I cannot sharpen the knives because the base plate is on the way of the file when I position it at the same angle of the knife's edge

I could file the base plate to align it with the knife angle , but that seems like a dirty job.

Why others can file it without this obstacle?

You'll never get those knife egdes out without destroying them, and yeah you gotta file part of the bridge.


"I've got to update this part. I quit worrying about the bottom of the plate long ago. The pics show me taping off the bottom of the plate but currently I file the plate right along with the knife. It allows the angle of the file to be closer to the original angle of the knife and actually stabilizes the file and keeps it truer when filing. I'll try to update soon. "

"Sharpen" is not the most appropriate word, since they must not be sharp but slightly rounded. The edges had a dent at the point of contact with the post, so I just reshaped it.

"ping" is the sound at the beginning of Pink Floyd's Echoes . "pingfloid" is how you would say Pink Floyd in Spanish 😄
