I have found and made a simular jig out of wood and mounted it to my grinder. I am now in search to add to my arm. Perhaps you have came across a jig like this. It is based of a "Wovering" jig. I can use my arm that is pretruding down like yours, but intead of a v rest for the tool. It would be a piece of wood (or metal like yours) the piece wood be perpendicular to the arm and would mount to the arm like an upside down "T". There to 3 "V" mounts along that piece for positions to sharpen my skews on bothsides. I understand that bases but want to be sure on the measurements of where to place and how far apart to get the right angle for the grinder to met the tool. Any inquires would be very helpful.

If it is feasible to reverse the direction of rotation of your grinder (so the wheel is going "up" rather than "down" at its contact with the tool edge)., the danger from tool contact with the wheel will be greatly reduced

Switch62....I have to agree with what WULFV states, be very, very, careful. And if you have any younger kids that may use a grinder now and then, DO NOT let someone run this setup other than yourself. You yourself, knows the feel and such of the grinder, but if just per chance some freak thing happens and that chisel would happen to catch in the wheel, first off it will grenade the wheel, then what happens after that is anyone's guess. Hopefully you won't be in the way of pieces. I have a BIL that has a paralyzed arm, a speech impediment, and now uses a cane to walk due to a similar accident that happened and he was hit in the head.

Not wishing to take away from your nice work but I would be VERY concerned about using a fixture that has potential of catching (and exploding) the wheel. Imagine what will happen when (not if) the chisel catches a tiny imperfection in the wheel....? Please be very very careful.
