|Larger tools||TormekSVD-186 Gouge Jig (or SVD-185) is recommended.|
|Smaller tools||Tormek SVS-38 Short Tool Jig or SVS-32 may be appropriate. It is used in a similar manner.|
|Shorter tools||You may need to use a standard, off-the-shelf collar to guide the sharpening process. Most hardware stores carry these, or you can order one such as part number 9414T9 (7/16 inch) or 57485K68 (10 mm) from McMaster-Carr. Note : You will probably need to replace the set screw with a longer one.
Use the Projection Calculator to set the projection and USB distance from the grindstone.
Be sure to not grind a side bevel : the cutting edge should form a straight line when viewed from above.
