I recently bought a grinding jig for sharpening dies for a 3/4 Coventry die head ,but I have no instructions for how to use it correctly .Hopefully somebody will have used this jig and offer advice on how to use it PS I do have a Jones &Shipman surface grinder

David, This brief article is worth a read

PM me your real email address and I'll send you a couple of documents over tomorrow.
I can't remember where I found some of them, so I'll not reproduce them here.
