When turning coves, beads and other fine details, nothing beats a sharp fingernail profiled spindle gouge. For rapid internal hollowing or fast smooth external cuts on a bowl, nothing beats a side grind. However, because of the difficulty in producing these edges (both require rolling the tool edge and “swinging” the handle at the same time) most turners have never really enjoyed the benefits of a well ground gouge. Grinding difficult fingernail profiles on shallow spindle gouges and side grinds (also called Irish or long grinds) on deep fluted bowl gouges is quick and easy when you use the new Vari-Grind Fingernail/Side Grinding Jig. The Vari-Grind combines the “roll and swing” motion into one easily controlled movement that results in an edge so perfect you''ll be amazed at how easily you formed it! We recommend using the Wolverine Grinding Jig or any other “V” arm system with the Wolverine for maximum control and perfect, repeatable fingernail and side grinds.
