This is really interesting to me. I have a chronic bursal inflammation in a shoulder and that makes sharpening with the WEPS a bit difficult sometimes.

Could you elaborate a bit more on how your arm rests work? Also, I've got no idea what water noodles are.

A photograph would be really helpful.

Thanx!
Mark.

I think he means a rest for the rods...
I am curious about how he attaches these to the base

I use 95% of the stuff listed through this topic but no one has listed gloves. I bought a dozen pairs of Kevlar gloves because I was beginning to look like I had been on the losing side of a knife fight. Believe me since I have been wearing them I have slipped a lot and the gloves saved me from some old fashioned blood letting. Protects well against slashing cuts with some good pressure and mild pokes with the tip. I donated one pair to see how much it would take to cut them and I was pretty impressed with my sharpest knife fresh off the WE it did not cut all the way through the top layer and the rubber coated palms did not make through that side either. Just my .02 worth

Any specifics on the gloves? Brand, model, photos, where you got them?

I have some shooting gloves with Kevlar lining... and some others with various slash/puncture resistant linings. A bit of insurance when working up hot loads with pistols. But I wouldn't say that they are very good for tasks that require dexterity or a delicate sense of touch. That is why I ask about specifics. I would have to check them out to see if they look like I could sharpen with them on...

Good idea though... I have cut myself using the WEPS... not so much lately. I have learned to respect the process.

Good tip.

Mark tested a glove once also, you might find of interest...

The final cut I got was a small one but on a big 14" butcher knife and it was in slow motion as the very tip "just enough to draw blood" of my little finger nicked the blade and went flying through the air.
I still catch myself every now and then on the blades but I am trying to go a bit faster to keep the production line at the farmers market going. Gotta make fun money. So safety is key because cuts will slow me down there and open wounds working at the hospital is not on my list of a good idea either.

Ansell HyFlex 11-500 Kevlar Cut Resistant Gloves

I bought them on eBay a year or so ago for $25.00 for 12 pairs of them I think they are $36 now. I looked up the cut ratings and the cut pressures needed to cut through this specific pair and they boiled down to what I thought I needed. There are some other pairs out there with a much better cut and stab resistance but I was not going to shell out $85 - $125 for one pair. Any way you go with safety gloves is a lot cheaper than stitches will be.

You can look through this and see if they might be the pair for you. I have to save my money for the new serrated sharpening stone and some water stones that is why theses appealed to my needs.

I will have to see whether I can get some.
There is a great idea here. Not sure if my already fumble finger hands could deal with the interference.

One never knows until they try!!
