Quote from: john.jcb on July 11, 2020, 04:10:09 PMWe have seen a number of threads over the past months on calculations to set the USB height to achieve a specific grinding angle. I do not want to upset anyone with my questions but I am wondering what are the actual differences between the various methods presented? For someone that is sharpening knives using the Kenjig concept is there any practical difference? I have been using a single calculator and have not tried the different ones that have been presented and my edges have all seemed consistent and after honing exceptionally sharp.

As an example, if what reads as 15° is actually 16° (or 14°), If the error is constant, we can either live with it or compensate for it. If that is the case, it doesn't seem any more of a problem than a mariner correcting his magnetic compass.Ken

Maybe we should return to the simplicity of the Anglemaster until the calculator designers work the bugs out. I believe that day will come.Ken
