Cheers, Alf
Yeah - better wait for this one....

Rob, yip, lots of doodahs and traffic lights too......
So, when and how much? US$ will do and I'll multiply by 2ish.

Rob,

That is a fascinating picture! Will it use the correct side of the blade for registration (ie unlike nearly every honing guide out there at the moment - which use the wrong side)? It looks as if it just might and that would be a huge plus in my mind.

Holy doodahs, Batman :shock:

Back bevels?! You've gone bevel-up crazy and now you're providing means for accurate back bevels? Far out, man. 8) Okay, so I didn't believe you, but my interest is slightly engaged... :roll:

Hi Noel -

Please don't let Martin see this thread.... :shock:

Pricing hasn't been finalised yet - heck, we don't even get a pre-production approval casting for the last part until the end of next week. This guide has the most complex tooling we've ever done...

My guess is it'll certainly be no more than 5-8 pounds more than the current one... but pls forget that asap!

When is either soon.... or much much later. My guess there is "soon". We expect to approve the last mold next week, and if we do - it rolls immediately into production. We'll make sure Brimarc get some quickly!

So - probably June would be safe....

Cheers -

Rob

Hi -

It uses the back, cutting edge, and a portion of one side to register....

Will take a #8 plane blade too....

Hmm, is Derek getting insider info? :-k Or isn't this the UK Workshop exclusive I hoped it was...? :? Anyway, I'll just go and divide this thread and give this half a better title so there's no excuse... :p [There, all done]

Cheers, Alf

P.S. One wouldn't presume to have connections :-#

But

Oh yes they are... Try "View more Emoticons" under the Emoticons in the Post a Reply window.

Ah, I feared as much. The content isn't a patch on the presentation... :|

Well double "duh" #-o So the traffic lights adjust the position of the clamp in relation to the wheel...? That's interesting. :-k

Ok... I can do that too..... [-X

The "traffic lights" don't adjust anything :roll: .... they indicate how one has set the "coarse" guide adjustment (the guide has a two-piece frame)...

I hope the 18th of April... but if there's a mold issue, I'll pretend I meant May.... :whistle:

Yeah, all right, all right. Just like traffic lights don't stop traffic, they just indicate it should stop... :roll: Picky.

Derek, have I created a monster? 8-[ They weren't all there all along; we've had a recent forum upgrade and move to a new server. Worth checking out the Site Updates etc forum occasionally and you never know what delights you'll find. :D

Looks interesting: judging by the 'Dewalt-esque' colours, I presume at least one of the knobs tunes the built in radio? :lol:

At the risk of being called "lyn-esque" I would love an interchangeable roller.

For curved (e.g. scrub plane) blades, it's very useful to be able to tilt
whilst sharpening. This is easy with the current Eclipse model, and even easier with an old Marple guide I own, which has a crowned roller...

A narrow crowned roller on a suitably long axle would be a nice (cost-plus) option, for us unusual-blade owners.
