    You are honing on the stabilizer, (end of edge is well past stabilizer edge, RED arrow), keeping the heel half of the blade off the stone.

    This accounts for the thin bevel at the heel, the wear on the spine at the toe and the wavy frowning edge. Trying to get the heel honed, they just added more pressure and ground the spine and wonky edge, needlessly.

    Re-shape the heel to bring the end of the edge well before the stabilizer 1/8 to ľ inch will take the stabilizer out of play, (BLUE arrow) and allow the heel half of the blade to lay flat on the stone.

    It is a simple process on a diamond pate that takes but, a few minutes, there are several good posts on reshaping the heel.

    Ducks are thin so be careful with your pressure.

    Picture you are referencing is prior to my honing. I fixed it, just forgot to include in the laundry list of repairs done and yet to be done. So, no I'm not honing on the stabilizer.

    Took a stainless Hess 44, down tonite.
    Flatten the scales, clean the blade up / wipe the grunge off. Pin it back up with original wedge and 3rd pin spacer, using silver nickle rod, SS under collar washers.

    A little routing and turning tonight.
    Practice pieces to make sure proportions and scale are correct before i commit to more exotic woods.

    Needed to tweak the quick change tool post to fit on the new slide.
    This makes short work of bit swaps so Iíve put it off long enough.

    Still need to grind the bottom, and add the 10/24 t slot mounting locates in the corners but will work fine.

    Thanks Mike.
    Finger gets in the way more than it’s useful at the moment but getting better every day, and not slowing me down either.

    What in tarnation happened to your finger? Glad to hear you're on the mend!

    I have to use up my remaining PTO, so the next few days I'll hopefully get a couple razors rescaled (with pics!)

    Snow blower auger clearance argument.
    We shall say there was an interference fit. Hehe.
