A picture of this would help clarify things for me.

Thanks

Thanks, Josh. I remember that thread and did look it over again. I was confused about the stone being perpendicular to the edge. I was visualizing stone placement something akin to destressing the edge, cutting directly into the stone. Couldn't understand how that was to be accomplished.

Got it now.
Thanks

When I say perpendicular in this case it is on a different "axis" if you will... I am not meaning that you actually take your stones off of the rods and put it purpendicular into your edge. I am meaning that you leave it on the rod and then, wherever you move it you will want the edge to be as close to "parallel" with the top (short side of the rectangle of the stone). see attached pic... does it clear it up?

Just stumbled across this post and the one by cbwx34. Fantastic idea! Would have helped me a couple of times. :(

One question that came to mind, though, is how do you measure the angle with the blade tilted like that? If you're following an established bevel, it doesn't seem like it'd be an issue, but if you're trying for an exact angle (reprofiling) seem like it would be hard to measure.

Also, per this post, I'm assuming the angle on the straight part will remain constant for the same reason it does if the straight part is mounted normally in the vice?

Thanks,
Dan
