No I don't. But my measurement tools are crude. I have not done any controlled testing either, such as number of strokes required to get the same results based on the ability to test that I do have.
I still keep thinking about building one of those sharpness testers.
I really like to "see" what is going on, but I guess the real criteria for sharpness is in the cutting ability of a blade.

BTW, thanks Clay for doing this!

You're welcome. I've been thinking a lot about building one of these testers as well. I'm a little short on space at the moment but I'd love to have on right next to my sharpening set up and microscopes to further extend the testing I do. It would be quantify the impact of stropping at the same angle as the sharpening vs. stropping at a lower or higher angle. There are dozens of ways in which it would be helpful for testing.

I have a similar situation... no place to put the thing in use... or to store it when not in use.

A little off topic, but could you share a bit about your microscope setup and how you are getting the images?

Welcome

Clay has a microscope capable of 2000x magnification. How he sets it up, I do not know.

Welcome to the forum.

Here's an older thread on the microscope when he first got it you might find interesting... 2000x Microscope.

The scope has a built in 10MP camera that connects to the computer via USB. All the USB microscopes have their own software for processing the images, making measurements etc...

I like the stand you have for your microscope I have the Veho 400x which is more of a toy and takes a bit of setting up although I guess in the vice clamp of the WE would be easier I am mounting the blades on bits of specially cut battening at the moment .
Still the Veho is good enough for the moment !

A lot of people do really well with the Veho scopes and they make a great, affordable solution to help visualize the effects of technique and tools. I've found modeling clay to be a great aid in positioning knives for photography and microscopy. You put a little lump of clay underneath the parts that need support, usually a little more than needed and then press down on the knife to create a stable platform. Usually you get a nice imprint from details in the blade/handle that make it easy to re-position the knife to see the same area again at the same angle. That said, the stand for the Dino-Lite scopes is really good and definitely worth the money. The fine height adjustment makes focusing pretty easy.
