Knife Sharpening / Re: Advice for these Blades
« on: September 16, 2019, 07:39:52 pm »
Way better results with my modified jig than with the hand raise method alone. I think the combination of this jig and the handle raise method get me pretty damn close.

Thanks for the help!

Wow those are sweet! Thanks so much for sharing those. I really like the triangular one. Great design.

Hey Rich, can't this be accomplished by raising and lowering the tooling arm till the appropriate secondary bevel angle is achieved?

Like this (can't wait to try it):



I peined over the holes a little to give a tight fit as a temporary solution. If I never take it off, I'll go back and epoxy it in with some G-Flex.

Cheers,

After looking at it, I think I'm going to try to replicate this jig, however, I'm going to go a little simpler.

I was thinking of drilling a hole in the stem of the knife jig and inserting a pin, and then have a set screw @90 degrees. Very cool jig. Hope it works!

The thread you need is just a few downwards: https://www.tormek.com/forum/index.php?topic=3780.0

Yes, you need to pivot, and need a pivoting adapter of a sort on your knife jig as pivoting the stock Tormek knife jig will not grind even bevels.
See if you can make one yourself, similar in functionality to the Pin Pivot Collar described in the above thread.

Excellent, thank you very much! I missed that one. Cool jig for sure!

I'm a custom knife maker and I have a few knife styles that I was looking for advice on how to sharpen. They both have fairly aggressive curves towards the tip in the direction of the spine.





When using the "handle raising method" and keeping the jig perpendicular to the guide; the tip bevel moves "up the wheel" towards the user. Which results in a different tip bevel angle.

Like this:





I found this old thread on a jig, but I'm afraid it will scratch my finish:

I also found these collar stops:



Does anyone use these type of jigs? You have to pivot correct? Seems pretty difficult. But I'm game if that's what it takes.

Thanks for any help!
