First machined bevel!

Well it took me all day and 7 test blades but I finally got the bevel fixture tuned in and working nicely!

The texture you see on the blade can't be felt at all with your fingertips, should sand out very quickly! The tip will be getting by hand on the belt grinder, then blended into the rest of the blade!

Because the bevel angle is so shallow if something is off even 0.001" it will be very noticeable. I had to lap 0.0015" off one side of the back of the fixture to tune the angle in to perfection!

Really pleased this worked out so well, wasn't really sure it was going to work at all!
