Quote from: Scotty on April 19, 2020, 12:50:59 PMI am interested in the eccentric bushing -and also the SVM45 clamping knob modification that jvh has made.I would imagine that the bushing must be custom machined.Does the large knob modification serve any particular purpose or offer any advantage over the factory model?Thanks

Quote from: Victor4159I'm able to sharpen all of my knives on an SG-45 "as-is" and an SG-45 with 0.5mm removed from the static side of the clamp. I got the info from KG's website, and it's the 2nd one in their jigs with milled static clamps. I only sharpen my knives and some friend's knives, but I've never had nor been given a knife thicker than 3.3 mm at the spine to sharpen. The 2 with the thickest spines are a Benchmade AFO II at 3.25 mm and a Global Cleaver at 3.18 mm. I sharpen every knife from 2.3 mm to 3.3 mm using the one modified SG-45. Perhaps you can get a price to have one jig milled. I spent about $10-12 bucks for a spark plug gap tool that has 32 different gap sizes; the "shims" work great for maintaining identical bevels on both sides of the blade. I also use the shims on both sides of the jig from the jig towards the knife tip when sharpening filet knives that aren't wide enough to accommodate the large jig as the thicker shims work well for keeping thin knife blades from flexing due to the pressure against the stone.
