I don't know, Derek...occasionally you have to regrind that entire bevel in order to re-establish the micro-bevel. So I'm not sure which takes longer in the long run, sharpening full-face every time or regrinding now and then. Unless you have a severely damaged edge or you're using super-slow cutting stones, even a full-face takes very little time, in my experience. Ten or twenty strokes can be hammered out in five or ten seconds, and if you need more strokes than that, you should have dropped a stone grit or two.
I used to sharpen with micro-bevels and went back to sharpening full-face. I find it simplifies my sharpening process, which ultimately makes it faster. However, I only use three stones, 1000-4000-8000, and a DiaFlat. I can have a damaged edge chisel back to sharp in a minute or so if I'm hauling ass, or a touch up done in fifteen seconds. I do use the Veritas jigs and it takes longer to get the blades locked in than it does to sharpen them.
I have to agree with Eric here and for good reason (other than Eric's usually right). I had something similar happen with my Gripper of all things. I was using it to cut a piece and the off cut got trapped between the outer Gripper leg and the blade. It did basically the same thing as it does on the fence side. Luckily it was small and the Gripper deflected it away from me. A change of shorts and I recalculated what happened and why. I might do that operation a hundred times and never have it happen again but I ain't taking that chance.
Still, it's an interesting approach.
I hired a plumber to come out and check my broken garbage disposal. I turned it on and it was "frozen." When he came over I went into another room to do something, and he called me back in about a minute and a half later.
"There was a dime stuck in it. Want it?" And he tossed it to me.
Then hit me with a 90 dollar service call.
Unethical? Or is that just standard operating plumber procedure?
