As now I’m getting a collection of planes and chisels, I need a way to get a consistent bevel. Looking over the Internet I come across this plan. I feel that this would suit my needs best. I did notice I missed putting a 20 on there but I’ve got plenty of room on the left side to add several more as I need them.
Finished with a couple coats of Danish oil in hopes of sealing out the water.
Quick project that only took about 30 minuets to make but should be a useful addition to the shop.

Looking good, almost too good to get muddy and wet! Modeled after the LN one?

Yep. I was actually looking for the veritas mark II when I come across this jig. I think it’ll work just fine.

Looks great, Troy.
I don’t know why it has taken me so long to build one of these?
I like the contrasting woods.

Very nice. Probably a dumb question but what is the piece of wood tethered to the base used for?
What type/brand of stone are you using?

The stones are Norton and I’ve just got them and haven’t used them yet. The teather is attached to a 1/8” spacer that you place in front of the block you are using to reset the blade in order to get a 2 degree micro bevel on the end of the blade.

I think I like it, but I don’t understand how it works. *blushes

I’ve got the LV vise type honing guide. The angle is determined by the amount of iron that sticks out past the guide. The farther it sticks out the less the angle. The blocks may not be dead on but it will be within a degree of two and the more important thing is it’s repeatability once it’s honed. It just allows for quick set up instead of having to measure each time.

Ahhhhh. Now I understand.

I’ve got the Veritas jig, but try to hone by hand. I use the jig for the more serious workload of reshaping/removing chips.

Thanks for the explainer.
