Well I couldn't resist could I? I looked for http://www.leevalley.com/home/temprl/mkll-2.jpg. Suddenly this obscure comment becomes clear. That's the version that's 500K. The one I was waiting an age to download was the 1538K one. ](*,) Rob, feel free to make use of the #-o smilie in your own time...Rob Lee":11xarnyx said:

P.S. Firefox users on dial-up - might I suggest the "Pong" and "Clines" extensions to kill time whilst you're waiting for large images to download. FWIW.
OK, what I'd like to see is a 3mm Japanese chisel in that lovely looking bit of metalwork, just to be sure it does what the old version lacked Any chance?Rob Lee":2vb6gvfo said:

- be good to see the results if you find someone to try it out At least 3mm is the narrowest I have so far!
8)I pulled a 3mm from stock - it measured 3.00mm wide near the tip. It tapers outward on all sides towards the handle. One side was acute to the reference surface ( back of blade) one side was obtuse to the reference surface.
I set it up for a 30 degree angle and honed the bevel flat. I disassembled and reset it up. I honed a second time. The bevel face was identical to the first. I then disassembled ( removed the registration jig, moved the stop position) and gave it to Ewan to set up to a 30 degree angle - gave him no instruction on set up other than to say the angle required was 30 degrees. His set-up produced the identical bevel angle.
Set up was straight forward. 3mm didn't seem to pose a problem in terms of holding the blade secure and upright.
We did test the 1/4" Japanese Chisel during validation testing with no issues.
I suspect the 1.5mm would not set up so easily and consistently. The blade could be pushed into the slot on the registration and the registration surface on the back of the blade is so small it would be hard to ensure consistent perpendicularity. However the bevel surface is so small it would be easy to sharpen a new bevel face each set-up even if was slightly different each time.
