Ted Moore Grinding Jig

I recently posted pics of my enlarged workrest (see "Enlarged KMG Workrest Pics" a few threads down). One of the pics showed the grinding jig I have which was made by Ted Moore.
In response to that posting, I recieved many e-mails/inquiries about Ted's jig.

Ted sent me pics of his Grinding Jig (now improved) and asked me to post them. The biggest improvement I can see appears to be a real good one...The fixture on the front side which holds the tip of the blade in place...simple, elegant solution.






I know that Ted makes these available for sale...
You can contact him through his website:

Thumbs up

I like that, Dennis. Very well thought out and versatile. I grind freehand, but that little jig would really come in handy on a dagger like you have in the picture. It obviously would keep both bevels more uniform.

Dennis,

Looks like it grinds edge down?! Isn't that sacrilege?

Does that work OK? Obviously from your work I know it does! Just puzzled on what's that like.

Steve

Let me qualify please...these are NOT my pics...and that is NOT my grind...although I "wouldn't kick that one out of bed!"

I've yet to use mine...(Mine was an early prototype which is going back to Ted's to be swapped for the upgrade).

As to how it grinds...why not grind as usual with edge up? It's no different than holding in your hands. When you need to do the other side, just flip the blade around and attach to the other side. BTW-That adjustable bolt in the back raises the back end up...not down!


Dennis Greenbaum

Yeah Baby!

I got a block of Oak that would work real well for that.
Are those little wheels on the side or does that one ride on carriage rails???

Ok, now Im confused!

Are those dowl pins there for the photo?
Or are they part of the jig?

Are the milled slots in the bottom for a rail type system?

Thanks

Mike

the jig is a free hand jig the reason for the pins is to allow the jig to slide across the table easily I know this jig is so simple that most people think this needs to be more complicated than it is , but if you think of it as a fulcrum or sine plate it is simple ,Ted

NICE ELEGANT FIXTURE

Nice simple fixture design (I really like simple), it is amazing how something simple can be overlooked when building fixtures. I guess I should not use the word ?simple? as it may appear that I am belittling and this is a GREAT looking fixture. I will use elegant, that is a good word, simple and classy. NICE ELEGANT FIXTURE. Inspiring to the point that I may try something similar.

Ted, I just looked at your site. I love the blued blade. Nice work on the white MOP in the gallery, as well.


Thank you for the photos and the post. I need to figure a way to see every new post in <15 min a day, this one almost got past me.
