The "Ultimate All-In-One Angle Tool"...
« on: January 13, 2020, 05:18:05 pm »
Brian from "bootheel customs" has created the "Ultimate All-In-One Angle Tool"...



... that is used for setting the USB height, (for setting the angle in knife sharpening).  It measures the Wheel Diameter, Projection Distance, and then, (with the aid of a calculator), sets the USB height measuring directly to the wheel.  I've used one the last week or so, and found it to work well.


Edit:  The All-In-One Angle Tool is now sold  HERE

EditA newer (& shorter) YouTube Instruction Video
An older YouTube Video, showing it in use.

(p.s. Not affiliated BTW, just like it).

I agree with CB. I have used Brian's all-in-one tool. I have used one and like it.

Does anyone know where else to find one of these? It’s not showing up on the eBay page.

The link works... that is BootheelCustoms main ebay page.  If they're not there... that means he's out of stock... so check back, they show up under the "Items for Sale" section.  (Maybe send him a message there, and let him know you're interested).

Used the tool yesterday and I like the "all in one" usage.

Took the guess work out of the normal angle tool (feels like my eyes were playing tricks on me).

Thanks for the feedback... been using mine for about a month now... I think it works great.

I hope he makes more of them available, it really makes setup easy and accurate.

I'm sure he will. I messaged him when they were out and he was waiting for parts. He put them back up within the week.
