Grind consistent bevel angles every time
Use this to accurately calibrate the angles of your sharpening jig table.
The dial does not show the angle of the bevel but enables you to reproduce the exact angle you have ground previously. Once you have established the ideal bevel angle you need, place the gauge on the table and record the number shown on the dial. Next time you want to grind that tool use the guage to get back to the same angle.
- Magnetic base holds it firm on (steel) jig tables
- Clear dial with 1 degree divisions
- Easy to use
The picture below shows the guage on the table of the Robert Sorby 447 jig. It works well on this jig and the magnetic base of the guage makes it simple to use. However the pivot point of the pivoting table must be returned to the same position if you move it. Otherwise you will not get a consistent reading on the guage. The guage will only work with jig tables that pivot - it will be no good with tables that rise and fall like the Michael O'Donnell jig.
