    Frustrated and confused by the instructions supplied with your sharpening system? You’re not alone, many woodturners are.
    We think using your sharpening system should be simple. In fact, we believe that setting up to sharpen should be a "no-brainer" that takes only seconds while resulting in consistent, repeatable grinds every time. With Raptor™ Set Up Tools, sharpening is fast and easy.
  • No more tool holder leg adjustments
  • No more "eye-balling" during set up
  • Get repeatable grinds in only seconds
  • Laser cut from steel to last a lifetime
  • Use 2 Raptor Set Up Tools to create double bevel grinds
  • Made in USA

    Raptor™ Set Up Tools work with the Oneway® Vari-Grind™ Jig, Kelton Sharpening Jig, Woodcut™ Tru-Grind, and most other systems that utilize an adjustable tool support slide and tool holder.

    Each Raptor™ Set Up Tool comes with easy-to-follow instructions and quick reference sheet with recommended bevel angles for turning gouges as used by Craft Supplies USA professionals.

A requirement for grinding all gouges and skews

Comments On Jan 23, 2017:The Raptor Set Up Tools not only make it possible to reproduce the same bevel time and time again but they also increase the lifetime of my tools. When you eyeball the setup you may get close but you will still have to remove more metal than when your setup is dead on everytime. A diamond stone will quickly restore a burr but when a new grind is desired these setup tools make it such that a quick and light swipe each way will restore the grind exactly as it was previously. These setup tools can be used for skew chisels and are also perfect for creating secondary bevels as well.

Raptor setup tools

Comments On Jan 31, 2017:I have now used this product a few times. It makes setting up and sharpening your chisels so much easier than by eye and hand. The tools are very well made and feel like they will last a life time. I feel that they were an excellent purchase

Perfect setup every time.

Comments On Aug 25, 2016:These Raptor Set Up Tools will help you set up the proper angle for sharpening your tools on your grinder every time. They are quick and easy and will make the adjustment needed to achieve the proper angle for getting the proper grind on your tools no matter how old your grinding wheel is. They are marked with the angle right on each tool. A must have for proper sharpening.

Highly recomended

Comments On Mar 25, 2015:I just started learning how to grind an Irish and fingernail grind on my bowl gouges and these things make it so easy to get consistent results! I am very happy with them and to top it off the shipping to Saskatchewan was really fast. Great company to deal with and it's hard to beat the price for something that can save you so much time.

Essential for the Novice Turner

Comments On Mar 03, 2014:I am a novice turner and admire the people who do this for a living or who have sharped their turning tools for decades. They take their tools and with a couple of deft swipes over the grinder, then go to work. Not me. I need all the help I can get setting up my grinding jig and the Raptor tools help me get the angles right. This is especially important in sharpening spindle and bowl gouges. I have a set (it should come as a set) hanging beside my grinder and they are essential when I set up to sharpen my tools. They are well made of metal that is thick enough to make them hold up in my shop and my degree of clumsiness. The Raptor set up tools take most of the "guesswork" out of my set up and, as a result, I sharpen more often. Prior to my Raptor tools I would sharpen only when I absolutely had to. Now, I keep my tools sharper and my cuts smoother because the set up is easier and quicker.

Love these tools!!!

Comments On Jan 04, 2014:The Raptor Set Up Tools have made sharpening my gauges so much easier and a much more pleasant experience. I can sharpen my bowl and spindle gouges without trying to eyeball the bevel and get back the fun part of woodturning so much faster. This has been one of my better investments!
