Shop-made honing guide flips to hit the correct angles
Using some scrap material, a wing nut, machine screw, and a pair of router-bit guide bearings (3⁄16 " I.D. replacement ball bearings, 16J95.05, 800-871-8158, leevalley.com), I built this adjustable honing guide. Not only can it accommodate blades up to 2 1⁄4 " wide and any thickness up to 3⁄32 ", but its design makes switching between 25° and 35° sharpening angles as simple as flipping the jig around.
