Multi-Purpose Sharpening Station

Upgrade your standard bench grinder into a sharpening workhorse. You’ll never have an excuse for using a dull tool again.

If you use your bench grinder for most of the sharpening chores in your shop, you may have found the standard tool supports somewhat lacking in, well, support. But turning your grinder into a capable sharpening machine with precision adjustments is as easy as building our grinder station. It’ll make previously difficult to accomplish sharpening jobs a breeze. The key to this sharpening station’s accuracy is a miter track and T-bar combination set that allows for adjustment in two directions. The aluminum-edged hardwood tool rest provides ample support and accepts a number of different hold-downs for various sharpening tasks. Building this platform for your grinder might just make it the most-used tool in your shop.
