I'm more interested in a bit more length as I posted above.

If it causes other problems, it would be nice to know before I try it.
I personally think more length should help, not hurt. It might create a small issue with technique as you'll need to make sure the rod ends don't hit each other on alternating strokes, but other than that I see a longer rod eliminating some of the play since you'll always have more rod left in the paddle than you have now. Less chance for rocking moment.
Particpant in finding out how sharp is sharp!

Mmm, thanks, I might move on this idea soon.

Need some space age material like this.

Delrin is relatively soft and would load up with metal filings and diamond debris. I think it may be hard to beat good old fashioned steel in this application.

I like to take long walks with just my putter, from the fairway.

I thought you would say that.

Are there differing qualities of this SS rod?
I can't help remembering some high $ vehicle pushrods I bought once for a drag car. (alloy)

I had some arms made two inches longer and loving them.
Highly recommend this.

Thinking I might raise the clamp even higher and go "another" inch or so on the arms.
Then I will be using "all" the stone at shallower angles.
Had a custom riser made and may machine the clamp sides as well.

Working on a rotating option for the vice also to remove the need for "packing" with FFG's.

Another idea is to have a base rail that the vise can slide along so I don't have to undo and move a long knife, I simply unlock and slide the clamped vice.
Perhaps two clamps or a front blade support on this rail?
