    Sears Grinder/Wolverine jig

    I am in the process of buying a Sears 6" variable speed grinder. The base of the grinder measures approximately 10 3/4". Has anyone run into problems mounting the jig mounts under the wheels with the base that wide, per instuctions from One-Way.

    Yep I have a Sears grinder that I couldn't use so I just use it for other sharpening of garden tools. I just couldn't make it fit. I would go for a 8" if you can. It makes mounting a lot easier as you have to use a block to mount it so the 6" will work.

    What 8" grinder are you thinking about- craftsman variable speed or one speed grinder?

    I have a Delta 3k rpm that I converted to 8". Just made some guards from Lowes aluminium sheet. 80g on one side and 100g n the other.

    John either would do as long as the base will accommodate the jig.
