Grinding jig

I modified my test jig with polypropylene bearing surface sourced from a Wal*Mart cutting board, held on with the motley assortment of bolts I had around the shop.  Slides much better without being too slick.

Shop Cat is so helpful...

Shop upgrade and test grinding

Been working on a new stand for my KMG to accommodate an extra-long work rest for jig grinding waterjet cut bush sword blanks.

This Little Rok is the first of my waterjet cut blanks to get ground on it.  Still a bit of tweaking on my process with the new setup, but I think I'm most of the way there.
