Introduction to Sharpening
Since ONEWAY's establishment, designers have devoted much time to the research and development of products that allow woodturners to more easily sharpen and maintain their tools.
Professional turners have two distinct advantages over the hobbyist turner when it comes to sharpening tools:
ONEWAY has a simple four step program to make your grinder work more efficeintly and your tools look and behave the way they should.
ONEWAY's Grinding System creates very little dust through wheel wear. It is our belief, proven by research, that a standard ½ to 1 horse power bench or pedestal grinder with balanced and dressed eight (8) inch aluminum oxide wheels is the fastest and most economical way to achieve absolutely superb cutting edges.
Sharpening tools is a skill which takes many hours of practice. If a professional turner doesn't use a grinding jig doesn't mean it can't be an invaluable asset to the hobbyist.
Anyone including professionals can (and will) benefit from a good grinding jig.
"...next to a solid lathe and a good set of tools, the Wolverine Grinding Jig by Oneway is the best investment an amateur or occasional turner can make."
I am a cabinet maker for a commercial shop in Raleigh, North Carolina. I turn wood at home, just for fun. I have wanted to buy a sharpening jig set-up for my turning tools. I had quite a few choices! I was visiting your web site and discovered the instructional video downloads of the Wolverine. I watched the down loaded videos and was so impressed with the sharpening system, I bought a Wolverine Grinding Jig and a Vari-Grind. That was last weekend. I liked the quality construction of all the components. I have not had time to set up the Wolverine on my grinder yet, but, I was so impressed with your product, still in the box, that today I went out and bought a Talon chuck! I was planning on mail-ordering a VicMarc VL100... but, after seeing the quality of the Wolverine and Vari-Grind, I knew your chucks would perform as advertised. I have used the Talon for a few hours this afternoon and love it. I will definately buy other Oneway products. I felt inspired to write this email because, it was the video downloads about using the Wolverine that started this chain of events.
Thank you for the quality products.
