Re: [BKARTS] Help with Scharfix Paring Machine



Drop it all the way down and use the roller as the guide. Then slowly
raise. I've found that one can actually it eye-ball it very accurately,
helping with lots of other things where measuring by eye is good.

Does anyone with a Scharfix 2000 know how to level the blade?  I can't find
any other way, other than eye-balling it, which is not very precise.  My
leather typically comes out with grooves, as one side of the blade is always
a fraction lower than the other.

I remember the instructions (which I can't find) had a short sentence or two
about leveling the blade, but when I read it way back when, it didn't make
sense to me.  Any help is greatly appreciated.
