Ellsworth Gouge

Jim
>For several months, I use the Ellsworth Signature gouge for almost everything. It works for me. However, I'm struggling to keep it sharp with the original profile. I use the Ellsworth jig with a Kelton system set up 7" from the wheel face and 3-4 inches below center. I'm following the set up instructions to the letter. I have a six inch grinder. The wings are swept back almost 1-1/4 inches now. The instructions suggest 3/4". Anyone having a similar issue?
Thanks, Jim
