got it all mounted up and gave one of mine test knives a spin with the edge.

due to financial set back, i had to start out with the standard WE, so edge is standard.

my question is....the right hand bevel is more than the left side......is that because i used more pressure since i am right handed?



tricky trying both hands at once...wow......:ohmy:
thanks

Hi Tuffy!
Welcome to the fold chum! You will get used to the two handed thing after a bit...the thing about the right hand edge, may well be that you are right handed or your settings may be a slight bit off.Play with it a bit and you will get both sides even...here is where an angle cube helps out. Most of us here have gone on to purchase one and it will make a big difference. Too, many of the guys here have been making slight mods to their kit to make the WEPS even more precise. Read on in the various posts and you will better understand.
In the end after two years, I have made no mods to my kit and my edges are devilishly sharp in the real world. Some of my edges may be slightly different from the edge on the other side of the blade but not so you could notice in use.
Best advice...work slowly and follow the advice given by Clay and others here...don't rush a job and after you raise the all important burr with the coarse paddles, brush the edges with each succeeding paddle/grit like a soft summer breeze...no pressure...same with the strops!

All the best my friend! :)
Leo

Hey Tuffy,

I'm glad you're up and running. The edge you created looks great. I think I know what caused the issue with uneven bevels: it looks like the knife is fully flat ground and so is probably leaning to one side in the vise. Please check out this link: (FFG) Fully Flat Ground Blades to see how to set up the knife in the clamp to get it vertical. I hope that helps, would love to hear back from you on your results.

We don't have a classified section, so you can simply ask if anyone wishes to buy your rig from you, but I think the response will be thin.
I believe you are suffering from buyer's remorse...a good idea would be to wait a bit and keep on using your WEPS.I hardly think you have given the WEPS a real chance to show its stuff, but the decision is yours to make!
Best of luck!

This is pretty cryptic...

I have a bunch of sharpening systems (including the EP). When I want to put a showpiece edge on a blade that is also extremely sharp, I go to the WEPS. I am talking a real mirror...

Maybe if you could mention what is making you unhappy with your system, somebody here could help you out.

I am sure that there are many that would like to try..
