Edit … Your blades may be different than mine. So your cut for the blades may be a different depth.
This time I made it fancy like the Deulen $50 dollar and $96 dollar Knife Sharpening Jig’s!
My cost $7.50 for screws!
See My old prototype here > http://lumberjocks.com/projects/70287
The first one I made was a trial/experiment made using some soft wood and now these two jig’s are the real deal made using hard Bamboo flooring. I planed the flooring boards flat and glued up a stack of 4 boards to make the blank. Then cut the 45 degree cuts to form the slot’s and grip’s. I drilled a hole in the end to hold the Allen wrench.
The joiner blank is 2 1/4”W X 1 7/8”H X 5 L” I made two 45 degree cuts in the 2 1/4” bottom side to hold the blades and drilled and tapped the bamboo, used 4 set screws hold the blades in place.
I use the Deulen method to sharpen the knives 10 strokes on each of 220-, 320- and 400 sandpaper then once on the 400 laying flat to clean the edge. I use my table saw table for the flat surface. I have some tempered glass that I could use also!
Thank for peeking in!
