Weet nie hoe lyk hulle nie. Maar dankie sal kyk. Ek sukkel met die angles..

http://www.rausch-engineering.co.za/blade-buddy.html

Hyít Ďn guide waarteen jy jou mes hou en die guide kan teen amper enige relevante hoek gestel word, of jy kan net teen die belt slyp. Ek gebruik myne al amper twintig jaar en is nog steeds op die eerste belt.

@Tampan - vertel my meer van die masjien

R2100 - dis mos 'n pis goeie prys vir so ding --- band sander? 

kry mens verskillende belde - wat se grein vir messe?  werk die ding goed?  reken mens kan vinnig kak aanjaag met daai electric motor.  maar daai ding kan mos alles doen?  hone die lem net so bietjie as jy klaar is?

Sub.
Got a got a Universal Lansky, and a Ken Onion Work Sharp Electric. Lansky is good and so is the KOWSE but a couple of notes, Lansky took me a while to use properly and takes time to sharpen a blade well if it is rather dull, KOWSE is quick but as with most shortcuts has some drawbacks, you can remove too much material, like my buddy did when he borrowed it. He stuffed up a Benchmade, I find I get great sharpness but not as good as using stones. I like the look of that Blade Buddy, interested to know more about the available grits on belts.

I love my lansky and I actually find it relaxing to spend time honing knives. Once you've got the blade ground in on the angle you prefer then every second week or so I just spend 2-3min running it over with the finest diamond stone in my kit.
My cheapy folding blade I carry every day I hone at a 30deg angle as this is my use for everything and abuse knife so the edge takes a bit of a beating. My all my other knives are done at 25deg with the exception being my one filleting knife which I do at 20deg. I like having all my knives sharp enough to shave with.

What is next on my radar to buy though is that Worksharp belt sharpener as per one of the pics posted earlier. A friend has one and man it is just amazing.
edit: I should add here same as Mox said above that it is super easy to stuff up a blade with one of these. My intended use for this would be kitchen knives and all my meatworking knives that get used in hunting season etc.

Hein, ek het myne omtrent 20 jaar gelede gekoop en twee belde saam met hom gekry. Ek sal moet kyk watter grein hulle is, maar hulle redelik fyn, so hy vat nie sommer 'n hap uit jou lem uit nie. As jy 'n nuwe hoek wil inslyp neem dit so bietjie tyd, maar as die lem se hoek reg is, slyp hy hom baie lekker vinnig.
As jy jou lem net so bietjie wil op touch, hou jy hom net teen die belt en nie op die guide nie, dan sit hy 'n baie mooi edge op.

Die lekker van die Blade Buddy is dat hy vinnig en sonder baie effort slyp. Ek hou ook baie daarvan om my Lansky te gebruik, maar ek het nie altyd so baie tyd om te spandeer nie.

Find it👍👍

Will this work. Old warthog..

I have one of these. I  also bought finer stones and the accessory to sharpen serrated blades. It takes a bit of time to set up and use, but sharpening knives on it is quite therapeutic. Also great for scissors and tools. My chisels can slice paper like Rambo's knife in First Blood.
Why do things that only happen to stupid people always happen to me?

Hein, see if you can find a Blade Buddy. Best knife sharpening investment Iíve ever made.
I have a Warthog, Lansky, etc, etc, but if youíre really looking for  quick solution, nothing beats the Blade Buddy, especially if youíre processing a large quantity of meat, for instance and donít have a lot of time to spend on sharpening. The Blade Buddy, together with a high quality steel rod and a strop works exceptionally well.
You obviously have to take care to learn how to use it properly and to get skilled in sharpening at the correct angle. I use it on anything, from scissors, table knives, kitchen knives, folding pocket knives and even my Leathermans.
Even knives on which the cutting edge is really stuffed up, no problem.
That looks good,  thank you, perfect for a Everyday Working Blade.

Hein, I'm going to reply in English, if you don't mind.
It's a 762mm x 25mm belt and definitely not your everyday paper type, but rather a soft, high quality material type belt. They are available locally and you should be able to find them in all the different grits, backing materials, etc. The Blade Buddy manufacturer should also be able to point you in the right direction, or will probably carry stock themselves.

Below is a photo of mine and as mentioned earlier, I've been using this belt for almost 20 years now. I'll see if I can find the spare somewhere - it should have the specs on the inside still.

Vang hom maar met my oog. Dit is vleiswerk messe so gee nie baie om nie. Sal nou nie my duur messe op hom sluip nie. Gebruik  lansky of wetstones vir dit.

Wats die maklikste, fool proof vinnigste manier om messe en byle skerp te hou. Tevredecmet 90%. Soek nie perfeksie nie. Die lui mens sin.

OK, ek soek die teenoorgestelde van KiLRoy. Ek gee nie om om tyd te spandeer nie. Is maar onhandig en wil nie die messe opmors nie. Die messe is meestel Joseph Rodgers, Taylor Eye, Victrinox ens. Ek het nog n vet krediet by Safari and Outdoor so dit sal help as hulle jul aanbeveling aanhou.

Riebeek - Is jou messe stomp of wil jy dit net skerp hou?

Net skerp hou. Meeste in hul boksies, maar die draad maak dat ek hulle wil begin gebruik.
