    Thank you Jon, that is a very nice offer. Just happens that I have had my eye on rossbotics Universal Grinding Fixture Plans.
    Looks to be the perfect size for my little grinder and would be a great addition to my shop.

    Thanks again, JR

    Nice Job JR! Is that taper attachment part of your Sherline equipment or did you make that too?

    Hi PJ, the method I used for the taper was just to use the rear mounted compound slide with the inverted tool bit. Worked like a champ. The compound was purchased as part of the Sherline lathe kit.

    Cheers, JR
