I've got some prototypes of the new low angle adapter in. This piece allows for reducing the angle by approximately 7 degrees from what is stated on the degree bar. In the photos is pictured a cheap 4" utility blade measuring .75" from spine to edge. I'd love some feedback on this new accessory.

Cool! Does it require longer arms as well?

It doesn't require them but they would be a benefit, especially for longer knives.

Hey Clay,

Would you offer some arms with a greater lenght than the current ball joint arms at some point?
Maybe a kit? Looks interesting.

Is there a reason you have the accessory clamped up so that it is not even, front to back, in the stock jaws?

I wonder if some ridges or maybe a notch could be put on the extension where it sits in the vise to allow the stock jaws to fit inside and center it relative to the stock vise? I know that the more machining required... or additional stock thickness, just would make the device more expensive...

It looks promising though.

I like it, Clay.

I want one!

Aside from that mower blade fiasco, I rarely go higher than 26° inc and would love an easy way to go lower for a few blades. Might work well for narrow knives too. Like paring knives.

Love it! My only concern is that the extension vise will bend at the top... This has been an issue in the past with the regular jaws, but this looks thinner... How does it seem to hold up clay?

Yes, I think we would offer those, would be easy to do.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean here (might be because I've spent the last three hours reading through 50 pages of patent docs and accompanying figures and my mind is numb.) The extension slips inside of the stock jaws and is notched to fit in the same way every time, resting on the top of the stock jaws. The extension is machined in such a way that the center-line of the extension clamp is in the same plane as the center-line of the stock clamp. Is this what you're asking about?

I haven't done extensive testing yet but haven't run into any problems so far. Any volunteers for testing and feedback?

Looks great. I have in mind another extension jaws - very similar, but low and wide for flexible fillet knives. But there can be 2 issues: 1. knives are of different lengths, so no width will be ideal for every knife. 2. knives are thinning from heel to tip, there can be clamping problem.

I'm working on some long, very thin spring steel shims to help stabilize flexible blades. Just waiting on samples back now to see how they work.
