The major weakness of most bench grinders is that the tool rests are virtually useless. It is nearly impossible to find one with a rest that is solid and square.
The Veritas Grinder Tool Rest can be used with 6" or 8" utility bench grinders and many belt sanders/grinders. It mounts directly to the bench in front of the grinder and can be readily folded out of the way for freehand grinding.
The 4" wide table straddles wheels up to 1" wide. It is grooved for sliding jigs and center drilled for rotating jigs. The slotted arms allow a wide range of angular and height adjustments. Spring-loaded gyratory handles lock it solidly in position and can be rotated out of the way after locking. You can easily move it from one grinder to another or quickly remove it from the bench.
Accurately machined, anodized aluminum construction. It is completely compatible with the Veritas grinding jig and skew-grinding jig.
Included is an angle-setting gauge to set the table to the common bevel angles of 20°, 25°, 30° and 35°.
Available as a set with our grinding jig.
