Budget whats that. My father taught me to make do. And sometimes the result is better than store bought. We once had a flat on the side of the road. We were way after the middle of nowhere. He had a tire (no rim on it), a tire jack and a can of wd40. He used the weight of the truck to break the flat down. Then placed the tire on the rim. Sprayed wd40 in the loose tire, lit a match spraying the oil over the flame. Pointed it the deflated tire. Boom. The ignition of the wd40 in the tire seated the tire on its bead over the rim. We put it on our truck and were off. All it cost was some sweat.
Great jig William. My guess is they will keep an edge longer without the micro-bevel.

Looks like a good idea to me. I think I’ll do that when I need to sharpen a pair of blades.

SuperD, I thought that was the proper way to change a tire. Of course, when I was growing up we always used starting fluid.
