    Joey, dont give on golf. You can make a baseball swing work for you. I know a lot of ball players that can really play golf. Just find a good instructor that wont try to change it too much, just try to make it work for you.

    I just got finished building my stone holder for my EZE Sharp system. Here are some pictures I took along the way. Here's a simple list of the materials you would need if you would like to build one.

    1. 2 ft of 303 5/16" stainless steel rod
    2. Loctite waterproof epoxy
    3. Handle - your choice of shape
    4. Generic stone holder (I believe they're all about the same)
    5. Teflon tape
    6. Blue loctite thread sealer
    7. Emery cloth

    My stainless steel rod came from a 6 ft piece, so I had to cut 2 ft off of it. From there, I had to use a die to make threads for the handle. I then drilled a hole through the 3 rubber blocks on the stone holder. The first 2 holes I drilled a little smaller so I had a good, tight fit. The third hole I drilled in the third block a little bigger because that block must move to adjust for the stones. You have to drill a little off center in the first block as there is a metal pin, I believe that runs through the middle of it. The two remaining blocks are just rubber with no metal inside them. At this point, I dry-fit the rod through the rubber blocks, marking the locations where I lightly sanded the rod so the epoxy would stick better. Next, I mixed up the epoxy which dries in 5 minutes (so you have to work fast) and put it in TWO holes on the bottom of the blocks that are already there. I then slid the rod through the block holes that I drilled. Once I got the rod pushed into the length I wanted it, I mixed up some more epoxy and pushed it down into the holes from the top making sure it was packed down tightly. See picture. Once the epoxy dried, I painted it black to match the block (do this step only if have OCD). I then put some teflon tape and the BLUE loctite on the threads and screwed on the knob. See finished picture.
    What I like about this setup is you can still use the stone holder without the EZE Sharp if you want to. (I don't know why you would). I like the EZE Sharp system a lot because you can sharpen on any angle and with any kind of stroke you want. You can slide it across the blade, you can push it back and forth, anything you can do free-hand. I also like the EZE Sharp a lot better now as I can change and use any stones I want.

    Look good Joey now my question is this. Is the EZE Sharp system have enough room to use a full pass on a regular 8" stone?

    Absolutely! The EZE sharp LOVES big knives! It also comes with a 9 inch holder (but now I can use any length stone). There is plenty of room between the T Stand and knife holder for even a real big cleaver. Wide and long is not a problem for this unit. That's one of the reasons I bought it. Also another big factor was you don't have to hold on to the knife. This way you have loads of control with the stone. I would advise taping the knife blade to protect it. You also can get a "WEDGE" so you can sharpen chisels and seizors bedsides the knife holder. Plus the EZE sharp is REALLY built WELL. Not a light unit.

    Think shapton glass stones for this setup. No need to soak just a good spritz, stay flat a bit longer than most. Also not very thick so set one and regardless no need to reset. Needless to say they cut good and leave an excellent finish at every grit.
