Not at all, I wonder how they did that job?

I said "It is" as in it's interesting.

It is, how did they erect Stonehenge Phil?

Real stuff. No one knows. Being bored today, I spent a few hours doing reseach, because I am really interested in this kind of thing, As the structure was "theoretically" started over seven thousand years ago. No one has a clue... I think that we can rule out unions and ergonomics though...

Really like having the WEPS angled towards me.
Can easily see the knife tip area which is a bonus.
It's great to look directly at the top and center of a blade while I sharpen.
Then to simply lift and lower to look along the bevel.

I guess anyone that has spent a lot of time with it level would find it hard to try something different.

I'm finding I vary the angle for different knives but set the angles when it's flat.

That's a good point, being able to see the tip.

If you want different angles then your invention should work well. If you have a angle cube you can also keep track of the base angle.

I have the angle cube, but it's all about the view, I felt like I was sliding off the end of the knife without enough control.
The tip is the area that needs the most concentration.

I just need to make the tilt easily adjustable.

I'm not using the angle dimples as these force you to use the micro-adjust.
The only reason I can see why someone would use the dimples and micro is if the L-brackets slip.
Of course you need an angle guage or clinometer app.

With two screws against the flat crossbar I get a solid grip.

Using a decent tool to tighten them helps also.

That's also an Ergonomic tool. :lol:

Actually I am eyeing that one closely. Next to sharp knives, my next OCD is nice tools.

It's just a screwdriver that accepts 1/4" bits of different sizes etc.

I'm not convinced a thumbscrew can be trusted for this task.
I remember watching this video way back.


The left side comes loose and Clay quickly snips it up again. ;)
