Not hard,let the blade do the work. Keep honing oil on it all over stone. Try to slowly shave the stone,watch the oil,you'll start shaving oil
Keep oil on stone,if oil gets dirty,wipe It off to keep stone clean.

Anyone built a solar setup like this? I'm seriously considering it. I would double up on the batteries and panels but that's still only 20 amp hours. in the end I'd have a solar setup that would charge my phones and rechargable batteries, but not good for much more. Maybe a couple LED lights. Would be larger than a brunton-type setup but also much cheaper per amp.

Curious if anyone has done this and whether they thought it was worth it.

Anybody using any GoalZero stuff for solar? They seem to get good reviews, just wondering if anyone had personal experience with it.

Thats not bad... I keep a 2.5w solar panel in my bob for charging phones and batteries. I just use the clamps to connect to a 12v car charger and I have phone juice. It doubles as a trickle charger for vehicle batteries as well. Its actually been propped up on my windshield wiper for a few weeks now. I dont drive the truck much anymore

I got it for $9 last black friday, and I believe they have them this year as well... http://www.northerntool.com/shop/too...8629_200578629
