Topic tags/keywords: jig question

Does anybody have a list of settings for spindle gouge sharpening with WS3000 and theTormek SVD-185 (I actually have the 186 model)? The chart that came with my tool bar attachment only lists bowl gouges. I guess I don’t know how to translate the Tormek settings. I am new to wood lathes and and sharpening gouges, although I did use a wood lathe in high school shop but that was 43 years ago. I am lucky to remember what I had for lunch yesterday lol.

If you are looking for the bevel angle, most spindle gouges are ground to 40-degrees.

Maybe this will help … https://www.tormek.com/media/448711/hb-10-en-v101-svd-185.pdf

So the JS of 2 is 45 degrees (according to Tormek chart) and P55 is tool stick out and 55mm is 2.165 inches. I don’t have a Work Sharp set up gage right here but I should use what ever tool stick out is close to 2.165 then? I like to think I’m not a complete idiot but when I went try this I just drew a blank. So of course for one to completely humiliate himself it to be done on a public forum.

I have the SVD-185 & 186 (worth the upgrade) that I use with a Grizzly wet sharpener. These are designed to work with the TTS-100 which sets the bar distance from the stone and has a tool distance setter for 55mm, 65mm, 75mm. The charts in the instructions also list A or B, which relates to one of 2 holes in the TTS-100 to set bar distance. I’m GUESSING the TTS-100 could be used on a worksharp by getting the 2 wheels flat on the abrasive. 3 things work together to make the jigs work – JS (the angle of the jig), tool extension, and distance of the bar from the stone.
