Discover Cool Grinding!

Imagine sharpening your tools on a smooth spherical, compound-curved, surface. This is precisely the surface produced on your grinding wheels when using our:

 Tru N Dress Grand Slam and Crowning tool rest. Few people have experienced this, but I encourage you to try it. It is truly a unique experience.

To get an understanding of the resulting surface, I refer you to the drawing to the left. It is as if you took a 1" wide slice out of an 8" sphere.

What are the benefits? 

1) Significant heat can be generated when grinding metals on aggregate based (stone) wheels. Heat can have an adverse effect, especially on tools. Some tool steels should not be quenched in water. When tools contact the flat surface of grinding wheel, a great amount of friction is created producing heat. When a tool contacts a spherical surface the contact is minute and narrowly focused, thus minimizing the friction and producing less heat.

2) Many tools such as plane irons, chisels, woodturning Skews etc. have straight edges. When refreshing the bevels on straight edges on a grinding wheel with a flat surface, if the position of the tool wavers even the slightest bit, the edge of the wheel will cut a groove in the edge of the tool. This requires reestablishing the edge, wasting valuable time and tool steel. The surface produced by the Grand Slam and Crowning tool rest results in about 1/64" high crown on the wheel, which allows for some variation in the position of tools, reducing the risk of damaging the tool, such as described above.

If you are interested in accurate and repeatable results when sharpening bowl gouges, check out our very-popularEvolution sharpening system.

The gouge on the right is sharpened with a 60-degree bevel in the Irish/Ellsworth style grind. A very universal grind for the outside of Hollow forms and bowls and the inside of bowls.

The gouge above left is sharpened with the same style grind, but has a 70-degree micro-bevel and a 50-degree relief grind. A perfect tool for making very smooth inside finishing cuts on bowls.

The Evolution also supports sharpening a 40-degree bowl gouge (left).

and a spindle grind (not pictured).

Check out our Evolution system here.

Evolution system for Var-Grind users, with two stop collars.

The latest A/B Vari-Grind pre-set gauge expands the capabilities to include sharpening a 40 degree bowl gouge.


Robust Nitrided bowl gouge (left). Premium M2 HSS subjected to a proprietary metallurgical process for a much longer-lasting edge and superior chip ejection. 

When only the best is acceptable: Robust gouges fit the bill!

Users also like the flat surface behind the flute which allows the gouge fit into a jig and sharpened all the way back to the end of the flute.

Unlike many other gouges, the flat surface behind the flute allows the gouge be fitted into a jig further back. A better value for the money!

All gouges are IN-STOCK!

The Evolution system, left, includes a 2-position preset gauge for setting the position of the variable arm on a Var-Grind jig.

Only $80


The Evolution system, right, is for use with an Ellsworth jig, thus does not include a pre set gauge for a Vari-Grind.

Only $65


Watch this video on the Evolution:

Important Note: This video is a bit out of date and will be replaced soon. We now provide a nicely machined and engraved Aluminum Gauge Block, instead of the wooden one shown. And the Wooden Vari-Grind Pre-Set Gauge now has two-positions instead of just one, as shown.
