Default Two Woodsmith jigs

These two plane iron sharpening jigs look simple to make and would make the job so easy.

what happens when the jigs sand down faster than the iron...
I suspect the bevel angle will change on every stroke...
DesertRatTom and Shop guy like this.

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Stick....

Stick makes a good point. I'm a diamond block for sharplening kind of guy, and rarely need more than half a dozen strokes to keep irons and chisels razor sharp. But it would certainly shave a little wood off the jig with every stroke. But I do give Woodsmith credit for posting some really basic ideas and methods. Their beginner videos emphasize the most basic tools rather than fancy tools and accessories. Their current TV series is going back to basics once again. A cycle that repeats every four years or so. However, I wish they wouldn't cut out middle steps in a process. Need to watch with the mouse working the pause/play button to really follow it.

don't believe that I need to be sanding wood w/ my diamond stones...
the finer the stone..
the worse the issue...

Given that ALL things will abrade if rubbed with a harder material

is there either a common or an exotic wood that would abrade slower so that the above jig(s) would be a doable item? semi-permanent ?

Thinking along the lines of "ironwood" and/or end grain?

Put a metal plate on the rub surface of the jig and bring the iron flush to it.

The second jig might have rollers or bearings in it... that might help with abrasion.

Some of us have miter trimmer knives and sharpening them can be a chore...
take the 2nd jig and add drawer casters adapt the jig to hold the miter's knives for sharpening....
add drawer casters to it and adapt to hold the trimmer blades/irons and I believe you have solved an issue..

to add the caster..
''wheel well'' for the caster wheels w/o the bracket and drift pin the wheels into place...
twin keyhole/T slot the jig's face to make for adjustablity...
