Default Brett's Top Fuel Dragster Honing Guide

INEXPENSIVE, key word. As pointed out below, while there are several fancy smancy systems on the market, some like to fiddle with building their own tools, jigs, etc. That's all this is, an inexpensive too sharpening honing guide.

This is my version 1.02.

Took me awhile to figure out just the right setup, but I've come up with something that will:
a) Prevent side-pivot based on wide-stance design (keeps a perfectly straight profile (technically).

b) Allow for up to 3" wide blades or super-wide mortise chisels for the Noah Ark builders, haha.

c) Fully adjustable for any grind medium, flat diamond plates, Scary-Sharp methodology (glass & sandpaper), thicker stones of any height, etc, doesn't matter, this will adjust to any angle for any grind medium.

d) Inexpensive, most expensive parts would be the Jorgensen 4” Adjustable Handscrew itself at about $12, along with a 7/8” 7/8 in. Flat Ball-Bearing Tub Enclosure Roller from your local hardware store, few other pieces of hardware, minor stuff. NOTE: for this build I sacrificed a $7 Northern Tools wood-clamp, the Jorg version I think uses a 5/16” screw adjuster vs the larger 3/8” screw adjuster the one I used has, either will work.


Ok, took some pics with the Nikon in the Kitchen and I was attacked by my 1yr old Grandson Brantley...he likes the Honing Guide more than I do...thus it's no longer a Honing Guide, it's now a TRUCK...with just two wheels, lol.

Ahh, been there done that Bob, very familiar with the majority of sharpening systems out there.

I should have premised the thread with "on the cheap" for the DIY'rs. I for one find it fun to build tools, jigs, etc.

Example: If there was a Pantorouter on the market, someone could have posted "all I can say is" ...oh wait! There is nothing like the Pantorouter, haha!

This was a project to build with minimal cost, mostly out of scraps and minor hardware many may have in their shop.

That's something I'm pondering Chris, v1.02 is designed with dual t-tracks that will cinch any chisel from the sides and clamp from above, yet leave room for a 3" blade which I'll likely never own a hand plane for. With a DW735 planer in my shop, the hand planing is really kind of minimal. If anything with furniture building and tenon joinery, a smaller hand plane might come in handy now and then. Then again the pantorouter cuts a perfect tenon with any angle including the depth I want, so even a hand plane for tenons might be far and few between.

Thus I may narrow the device to 2-1/2" on v1.02, will ponder the design some more. Biggest design feature of the current version or 2nd one is the adjustable height for any sharpening medium vs fumbling with this little $11 guide on whatever sharpening surface and limited space.

Brett, I am in the same boat about building things to use in my shop. I looked at your three photo attachments from your original thread starter and I would like to say, "Your work in Sketch Up is very nicely presented". Are you sure this is your idea, or is it really something made by Hitachi? Those lime-green wheels gave-it-away! <just kidding>. Great idea and I am looking forward to see v1.02

Haha, thanks OP, now I'm wondering if Hitachi makes one! I should submit something to them, get signed up for some kind of electric (back & forth) motorized hand sharpener, lol.

Found the wheels at a flea market today, 1/4 shaft so 1/4-20 threaded bolt/etc will work for the wide-body no-rocking stance.

Haha, can't decide whether I want yellow or purple.
