Wolverine jig on Shopsmith

#259004 by larryhrockisland » Fri Apr 19, 2019 11:39 pm

Got a Wolverine sharpening jig set up on my MarkV and got a CBN wheel. I will get a regular 8" wheel for rough grinding on the left side. I still need to come up with something to protect the waytubes. I clamp the wood bases so they don't slide and everything is solid. The left hand jig is notched deeper and will work on my 10ER also. I am still learning to use the Wolverine vary grind set up and I'm very happy with my infinitely variable speed grinder :D Thank you Shopsmith!
Cheers!

Tell us more about that mechanical + electric speed controller :)

I use a Power Pro with the strip sander for a lot of basic blade grinding. Yes, slow speed capability is a real boon to working without overheating.

Nice setup!

Which of the mandrels are you using for the CBN wheel

Thanks
An electric speed controller would be nice but it is a digital tach I got from Skip at MKC Tools. Sorry no breakthrough invention here :D :D

I did this same sort of set up a few years back, the thread is here:

viewtopic.php?f=5&t=17740&p=205543&hilit=Wolverine#p205543

I had a few minor issues with this and finally went to a conventional grinder with the set up. Just a bit more convenient to have this way for me but it was an interesting experiment.
