I am wanting to build a decent bench grinder tool rest for grinding lathe tools. I can grind free hand quite well but I want something better. The tool rests that came with the grinder I have are adjustable forward and backward only. I want to build a tool rest that will adjust for height, vertically and for angular tilt. I have plans for the Tinker as well as the Mini Tinker, but I want something simpler. I have a Quorn Tool and Cutter Grinder about 80% finished so I don't need a real elaborate system for the bench grinder. Are there any ideas out there that I could use to replace the stock tool rests?
