I've tried what was in the original post, (adjusting every time you switch sides) it can be done, but it's a pain, easy to lose track, and I like to do alternating passes at the end, so it's not the best option for me.Someone in the forum made a sleeve that was thicker on one side, that slid onto the SVM jig, so that when you flipped the knife over, it stayed the same.

If that is the case I just got the SVM-45 and will give it a go and see how it works on one of my chunky chopper blades and hopefully proof that concept works.
