Default Re: Sharpener length gauge distances

Hi Toad, I don't know without pulling up the cad file to calculate exactly. But it would be shorter than .875" since that is 50 degrees. .750" I bet would be pretty close and it is an easier number to remember. Instead of going shorter with the length that the graver is sticking out we can instead just raise the height that the template sets or lower the stone height. Or you can do a combination of both. Whatever you do, do it for all the facets (small and large template) so that the heels come out parallel.
