    Sharpening Jig for gouges

    Here is my sharpening jig for gouges (either woodturning or carving)





    It is a "Tormek" like model, for the wet grinder.
    I keep a paper sheet with all the different set ups for my different gouges, so that I always sharpen them with the same angles.

    Nice work, Christophe. Even in making jigs, you creations exude a certain craftsmanship.

    HI, thanks for the compliment, but again, the model was not invented by me, I just made one with common metal profiles, some woodturning, and some brazing.
    I had previously a wooden version for the same Jig, I have to take photos to show it also.
    (It reminds me that in my sharpening box, I have also other interesting jigs, Pfffff ...)
