    Yes Joe. I had them in mind for sure. I also like the sandpaper gadget I built for this setup. It won't go to waste. Tomorrow I'll snap a picture or two with the new stone holder to give you an idea of clearance showing a full stone pass. It's all in the angle. Which you have many with this setup.

    • joe_c Said:
    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?



    As I stated, there is enough room to take a full pass with an 8 inch stone with a big knife. In fact the bigger the better. Cleavers are king! No problem. But with a smaller knife (less wide) there is less room between the back tee arm and the knife holder and could pose a problem for a full pass on a stone. The rubber stone holder I built is a little bigger than the one that comes with the EZE Sharp. That makes it a little tight. So with a little R&D I came up with a simple fix. (pictured above) A 3/8" S.S. threaded rod (a few inches long) and a few nuts and washers. Just use the existing 3/8 tap and screw it together like the picture. DONE. Now you can adjust the arm for any size knife. This system with the above "tweeks" is a very nice setup and IMHO should be one to consider if learning to sharpen by hand. Pretty much fool proof.

    Joey, can you post a picture of the whole device with a knife mounted and stone arm in place?

    Sure Dave. I'll take some pictures tomorrow. Do you want to see it with the new stone holder and the little "rod" attachment or the "untouched" version the way it came?

    I'd be interested in seeing the whole new set up that you made.

    O.K. Here are a few more pictures of the EZE Sharp. The first pic shows the EZE Sharp and holder, the 2nd pic shows the start of a stroke, the 3rd pic shows a midway stroke and the 4th pic shows the end of the stroke. The 5th pic shows you the adjusting knob and the degree marks for the knife holder.(the adjusting T-Arm also shows degree marks) The knife holder flips around to the other side of the knife "WITHOUT" taking the knife lose from the knife clamp. If I had someone to take the pictures while I actually was sharping a knife you could get a better idea of all the angles you can get with this setup. Hope this gives a rough idea though. The aluminum bar would of course work the same way.

    Joey, thanks for taking the time to post these pictures. I like the changes you've made to overcome it's shortcomings. Nice work.

    I'm curious as to why there's two angle adjustments (t-bar and clamp). How do they work together?

    Also, what the range of angles that this device offers?

    No problem guys. After all the help I've gotten from this board it's the least I could do.

    As far as why does it have Two angle adjustments Dave, I believe it's used when you have a really big pair of Grass shears or scissors. Remember this device can be used for more than knives with the optional wedge. It also does chisels, plane blades and tin snips to name a few others. Your not "LOCKED" into just a few angles. Because of this double adjustment the angle you can get is basically infinite.

    I really don't see a down side to this unit for a novice or a professional if used in the right capacity. Now I have to get me some Shapton Glass stones and some extra sandpaper.

    Go with the glass stones and forget the sand paper. I spent more the first year sharpening than a good set of stones cost. It just doesn't hold up that long.
