I bought a Veritas bench grinder tool rest and guide. I've spent a few hours messing with it and for the most part I am well pleased (definitely an improvement over my shop-made setup). My question to those of you that use this system, is there a more straightforward method of setting the grinding angle? Has anyone constructed a carriage device to allow moving from grinding to honing without removing the tool being sharpened from the guide? (That may be too far out....) Finely, any tips or tricks for using this system?
Many thanks! -Jerry
