The Oneway Skew Jig accessory for the Wolverine grinding system was designed specifically for grinding Skew chisels. It is quick and easy to use, and will give you an amazingly flat bevel.
One reason that the skew leaves such an incredible finish on work pieces is due to its very thin edge which leaves naturally cleaner cuts. This creates a problem with sharpening the skew as this thin edge can easily fold over during grinding. Oneway's Skew Grinding Attachment minimizes this problem by allowing the skew to be mechanically held. The unique offset handle position actually reduces the hollow grind generated and leaves a stronger more predictable tool.
Very simply the jig is two pockets offset 3-1/2" to either side of centre of the wheel. When the handle of the skew is placed in these pockets, the cutting edge becomes square to the wheel. The bevel will also be flattened by the correct use of this jig, solving the problem of excessive hollow grind seen with many other jigs. The Skew Grinding Attachment produces a virtually flat bevel with greatly improved cutting characteristics.
This fixture is a highly recommended option with the Oneway Wolverine Grinding System.
