Jose,
Congrats on your new possession. Sorry I haven't posted photos. My camera is over 1,000 miles away! I'll be gone for the summer. Maybe next year. Check out photos linked to other posts. I think you only begin to understand the HobbiGoni after you've used it on many knives, and especially at various stages of sharpening, or re-sharpening the same knife. It would be instructive to take a knife that's been damaged or purposely dulled, then examine with the HobbiGoni at each stage of re-sharpening. Maybe next year when I have my HobbiGoni and camera and knives in the same place I'll do! I don't understand "measure each side independently". The instrument shows both sides, one on each side of the scale so you can examine, compare each side.
Tom

Tom,

I just found what I asked about just measure only one side at a time. Just by leaning the blade to either side while in place in the HG it will read the actual side angle.

Jose, I once had similar difficulties to yours and did a blog post on it. I don't know if it helps you, but here's a story and some pictures on the use of a goniometer: moleculepolishing.wordpress.com/2012/05/...n-the-fallkniven-a1/

Yesterday I remembered seeing that article before and just look at it and read it again. It does help me clarify some of my doubts. Thanks Mark.
