I am thinking that your Oneway Vari-Grind can adjust for your scraper. But now owning that one, I am guessing. FWIW, I am still struggling with the sharpening the cutoff. I can turn it on its edge and sharpen, but that is not doing as well as I had hoped. May just need a straight platform, or one set at 85-89 degrees. this one should not be that difficult.

BTW, I pulled these numbers off of the belt: RP 0511 1203
The 1/2in wide belt seems to be about 10” long folded, may a bit less. I am going to hunt around locally for a spare.

Nice holders for your skews. I probably could have made mine a bit wider to match that angle. Hey, do let me know how that socket on a rod works out. that looks very adjustable, but I wonder about repeatability of settings… But then again, IMO, that repeatability fear factor thing is a bit over blown. While I know certain angle ranges are important to certain/select tools, I am of the opinion that marketers drive the fear factor up in order to create sales of “their” solutions. But then again, that is just my opinion.
