Nice product placement, does Evian work better than normal tap water or is that just a la-de-da London thing :lol:

Change your sanding disc as well you tight git, must leave nice burn marks

Here is the ULTIMATE set up for honing a oval boltered mortice chisel :D


(I posted this on a forum about a year ago for a lark and bugger me if someone doesn't offer it to FWW mag recently as a tip, and it is published! :roll: )

Nice one Derek - great minds think alike! It will be interesting to see if my tongue in cheek comment on t'other side will result in a suggestion in a WW mag in a couple of months time! I was actually going to suggest the wixey but the mitutoyo at around £200 was a lot more expensive :D I never actually found how much the Ludeca Inclineo cost - with a resolution of 0.0003 degrees it seemed the ideal tool for calibrating the mitutoyo which only has a resolution of +/- 0.1 degrees.
