I have a Jet slow speed sharpening system (just got it) The Jig that allows you to sharpen like spindle gouge, you know it has a pointer that sticks down into a v and you roll the tool. The Jet is so slick and shinny I have a hard time keeping it from slipping out of the V pocket.
Before I modify it I though I'd see if anyone had one of these and what I might be doing wrong.
Man it get tools scary sharp. I have a home made wolverine for quick fixes but to straighten them out and get that hair cut edge I know I'll be using this a lot.
It ticks me off they don't make a users manual. They have a great DVD but who wants to load that every time you want a refresher.
What you get is a very deal tailed parts manual.
It has many advantages over the Tormeck and believe me i'm not knocking the Tormek it will do anything this will, but the torque adjustment and variable speed are water tray are nice features on the Jet.
I was told you can down load a user manual from Tormek that is basically the same thing as the Jet, it 8.50. I went to do that but they want the ser # off the Tormek which I don't have of coarse.
