Re: Vari-grind basket height vs distance past jig?

Cliff,

There are a lot of ways to configure the Wolverine Vari-grind system, but Oneway does a poor job explaining the different settings and how they interact with each other. For the record, I own the Vari-grind 2 jig which has a small height adjustment, but wasn't sure if changing this height setting made any appreciable difference.

Pinning the pivot angle down to one setting limits experimentation so I've started writing down my preferred settings on a piece of tape around the ferrules for each gouge. This way I can play around with the settings and still get back to setting that works best for each gouge.

So any guesses what Don's new "Evolution" does that makes it worth an extra $49 (special sale price)? Don's website seems to be lacking any information and pics.
