Spokeshave / small blade sharpening jig
from fine wood workings website

Saw this little clever jig on FWW and simply had to make my self one, a simple practical half hour project.
Can be used for all types of small blades also on the grinder, clever little useful jig, so I thought I would share it with you.

Link for article video where you can follow the build: http://www.finewoodworking.com/how-to/video/how-to-sharpen-a-spokeshave.aspx


Pictures:
1. The blade holding jig on the stone.
2. Sawing the wood.
(If you hold wood like this on the saw, fingers will be lost, this was just for showing).
3. Drilling, here for washer.
4. Ready for test.
5. blade in place and wing nuts tightened.
6. Setting the angle, don’t ask why 26,6 here…

Check this video on how to use your spokeshave: https://youtu.be/ahfcXH6Io3o

Inspired me, so it might inspire you also…

Best thoughts,

Madts, this one was really just copy cut, direct from FWW and I am now working on a tenon jig also that are just copy cut… Guess I lost it… Naaaa we don’t need to invent it all do we? Smiles.

Ohhh yes and you don’t need a digital read (I just show off), you can just use your protractor or make a set jig.
Actually I think I’ll make a set jig to have by the sharpening station.
Gerardo and Siavosh, thanks. ;-)

Dang, finally a way to use my old sharpening jig that I never use anymore. Thanks for bringing attention to this, hadn’t seen the idea before.

This is great Mads ! I had in mind to make myself such small blade holder. Now I don’t have to design one, only copy one ! :)

Thank you for posting and all the best,

Serge

Nice project, video stinks though! 13k grit is really unnecessary, not much difference past 6k grit. Video aside, GREAT project. I like yours!

Hi there,
Paul, smiles right back, is that one needed to be made.
HillbillyShooter, too easy not to be made.
ColonelTravis, ahhh double the pleasure.
Druid, thanks right back.
SPalm, I love these word games you can make thanks.
Wayne, so are you.
Lew, thanks dear Lew.
Brico, yes no need for improvements here, this one got it all.
Obed, yes really nice. Personally I go to 8000 grid, think that’s fine for me, but I have friends that sharpen with a angel grinder and build houses… Guess it’s a personal thing as long as we get the job done and smile as we go.
Best thoughts,
mads
