    Making a wedge

    Ways to make wedges


    Ive made a couple scales and wedges now. I know that the wedge is barely a wedge shape and when making the wedge i put it between the scales with no pinning and see that the space at the pivot end has an inch of space when pinching the wedge in the scales. Is this about the aproximate spacing or should it be less? Now this helps to determin the wedge shape.

    Main question is how do you determin the thinnest part of the wedge. The angle of the wedge (wedge shape) is simple enough to figure but this dont help with the thinnest part of it. Let say all you have is the blade. Razor came with no scales. So nothing to compare too. Sorry, i did this in a hurry. Hope its understandable.

    What is your opinion?
