Standard TILT TABLE
Knife Bevel Grinding Jig or Tool Rest
The New Standard Tilt Table knife makers jig or tool rest was designed by Jason Northgard and Dan Berg. The original Tilt Table revolutionized the industry. It was a game changer for knifemakers drastically improving the quality of bevel grinding overnight. This version of the original Tilt Table is our new entry level model. We were able to make it more affordable by slightly redesigning the table. The end result is a rock solid Jig that functions like the Pro and includes all hardware. The table can be easily set to any desired bevel angle. This jig is very adaptable. It adjusts up and down, left to right for centering on the platen, so it can be positioned to fit a variety of 2x72 grinders. As long as the grinder accepts a second 1 1/2" square tooling arm the table should fit. The Tilt Table allows knife makers to grind not only flat bevels but also hollow grinds and recurved bevels.
Please note on this model the end user has to grind the belt relief on back of the table. This can be easily done with an angle grinder or 2x72 belt grinder. Watch assembly video for quick easy instructions. If you want to try out the Tilt Table but are not sure if it will adapt to your 2x72 grinder we offer a full refund minus shipping. Mount the table and confirm belt notch aligns with your grinders belt prior to grinding belt relief. Once the notch is ground or table modified its yours and non returnable.

Want to see how it works??
Using the tilt table is probably the closest to free grinding a knife maker can get while still having the angle support of a jig. All the knife maker has to do is to scribe center lines on the edge of the blade and then place the knife blank onto the table. While keeping the blade flat against the table move the blade up until it is in contact with the belt. Then start grinding while carefully keeping an eye on the scribed center line being careful not to grind past the line. It is that simple. A sharp coarse grit belt is recommended for rough grinding then a finer grit belt can be used to polish the bevels.
