Good Night, Friends.
In need to make a jig to adjust the angle on the guide edging
chisel and planer blade.
I wanted to make a compact as well as wanted to keep along with the
accessories for edging.
Used Cumaru, Itauba and a piece of shoelace.
I ended up with this result, hope you like:

the cutting edges, very good.

Good idea. I’ve been using a small block of wood but it is only good for my chisels at 30 degrees. I like the adjustability of you jig.

Could you share the measurements for the grooves? This will give me a much more consistent sharpening edges. Thanks for sharing this. Pat

That’s a great idea! I’ve seen plenty of blocks for setting the blade angle, but I’ve never seen an adjustable one. I’m adding that to my to-do list. It would be a perfect idea to submit to a magazine, you should seriously consider it!

Thank you all for having enjoyed my jig.

The measurements for the grooves l depend on the honing guide you have.
