Hello fellows,

This time I would like to share my side sharpening jig.I made many for me and friends and it works pretty well.

The secret here is the wheel screwed at round bar.It change the position to be 100% in contact at flat surface near the stone.You need only to find the angle and tight the screws.

This one I made using wood and a piece of fiberglass I have.

You use a square or a pen line at blade body to put the blade in square with the edge of jig

Here the leather avoid the blade slip.The power of screws are very big

Here the wheel at round bar

The wheel change position to be 100% in contact

Thanks for attention
