Here are some pics of the skew sharpening jig that I made for my WS3000 to sharpen the blade for my Stanley #289 plane. The block is approximately 3” x 2” x 10”. The bed angle is 30 degrees and the skew angle is 22 degrees. The block is clamped to the work surface and the blade is placed in the jig and then is slid down to the grinding wheel. I got this idea from Chris Schwarzs blog at Popular Woodworking on how to correct the skew for a plane blade or chisel.
