    HI Richard!  Sorry you ran into this adjustment issue.  Did I send the instruction sheet with the adapters, if not my apologies?  This is addressed in the instructions.  I will post them here just so folks can read them prior to purchase.   I highlighted the area that address the over tightening of the belt. At 24 degrees using the small cube you should not even need the belt if you are careful.

    Angle cube adapter instructions:

    This adapter will allow you to use your magnetic digital angle devices with any non-magnetic mediums, (like strops, glass plates and whetstones), just the same as you use it with all your magnetic sharpening stones.

    The adapter is placed over the upper edge of the stone paddle you want to use, with the steel bar lying flat against the opposite side.  The adapter includes a multi-position elastic tensioning belt to hold the steel bar flat against the stone’s face.  The belt can be simply removed and swapped around to orient it for easy use, on whichever side your setting your guide rod angles.  Depending on the guide rod set angles, the thickness of the non-magnetic medium, and the weight of your angle cube, you can adjust the belt’s tension, accordingly.  It’s best to use the belt in the loosest tension position that will allow the belt to just lightly hold the steel bar flat, with the angle cube in place, when the stone is on the guide rod.  If the belt’s tension is set too tight, it may lift the steel bar off the stone’s side, affecting the angle readings.  You may find as you gain experience using the adapter, that you don’t need to use the tensioning belt with all your non-magnetic mediums.   

    The adapter can be place on the stone and the tensioning belt secured before or after sliding the stone on the guide rod.  Once the adapter is in place and the stone is positioned on your guide rod(s), affix, position and use your magnetic angle device as usual.  Be aware, the weight of your magnetic cube and its wider position on the adapter may rotate the stone over to the side, around the guide rod, quickly.  Please exercise caution while working close to the sharp knife edge with the Non-Magnetic Stone Adapter!

    That worked Marc, I removed the strap and it’s all flush now.  Thanks!

    Not to beat a dead horse but Marc, in your third picture (the one where the stone is left-leaning and your angle cube is mounted) there is a gap between the glass (?) and the metal bar.   So assuming that the bar is perfectly straight, am I correct in thinking that your glass has a concave wear area?  The bar is actually touching the glass at both the top and the bottom.

    Hi Richard, the only gap I see appears to be under the cube between the bottom of the cube and the steel.  There is no gap between the paddle and the steel in that picture

    Got my stone stops and adapter today. Great products and quick shipping. I’m almost ready for my first sharpening experience with the WE. Need to round up some old test knives and improve my lighting in my little corner and I’ll be ready. 4D9781EC-4FD0-4C45-9196-8AAE786629B6

    Richard,  “airscapes” is correct.  If you flip back to the first post that began this thread, or look at this included photo, you’ll see the shape of my red angle cube. It has a hollow or concaved center and only contacts the surface at the ends nearer to the corners.

    Ok, I was looking at this thinking it was an air gap.

    I discovered recently the adapters I had reviewed originally were not the latest version or rendition of these adapters.  I know mine were the original prototypes I was beta testing.  I hadn’t realized the new versions, the only version Doug has sold were so well improved to eliminate any issues I had experienced.  Doug was kind enough to send me a new caps. These Magnetic Stone Adapters are quite thick and stout with a thinner strap.  They work with every different size, width and thickness stone I have.  They really are an asset.

    I discovered recently the adapters I had reviewed originally were not the latest version or rendition of these adapters. Doug was kind enough to send me a newer updated cap. These newest version Magnetic Stone Adapters are quite thick and stout with a thinner strap. They work with every different size, width and thickness stone I have. They really are an asset.

    Not sure which ones I got since I was among the first to order (I think) but I like them! Thank you all for coming up with the idea and making them available to us.

    BB your’s are some of the ones pictured.  Marc had been using  and testing prototypes which exposed issues I fixed prior to selling any.

    There is a sheet metal version posted someplace in the giant MOD thread which was my inspiration, couldn’t find it just now but I know I saw it..
