I used that jig for a year and then decided I had enough. I really did not like it and I tried all the tricks in the book to get it to work right. I now sharpen free hand and like it a lot.

If you like the MKII other than this issue, I would suggest using it to create the primary bevel and then using one of the cheap jigs with center roller to create the microbevel. These cheap jigs pretty much ensure that your microbevel will follow the primary bevel as far as squareness to the side of the blade. You could even freehand it.

I like the cheapo jig way more than that MKII. They are only like $10. If they are good enough for Lie Nielsen, they are good enough for me.

I really didn’t like that MKII…
