    IMG_2182.jpg This jig will hold about any stone at any angle. Just point the edge at the center of the earth and sharpen away.

    Not often on this site, but I have built a jig. It was all about working with what I already had on hand as much as possible. It looks a bit odd, but it is stable. How do I upload an image from my computer?

    I tried it, but it now has a ghost image in the post that I cannot delete

    [​IMG] This is the new one.

    It's larger and wider than before one.

    It's about 11 inch wide by 15,5 inch depth.

    The joint allow the rod to has useful angle of 60 degrees wider and the depth help me to sharp a small machete without move it side to side. I know that the angle change when I do it but for new enthusiast like me it's more stable. The stability also was reach increasing front side base width like as I said have 11 inch.

    Also there is magnetics glued in the front of base (base has like a "L" shape (covered with tape) that help hold the knife in place.

    I can reach 10 to 40 dps with the clamp on the blade. If I turn it and use like edge pro I believe I can go lower, but that's enough for me. Generally I use it for kitchen knifes and EDC knifes like Spyderco Tenacious and Izula. I also made a "mini base" to attach and use for my very small keychain knifes like Grasshopper but there is no clamp for it.

    The stone holder is a wood piece and there is a leather piece glued just to help hold the stone in place.

    The stones is 6 inch and sawed in half but I can use 8 inch stone too by moving the stopper ring without compromising the use of full stone depth.

    So let's see some more pics:
    This is it.

    I made this one in 2006. Uses Edgepro stones. I think photobucket no longer hosts third part photos. I am trying out postimage.org.

    Photobucket wants $399.00 to let you 3rd party host! So I downloaded all mine and deleted my account!
