    This video went fast and the details were not stressed. But, it seems the reversed chip plate was used along the guide on the grinder to hold the edge square. It I missed the point, I will gladly appreciate the correction.

    I wish we could have gotten more video from Larry before he retired and passed his tools off. If Larry wants to tell it or show it, I want to listen or watch!
