Default Another simple jig

There seems no end to the ingenuity of woodworkers, here is another jig that I received in todays emails.

Looks interesting but if that's wood won't it get sanded as well? Maybe better for those after use sharpening touch ups?

OK but that's a well kept secret from the picture Maybe a few more views are better to reveal how it would work. I need another cup of coffee......

Woodworkers are generally very ingenious people, give an idea they usually come up with a version based on their own ideas. A perfect example is my router skis, whilst lots of members have made almost identcal copies, many have produced their own versions which achieve the same results.

Ah, the missing pieces......that does explain a few things. But now I think if you're doing anything more than a lite touch finish you'll need to move the blade as you progress through the sharpening process otherwise you change the bevel angle wouldn't you? Thinking out loud about this again, the wife hates that..., I guess it doesn't differ from my Veritas jig once the angle is set.....actually it does because the Veritas has one rolling surface while this has two. I need another cup and maybe a shot.......just to thin it a bit

Now that is a tool I can understand, that I like, would definitely use it for plane irons, and best of all, could make one pretty easily.

I suppose you could create something along the same lines for sharpening chisels, but I wouldn't bother. Chisels I sharpen on my bench belt sander.

If you just put wheels on the back end you won't have to move the blade, even with a full sharpen the angle won't change much but the change will be to move the action towards the edge which is exactly where you want it.
