Sharpen your tools quickly and precisely with the help of the BGM-100 bench grinder mounting set from Tormek. This set enables you to mount any of three Tormek woodturning jigs to your bench grinder: the SVD-185 gouge jig, the SVS-50 multi jig (for skew chisels), or the SVD-110 tool rest. You can mount it to either side of your grinder, and rubber feet add stability and reduce vibration.
Benefits of Mounting a Jig onto Your Bench Grinder Doing the initial shaping of a tool is often faster on a bench grinder. However, it can be difficult to control the tool by hand, and it's easy to accidentally remove more steel than necessary. By attaching a Tormek jig to your bench grinder with this mounting set, you can sharpen your tools quickly but precisely, with greater control and more consistent results.
Simple, Flexible Installation You can mount the BGM-100 on either side of your bench grinder, and either to a wooden platform or directly to the bench--whichever best suits your needs. The mounting set is designed for grinders with wheel diameters between 6 inches and 10 inches, and your wooden platform must be at least 3/4-inch thick. Using the included rubber feet will give you steady performance with less vibration.
