Want to see how it works??
Using the tilt table is probably the closest to free grinding a knife maker can get while still having the angle support of a jig. All the knife maker has to do is to scribe center lines on the edge of the blade and then place the knife blank onto the table. While keeping the blade flat against the table move the blade up until it is in contact with the belt. Then start grinding while carefully keeping an eye on the scribed center line being careful not to grind past the line. It is that simple. A sharp coarse grit belt is recommended for rough grinding then a finer grit belt can be used to polish the bevels.
