I'm liking it, especially that stone set up. :)

Considering the construction of Billy's new set up, maybe stone-hinge?

Nice looking setup Billy. I see you no longer have the bar-longer than base- problem

When I first wrote it, I thought it was just a language joke.

But now I think this is much, much more serious.

Compare Chris' photographs to the real Stonehenge... Scary or intended?... And a good sense of history?

Lol! I do believe it does bear an eerie resemblance!

I totally concur Billabong, that the base needs to be modded... It makes sharpening so much easier! One of the things I really like about my settup is that I can change it to any direction I want, which is extremely helpful when I am sharpening edc's (because I like to have my groove pattern angled back towards the heel of the blade), so I just spin the blade arounduin the panavise so the tip is pointing at me, angle it down, and I have a nice platform for sweeping the paddle away from me still. Another thing about the panavise... I will be drilling 2 holes in it so that way I can take it with me when camping or something and screw it into a log, adjust my tilt, and go to work :-)

I will say that the panavise is the most stable thing I have found out there to date!

Wow,

I like both of these, Billy, very nice job and I do love the colorful Stonehinge.

The Panavise looks like a very good match for the WE.

Thinking about the WE it is one of those amazing products that is both perfect (or nearly perfect) out of the box but at the same time has a huge fan base with endless modifications of all types. I compare this to cars. There are are lot of good "factory" cars, a lot that are known for being customs, but not so many that are classified as both.

Good to see your serious side Mark. ;)

Some believe these stones have magic powers also!

Thanks for all the comments.
Not sure if I'm in love with it's looks?
But I like the functionality.

I saw the vise setup posted a while back, I like it but I wanted a rest for the arms and I had this big, round chopping block that wasn't being used.

As for "ergonomics" Phil, you took one quote from that link, I prefer this one.
"Today, however, the word is used to describe the science of "designing the job to fit the worker, not forcing the worker to fit the job."

It is the knife "tip" area that concerned me, I felt like I didn't have enough control there when the WEPS is flat.
I didn't have a need to rotate the mount laterally.

I'm still not sure where the level of tilt feels the most comfortable.
I found some old chair legs here.


I agree it needs to be solid and have a bit of weight for stability.
Looks like a bit of a party is going on with all the colours though. ;)
"STONEHINGE" Pffft!


I do like the Panavice, think I might do something similar, but with a slab of stone as a base.
Wetstones and wood don't mix. :lol:

Is there a copyright on Stonehenge?

Apple don't own it, do they?
