The iron for my #7 is pretty out of square on the cutting end. To the point that it is getting difficult to consistently sharpen.
I have a 6” grinder that I was planning to use to grind the new bevel and square up the end.
I know I need to be aware of how hot it gets, use a light touch…so I don’t ruin the temper.
The part I am struggling with is figuring out how to keep the blade square on the tool rest.
Does anyone have suggestions on jigs/approaches to achieve this?
I know there are sliding jigs you can buy that help achieve this. I would prefer not to buy an aftermarket attachment if at all possible (I’ve spent way too much on WW’ing lately). Unless you know of something relatively inexpensive <$20 or so.
I’ve considered using my honing guide as a stop against the grinder rest, but am not sure how great this will work.
I know I could also order a new blade, but this one is still good, just needs fixed.
Any help or ideas are appreciated!
