in the Varigrind jig and pushed the tool up to the face of his block and the jig up to that I get the exact same grind every time and Yes I use the Irish grind at 60 degrees and use it for almost everything.

One other thing he gave me is two blocks that are 10 degrees and 15 degrees which you put in the V block and it is for detail or spindle gouges and you do the same thing as the bowl gouge I told you about just put in the block and you get a great angle detail gouge.

He gave me both of his DVDs so if you wish to borrow them just send me a PM with your mailing address.

One thing I missed on my initial installation of the Oneway system was the removal of the rubber mounts under the grinder.  It does make a difference and well worth the time and effort it takes to do so.
