Vari-grind or Vari-grind 2?

I have a oneway wolverine and need to get a jig for my bowl gouges, which do you suggest between the two?

Thanks!

I can only comment on the original. Works for me.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

I thought the difference between those 2 was which wolverine setup was used. I would go with the original. That's what I have and it works well.

That's true, I forgot about that part. Different arms for different jigs

Glad to help. Occasionally I have something worthwhile to contribute on this forum. Mostly I just read stuff...

I'll order the vari-grind and spend the difference on wood!

I prefer the Vari grind. I don't like the varigrind 2 because I move my jig forward in the V arm after sharpening the first bevel. Here is a video showing what I do.
