A jig for grinding bevels on flat-tanged blades. This can be used on a variety of grinders but has been tested extensively with our wraparound table.

This is a steel-bodied jig with a replaceable plastic insert, which will flex to firmly grip a wide range of tangs from less than 1- 3.2mm it will grip tapered tangs as well. This is a more durable version of our wooden-bodied jig and has been tested in a production environment for the last 12 months.

The plastic insert is not resistant to heat so care must be taken not to overheat the blade it is gripping. In practice, if a blade has been heat treated then as long as you keep it below tempering temperatures (which you would be aiming to do) it is unlikely enough heat will be transferred down the tang of the blade to damage the plastic.

Always grind with a finger against the tang of the blade, if it is too hot to be comfortable cool the blade in water before continuing, this is most likely to be an issue if roughing bevels quickly on a blade.

There is an option to buy this jig with a spare plastic insert, however in the year we have been testing these doing production grinds we have yet to melt one so whilst it is an option it shouldn’t be necessary.
