Chisel Sharpening Jig
This sharpening jig was designed to work with the most common chisel sizes – from 1/4″ (6MM) up to 1″ (25MM). Easy to make from commonly available material, it is put together using simple joinery and can be completed by an average woodworker in an afternoon.
The jig can be customized to work with any size stone (or diamond plate), or can work with wet / dry sand paper directly on a flat surface. Setting it up is fast and easy, making those sharpening tasks much less of a hassle.
Unlike the popular rolling sharpening guide, this jig is very stable – it holds the chisel firmly and accurately, and will not tip or roll over, dulling your freshly honed edge.
There are 13 printable drawings and a materials list.
These include 6 parts drawings showing every part in detail, and 5 assembly drawings covering each step of the assembly process.
For your convenience, this plan has both imperial and metric dimensions, with the metric dimensions (millimeters) in brackets. Please note that the plan was originally designed in fractional inches, and these dimensions were converted to millimeters.
Screw sizes and other hardware are in imperial units.
