EP Clone Update

Since receiving the Ruixin (EP Clone) last week, I've been working on getting it ready for use. Mostely getting some of the sloppy fitment of the parts, polishing, etc. The biggest issue was the block that the stone rod fits in. The rod hole was drilled with a taper (about 1.25 mm) and that was causing the block to tilt when sliding the rod resulting in a binding action. After many considerations, I found a nylon bushing/washer that I drilled to the proper size and epoxied on to the wider end of the block. This made a world of difference on the smoothness of the sliding action. Mounted the base of the sharpener on a wooden base and added rubber feet to ensure it would not slide around when in use. Also added a wooden handle in place of the "L" shaped handle it came with. Still need to order some better stones, but I'm ready to start practicing my newbie sharpening skills

Now that you have everything working properly it shouldn't take long to get the hang of it.
