I then do finally honing on stones, not even using the actually Tormeck machine.

So I guess my real question is: have you heard of or can you see any issues with using the blade and chisel jig or other jigs on it?

Here's a link to the instructions, where they only list certain jigs

Hi Rutager

Ahha ..

I have this on my website, article written 5 years ago ...

That will give you an idea how I use mine.
