Just wondering if people use the normal roller to create a camber (small camber for smoothing planes) or if they use another means? like the additional camber roller? or maybe you default back to using the Eclipse style guides?

I have both rollers and have never considered trying to camber a blade with the non-camber roller. However, now I'm in long trousers, I sharpen freehand more often than not :lol: :wink:

For a slight camber I find I can make it by simply moving the pressure as I use the standard roller. Big camber though I use the additional one.
