Subject:
Wolverine/Vari grind help

Robert Edington
I just took a class on woodturning with Mark Sillay. He reground my Galser bowl gouge with a Wolverine/Vari grind. The Vari grind he used was a newer model than the one I have. Mine does not have "settings" on it. The grind he did was much different than the one I've been using. I tried to duplicate it, but have been only able to match the nose angle. I do not know how to adjust the Vari grind to match the grind on the "wings" or side of the gouge. Right now, the nose is good, but the grind on the side is way low on the gouge (not anyway near the cutting edge).
I do not know which way to move (the leg on the Vari grind) or what to move (the wolverine base in or out) to move the grind on the side up to match what we used in the class.
Thanks
RP
