Default "What is it?" #128

Gee I've been so busy I have not even got around to remounting this tool after almost 2 years.... Well don't worry I'll get a round to it.

The problem is I've forgotten what it is and why I own it.... This is where you come in, look at the picture and tell me what this is and how it works and what other tools I might need to make it useful. Be the first one to correctly do so and you get to be the winner plus 100 points. Make sure you put some details in to the descriptions my mind is like a steel trap but a little rusty for the time being.

Looks like one of them fancy tool rests for sharpening chisels and such. This should work pretty good with that freshly dressed grinding wheel too.

its a tool rest. it replaces the tool rest that comes with your bench grinder.
this tool rest is made for the shapening off plane blades , chisels ect.
there are three items pictured one is the tool rest. no. 2 is angle guage that is used to setup the tool rest to the griding wheel then item no. 3 the grinding jig can be used on the tool rest. the grinding jig clamps the tool (chisels plane blades) in place.
ther is also a diamond dresser (not pictured) that can be used to keep the wheel true and square to the tool rest.

start square, finish square
