I would like to recall the message below. The Adjustable Stop could be added to a self-centering Jig
"It isn't rocket science surely?"
Quote from: Sir Amwell on December 01, 2022, 12:26:16 AMI appreciate previous comments but there is a glaringly obvious issue here. And we should not be afraid to call it out. The new KJ 45 jig is really good for centring most everyday knives be they thin or thick on the blade stock. But it is really compromised for its lack of adjustment on the jig protrusion. The old svm jigs were great for adjusting jig protrusion and no good for centring thin or thick knives. And they are knife jigs. Remember that.
So why not the best of both? Let's challenge Tormek to do the right thing and produce a self centring jig with the ability to adjust the stop. It isn't rocket science surely?

I have successfully used the link twice. It's a puzzle. Please post if anyone is having further trouble with it and I will investigate further.

I'd wager they come from the not-so-controlled up-down movement. The fact that it has to be there at all ...
Remarkable observation, supported by the idea that the up-down grinding should cause this. In my opinion this is fatal for this method unless you practice and recover a lot.

What has that got to do with anything? Putz.
I didn't think his jig setting was "good speed".

... he has a good speed and workflow on his Tormek.
Huh? It takes him 14 minutes before he sharpens his first knife. ???
Thank you.
I had already found out more about the terminology: The basics of drilling
Interesting essay, but I need pictures to fully understand it. In addition, names such as 'web', 'split point', 'modified split point' and ''secondary point angles' referring to a part of a drill are completely unknown to me. That is of course also due to the fact that English is not my native language, but also that I am a layman or at most a hobbyist in the craft field. Links to referenced articles might also help.
I hope you will comply, as your knowledge of the subject is apparently of great interest to those members of this forum.
Yes, completely agree, the lack of the ability to set the projection distance with the KJ jig is significantly more time consuming and a big mistake.
Amusing  :)
I added a link in my first post of this topic:
"Finally, Benjamin has posted an extensive and amusing explanation  ..."
Under the date header '20230505', I added info, including URLs, about Benjamin's graphics in my topic "Simple adjustment ..."

I'll remove the link couple of days later
Hello Benjamin
Congratulations on your simulation of my angle setting formula.
I didn't understand your post, probably because I'm not familiar with 'GeoGebra'.
However, your explanation and the diagram in the new link gave the clarity I was missing.
You are right that it might explain a lot to new users especially regarding reference points. That's why I would be sorry if you removed the link. I would like you to add the link with some explanation as 'reply' to my topic, the link of which you will find in my 'signature',
Thanks in advance for your effort.

that function is built into the tool.
and that's an additional feature that Tormek's new angle-adjuster lacks  ;)
It helps if you describe what the use is and how you use it. ;)
