I have been using the WEPS so long that I only use the degree markings as approximations of the angle I want...my accuracy comes from using the angle cube, and now on the new arms, the fine adjustment screws. Couldn't get much better than that.
A sharpener that can give you split-hair accuracy would require an expensive micrometer on each side which would boost the sharpener's cost prohibitively. An error of .5 degrees is of no consequence, but an error of 3 degrees tells me something is very wrong. Either user error or the fine adjustment screws are in different places. If the sharpener has been assembled properly and nothing has been bent or misaligned, then speak to Clay and he will help you out as he always does when there is any problem. No fear. ;)

Is it possible that this is the angle rod from the original WEPS and not the upgraded one that is supposed to come with the riser block?

Hey CQCQ! Welcome aboard. Is it QRK5 QSA5 ?? Or am I too old to remember back that far?

There was indeed something wrong with the set in the picture. The problem was already reported (and solved) more than a year ago in this topic so apparently I received a set that missed the recall.

I am happy to report that I have been in contact with Kyle about this and he has been very helpful and has send a replacement. Thumbs up for Wicked Edge and Kyle for their excellent service.
