    I recently purchased a used 121 and was wondering where you have the stone hit the blade to get the best edge. Would it be towards the center of the blade, closer to the honed edge, or more towards the top of the blade. Also, does anyone have a users manual that has instructions for this as I would be willing to reimburse someone for a copy.

    I have it set so that it keeps the same angle. If you have it too low it will make the angle steep & too high it will make it a long pitch. These things can change the amount of lift.

    since it's only a 8" wheel, start at the edge and work your way back
