My main use for this would be using it to get a more precise angle when I'm honing along with the honing calculator that Vadim used in one of his video. The extra sharpness he got out of the knife after using the FVB was pretty impressive.
Quote from: RichColvin on February 20, 2022, 03:41:26 PMI am working to put together an offering for this & a few other items like Rick's pin pivot jig. As I look at the prices for various metals, aluminum is significantly less expensive than stainless steel, so I will be able to offer a FVB in aluminum for much less than stainless steel. Also, if the two rods are threaded, that adds a lot to the cost. So what I am looking at as options are: Stainless steel block with stainless steel threaded rods orAluminum block with straight, unthreaded rods (like the original universal support bars)The stainless steel will probably be 2x the cost of the aluminum one. Which would be preferred?Rich
Quote from: TireguyfromMA on February 19, 2022, 10:51:20 PMHi,With that said, can anyone advise me if the FVB jig is still available to purchase? I see this as the next tool I must have for my T8.Thanks!
Quote from: Nico on October 21, 2022, 11:11:43 PMAt the risk of re-asking the obvious...I too was interested in the FVB. It's claim was "Controlled-angle honing and edge-trailing grinding of knives, cleavers and wide blades".OK, so I am using the USB in the standard horizontal position on my T8 for honing. When switching from grinding to honing, I adjust the wheel diameter on the AngleMaster to 215mm and re-set the USB horizontal distance using that tool, the same way as I use it for setting the edge angle when grinding with USB in the vertical base.I've assumed that this process will give me accurate control of the honing angle, but now wondering with the FVB's claims whether that approach has been wrong?Aside from the other virtues of the product (e.g. better ergonomics, overcoming the interference with the jig screws, working with KG's software to get more accurate and repeatable results, etc. etc.) do I need the FVB to get a better honing angle than my current method?
