This guy has a good idea .
i am always looking for trays and things to contain the swarf juice
without having a tub and a board across it .
well for $2 its not bad http://www.limepic.com/img/im000786.jpghttp://www.limepic.com/img/img0728.jpg

Yeah. I love the tray that Jon sells. It has some rubber blocks that come with it, too so you can accommodate different bases, etc. in a variety of different ways.

I am using these ancient bakelite trays that my father-in-law gave me. he first got them in 1951 and used them in the science classes he taught for dissecting things. He is very glad to see they have a new purpose in the 21st Century

:shrug:

I just put a nonstick mat on my countertop and put the stone on that. Wipe up the counter when I am done. At work I use a wet side towel under and then folded on top of a third pan (1/2 deep). Again put the stone right on top.

Then again neither location includes a wife or girlfriend to have a problem with what I am doing.

Either one of those is a game changer, in my experience. Even when using a tub and board I get dirty looks.

I put a towel under and over an $.89 brick. Gives me knuckle clearance and the towels catch any residue. I never thought to ask my wife her opinion on the matter! :)

The low front rail is nice, but I don't see how that would be useful, especially with a large knife, other than with a single stone in one of the two center positions

that guy is a wood worker so that works for him
I thought the idea was interesting .
for us are stones have to be more pronounced for are angle of attack.

Yeah, that would be a pretty sweet setup for woodworking tools.
