Jim,I have a carbide file guide that I made after reading one of Bruce's Wips and he told us about it. I tried to set tang shoulders on a Blaze belt and it cut rite into the carbide so I would avoid touching the face of the belt with the carbide but I have had no problems using it on the side of the belt as a plunge line guide. I just use Aluminum Oxide to set the shoulders on a narrow or hidden tang.
Sorry for the off-topic but I am so glad to hear you say that Bruce. I am the same and I thought it was only due to my poor skill level.I hollow grind most everything and the wheel is easier to work with than a platen.

To get back to topic, I will get one of your guides in the not too distant future for sure. :35:
Thanks Bruce. Put me down for one then. Or do I need to order from another thread?
You are right. Love everything about the hollow grind. Curves is where it's at so what could be better than another way to add some. Plus even with a shallow grind you get so much more control and feedback or where you are at because of the "groove".
Hey, Bruce. Any idea how long they are delayed on production? I ordered about 3 weeks ago. It's no rush at all, and I'm not worried about it in the least, knowing that good things come to those who wait .
However, I do have a project on hold, and I need to determine if I should wait for the guide to get here or go ahead with what I've got. I emailed Krista but hadn't heard back. Thanks!
