    Saw this on the great wide Web
    I think with a little tweaking it may have merit !!
    Especially for those on a tighter budget.

    Iím pretty sure Iíve also seem them in groups of five on hard rubbish.

    Concern would be stone wear .... not much room to get good use of the stone :0

    And aaah, the tweaking would what, exactly? Inserting shims above the blade for a secondary bevel perchance?

    Or maybe loosening up its straightness of plough to use the full width of stone? Or does one do that via L/R pressure?


    EDIT: (2nd) Ah I get it! When the primary has been bludgeoned into it, one swaps to a 75mm dia wheel to establish the secondary. Please ignore previous slightly derogatory comments



    (3rd) EDIT: Assuming of coarse that one is lucky enough to find a 75mm wheel on the side of the road. For the very keen, I may have a couple here.....BYO shims for a tertiary bevel.

    Matt you must have just returned from a very recent psilocybin "trip" to Oakland, CA. Now you are alluding to distance=degrees marks down the blade for ľ-Ĺį secondaries.

    Ain't gonna happen buddy.

    Matt

    A suitable thickness block of timber placed ahead of the stone would allow the wheel to run up to the stone but not on the stone. Use about half the stone and then turn the stone around to use the other half. Easy.

    Cheers Matt,
    Ummm: Maybe. A lot would depend on how fast you wanted to sharpen.

    I recently attended a talk on Japanese tools where some sharpening was demonstrated and the first thing that stood out to me was how little of the stone was used where we tend to look at using the whole stone. The Japanese chap demonstrating was perhaps using less that 1/4 of the stone when he showed us how he sharpened. BTW he did not use a guide at all but he had been doing it for umpteen years so you would expect that.

    Well See Chris,
    With that information that guide system will be perfect,
    The Japanese have been sharpening sharp thingy s far longer than I have been.

    That would be pretty easy to sort out......just recess the stone flush in to a block of wood for the wheel to roll on.
