Jig to sharpen scraper

I have tried to freehand sharpen my scrapers and always ended up with an uneven edge. I had a slat left over from the sewing thread project that was the right angle so I added some support pieces to it to bring it up over the stop bracket of sander. I put a threaded insert in the bottom that lines up with a hole in the sharpening bracket. Now I just attach the jig and lay the scraper on it and rotate it. I like this because I can sharpen the whole face at one time and it is even. I don’t have to move it up and down a grinding wheel.

Thanks for the comments.

It sure simplified the sharpening process at least for the scrapers.
