A jig for sharpening using a hand drill plus aluminum wheel
Is there any sort of design for a shop made cradle to hold a hand drill for sharpening such as kitchen knives and a general use chisel?
I have seen cheap bench grinders and the expensive Tormeks and Jet systems.
On the cheap grinders, the speed is usually too high.
So if I have a variable speed hand drill, a simple aluminum oxide grind wheel and a cradle, I could do the sharpening I need at low speed and hardly any cost. Also I have no place to set up "machine shop" tools. The jig could be mounted on my Workmate as an example.
Has anyone seen this design and can a link be made to it? The design is usually with the drill upside down to find a flat side to secure and level it. I have seen this somewhere but cannot locate anything about such a project.
