I thought about making a sharpening jig like this a while back and didn’t. Here’s why: I use water stones and the two faces, over time, will become non parallel with use (re-flattening each face w/ use). One side of the stone will become thicker than the other so that the stone will slope from end to end. As you sharpen with the “super cool jig” the jig will be riding on a surface that is not parallel to top of the stone. As a result the bevel angle will be changing as you move the jig-chisel forward and back.
Nice in theory but not practical in the real world.

To Garageworks; That is why I use the DMT diamond sharpening plates, the surface will stay flat and parallel… I like the cam clamp idea, I can use one to hold small parts.

I am thinking in buying this Jig since Allan announced he was developing one. I like two things, one is that it doesn´t ride the stone. Hadn’t thought on the issue riding the same parallel face on waterstones… but working with diamonds would surely solve that. And the other is the angle adjustment mechanism
Two things that has kept me from buying the Jig are: 1) the price (130), and 2) the way you set the blade for it to be 90° to the jig.
Now that you have used it I would like your input on both of these, specially for the 90° angle adjustement. Is it easy to make?

Actually, it is VERY practical for just about every sharpening media EXCEPT waterstones, making it pretty much ideal IF you are willing to compromise on your choice of media.
