finally it is here …….
the clamp with which you can always clamp your knife in the middle.
Gone are the days when you milled material out of the Tormek clamp or placed valve plates underneath to clamp the knife in a centered manner.
This is no longer necessary here with this bracket.
Because the jaws move towards each other when the clamp is closed, the knife is automatically clamped in the middle.
The glued-in rubber is just a first suggestion from me.
The knife is held well.
However, I am open to any suggestions for improvement here.
I will also work with different rubber compounds and adhesive techniques to find the optimum.
ATTENTION: Due to its design, this clamp is not suitable for knives that do not have a blade width of at least 25mm. With shorter knives such as pocket knives, filleting knives and the like, the clamp touches the stone at a flat angle. Through tests with 1.5 mm thick rubber, an angle of max 17 degrees could be achieved on a filleting knife that sticks out 15mm from the clamp. “Normal” Knives, on the other hand, do not pose any problems.
