It is not without reason this jig is named "Multi Jig". It consists of a housing and two interchangeable seats for different types of tools, the open seat and the closed seat, which really makes it two jigs in one.
With SVS-50 you can sharpen square and skew turning chisels with straight or curved edges as well as parting tools, roughing gouges and gouges and chisels for woodcarving.

The closed seat - For square and skew chisels
The closed seat has been developed for the precision sharpening of square and skew chisels for woodturning and woodcarving. Since the chisel is mounted in the centre of the seat, you only need to mount the tool once for grinding both bevels. When one side is ready, you simply turn the jig upside down and sharpen the other side until they are symmetrical.
Thanks to a unique and patented design, the jig also copes with oval section skews. The jig aligns the skew so that it is parallel with the universal support and you can sharpen both straight and curved edges. Max width of skews 32mm (1.25in).
The open seat - For roughing gouges, parting tools and wide carving gouges
The open seat, where the tool is fixed with a top screw, is used for tools which have the edge ground square across the shank, such as parting and beading tools, roughing gouges and wide carving gouges up to 50mm (2in) wide. The seats are mounted with a bottom screw, which also enable you to choose the skew angle.
