Welcome Home

Well my angle cube arrived on Saturday ,or in this case to be more accurate it is a "Bevel Box" same thing as far as I know .

First chance to play with it tonight . First impressions , it's very reassuring to be able to be really accurate with the angles . I think the marks on the Edge Pro are best used as a Guide and of course my stones are now getting a little wear on them. With the angle cube it is very quick and easy to check the exact angle of each stone as you put it on the machine .

As I am still new to Edge Pro'ing I do find the reassurance that my angles are accurately set to be helpful and then to check the finished result with the loupe makes the job very much easier .

That's not too bad. I might get me one some time. Could well be usefull in the workshop with getting angles on grinds and scales and such.

You are right Manx about the dishing of the stones someone else told me about this when I bought the system.

I bought the Edge Pro stone leveling kit , in fact I have since bought the whole Edge Pro set including the Diamond stones ! May start collecting the aftermarket  Shapton's etc next . Would have tried these before but they are so expensive over here .

John...

Angle Cube is a great addition...congrats. Now...as to your stone wear. As they wear, they will "cup", meaning they will end up thick on the ends, and thin in the middle. Angle cube will take your angle off the metal plate on the back of your stone. It will not help with worn stones. What you want is one of THESE This plate will keep your stones level and maintain your angles. You can get stoopid expensive ones, but this one has done me well thus far. I would strongly suggest picking one of these up to maintain your stones, my friend.

Alexander... THIS is the one I picked up...although I have no idea what shipping might be for you.

Hi Alexander , it was £28 from Amazon . There are a few different ones on the market but this one is the only one I have tried . So far I am very happy with it I find that as my Edge Pro stones wear and start to differ in thickness it is useful to be able to check the angle with each stone .

That's pretty cool. How much did that set you back? Because I'm very interested in something like that for my workshop.

Yes Jan, 

and no !

The yes is it's for setting the angle to sharpen at but it is used on my Edge Pro . So it is somewhat different .

This video show's how it work's , though his machine has a lot more play than mine. I have only used the Bevel Box twice now but I am impressed with the results . Also in the states these things retail at $30 , a little more here, but well worth it to me .
