The optional skew registration jig locks into the Veritas Mk.II honing guide to make quick work of setting both skew and bevel angles (left- or right-hand) of chisel and plane blades.
The jig's machined aluminum base provides skew angle markings that are laser etched for accuracy and legibility. The skew angle graduations cover the range of 10° to 45° in 5° increments, and there are additional marks (18°, 22°, 28°) to cover the angles of popular skew plane blades.
The base has four distinct tracks providing four bevel angle settings: 20°, 25°, 30° and 35°. (A micro-bevel can be created with the honing guide’s eccentric roller axle mount.) The unique sliding fence with blade stop allows you to match an existing skew angle visually – even if it is non-standard. For use with the standard head only – the narrow-blade clamping head’s parallel jaws are not designed for sharpening skews.
