1 1/4" skew ... ?
« on: June 20, 2010, 03:19:45 am »
Too wide for the closed seat on the SVD50.

Any tips?

Was wondering whether the clamp screw would be enough to hold it with no seat at all.
Cheers,  Ern

Yes it will, but you'll have to confirm that it is properly centered.

Cool.  Thanks Jeff.

Did it freehand on the platform last time.  Good, but not good enough for a skew sharpening/performance comp'n that's coming up Downunder.

I want to get both sides evenly hollow ground so I can hand hone on stones to 8000 JIS.  heheh.  Macho sharpening.  Keep it under your hat ;-}

Another easy option for the wide skew chisels that dont fit into the SVS-50 jig is to use your Square Edge Jig SE-76

You use the jig on the lower bar at the front of your Tormek.

Draw a pencil line square across the wheel then set up your skew chisel in the square edge jig with about 60mm protrusion.

Place the skew chisel and jig on the bar and set the top of the skew parralel to the line you have drawn on the wheel.

Now move the support bar in or out to get the bevel matching the wheel.

This can be a bit fiddly when you want to change over to dress the other side but is doable.

Another option is to radius the short side of the skew chisel so it fits into the SVS-50 jig, P&N and Hamlet fit but Robert Sorby with their square edges dont.
