Regarding my videos we now come to what I think are the most important for many as they show my grinding rests being used for sharpening workshop tools. I say important, as it has become apparent that some have made one but are not fully sure how to use them. This is not unreasonable, as I consider that sharpening workshop tools is, overall, the most varied of all workshop activities.

I have ten which I have already prepared, just possibly there may be one or two more. The one which I am making public this time is, not surprisingly, “An Introduction to the Rests. A link to this can be found here **LINK**

In view of the importance of these videos I am publicising them on all of the English speaking forums which have links to my website. Does anyone have links with a non English speaking forum, if so, I would appreciate it if you can give my videos, particularly those for the grinding rests, a mention.

Could you leave one of the arms at 8mm thickness and just have one at 3mm? I know that this asymmetry may not be as pleasing to look at but it would reduce the amount of work needed to do the modifications.

That should be perfectly OK Martin as we are only attempting to accommodate very small dimensional differences between the parts at either end. A single 3mm arm should have more than enough flex-ability to cope with the differences.

I'm all for reducing the work involved, time is all too short.
