    Skews are among the trickiest tools to use in turning without causing digs.

    To prevent digs, this jig allows you to grind a slight radius rather than a straight 20° skew. It can be used on just about any grinder; all you need to do is drill a 6.4mm (1/4in) hole in the tool rest (if required) to hold the base pin.

    The radius of the grind is determined by the amount the skew projects from the jig. After grinding one side, you flip the skew to the other side of the jig and repeat.

    The skew is clamped in position, which leaves both hands free to regulate grinding pressure and travel across the wheel.

    The pin is steel; otherwise, the jig is brass and anodized aluminum.

    This grinding jig works with any power or hand grinder that has a tool rest.

    Put a tool in the jig, slide it against the alignment pin and one clamping thumbscrew to square it, adjust the blade projection for bevel angle, and tighten in place. The tool is now held squarely in the jig at the chosen bevel angle. Slide the jig back and forth across the tool rest and stone face to sharpen the tool.

    The brass clamping bolts have nylon washers to prevent galling; other parts are made from hard aluminum, further hardened by anodizing to prevent wear. High-friction pads ensure solid clamping without inadvertent misalignment.

    The jig fits in the slot of the Veritas® Grinder Tool Rest (05-M-2301); the riding ledges adapt it to other tool rests.

    This honing compound, which took over two years to develop, is the most effective on the market.

    It is a blend of both chromium and aluminum oxide to give the best combination of cutting speed and fine finish. The bonding is formulated for ease of charging. It will adhere equally well to felt, leather or wood.

    Cuts quickly but it leaves a mirror finish with a light wax film. The average size of scratch pattern it leaves behind is 0.5 microns or 0.00002in. Ideal for carving tools and firmer gouges, it can be used for final honing of almost any tool. Used with a felt wheel or leather belt for power honing or with a leather strop for hand honing.

  • The key to consistent and fast honing is repeatability – and this guide delivers it in spades. Whether you're a sharpening veteran or just starting out, this versatile guide lets you concentrate on sharpening without worrying about controlling blade angle at the same time. This makes your honing reliable, accurate and consistent.

    The original standard Mk II honing guide includes the standard clamping head, straight roller base and angle registration jig. It's the option most useful for woodworkers who mostly use planes and other wide blades. It accepts blades between 12.7mm and 73.0mm wide and up to 11.9mm thick, including skew blades. It hones bevel angles from 15° to 54° and back bevels from 10° to 20°.

    Offering an impressive range of angle settings, the integral blade angle registration jig squares the blade and sets the bevel angle in one easy step. A scale and sighting mark help center blades when using the standard head. Once the blade is clamped, the jig slides off the guide.

    The optional Veritas Skew Registration Jig locks into the MkII honing guide to make quick work of setting both skew and bevel angles (left- or right-hand) of chisel and plane blades.

    The jig's machined aluminum base provides skew angle markings that are laser etched for accuracy and legibility. The skew angle graduations cover the range of 10° to 45° in 5° increments, and there are additional marks (18°, 22°, 28°) to cover the angles of popular skew plane blades.

    The base has four distinct tracks providing four bevel angle settings: 20°, 25°, 30°, and 35°. (The honing guide's eccentric roller allows variation from these angles for creating a micro-bevel.) The unique sliding fence with blade stop allows you to match an existing skew angle visually – even if it is non-standard.

    The included straight roller hones straight edges. At 50.8mm wide, it provides a stable base for even the narrowest of blades. The barrel-shaped camber roller (available separately) lets you rock the guide slightly to hone a slight curve or camber into a blade edge, eliminating blade tracks when planing.
