Attachments for bench grinders to help with the sharpening of your turning tools.
Robert Sorby produce a range of sharpening jigs which can be adapted for use with most dry grinders. All three models are illustrated, above.
445 Fingernail Profiler: An answer to all those prayers for help in producing an even and consistent fingernail grind on spindle and bowl gouges! Fully adjustable to enable both long and short profiles to be achieved and easily reset to pre-determined positions to make regrinds consistent. The clamp system will accept gouges ranging in diameter from 1/4" (6mm) to 3/4" (20mm).
446 Universal Sharpening System: A large, robust platform assembly of all-steel construction. Features captive spanners to lock the height and angle of the platform. Also includes an angle-finder to aid in setting up at the correct angle for the tool's bevel angle.
447 Deluxe Universal Sharpening System: A combination of the two devices detailed above. The fingernail profiler can be dropped back or the arm removed completely to give clear access to the flat platform for square-on grinding.
