I am thinking about buying this sucker to sharpen my jointer knives.
I had my knives sharpened at Woodcraft and I was VERY unhappy with the
quality of the sharpening and the service (SLOW).
I just tried sharpening my knives by using a block of wood, cut at the bevel
angle, and holding the blade firmly against the wood with downward pressure
and moving back and forth over a wetstone. The results I obtained doing
this were significantly better than the woodcraft sharpening service. Plus
it only took me 45 min or so. I think I could do an even better job with
the Veritas jig.
Anyone out there use that sucker ta sharpen your blades??
I haven't used it but I own one. I went away from Scary Sharp and
moved to stones. None of my stones are big enough for a jointer knife.
If you're interested I'll sell it to you for $30 (it's $45 online)
plus whatever shipping costs. It's still in the wrapper, I got it for
a Christmas present.
My email is "orders 4 mjs AT cableone DOT net" (yes, "4" not "four").
Let me know if you're interested.
