Good design, lots of room for material optimization though. The main plate does not need to be that thick :( Also unfortunately my build plate is 150mm so i had to re-engineer a few parts. Also I'm unwilling to buy bearings and a suction cup so i think I will remake most of the parts.

Thanks for your work! But need more instructions :)

What are the magnets for?

Magnets are used to hold your knife and plastic plate is only used to adjust position of the knife.
On attached photo knife is clipped, because this one is really heavy and magnets are not strong enough. Though magnets work just fine for most ok knifes

Does anyone know a good container to store the grinding stones?
They are really cheap(Chinese) and I have a lot of them in different boxes.
Nearly all have a part made of plastic which is bent heavily. I removed it and made one of solid aluminium by myself. Then I gued the grind stone on it. 2€/$ and 20 minute of work for a very good grind stone.

I would love to see them in nice boxes with printed labels....

Ok built it, now let's do some sharpening! Thank you for this awesome design! It all fits beautifully

I was thinking about buying the apex or built it myself. Thanx for the tip on clones! i bought one ;)

lol i got the clone now, and totally understand the upgrade you are presenting here. I will print this ;) thanx

Thank you for great original project!
