Great video and a simple jig that I’ll make tomorrow and give your sharpening technique a try. I’ve been doing it freehand and your jig should give more consistent results. Thanks for sharing.

So many different ways shown to do this on the web, but this seems to be the most straight forward. I am going to try in first of the week.

Thanks.
