5/16" Drill Stop Collar W/ Hex Key. You can use this as a quick and easy stone measuring jig for different edge pro stones along with the angle cube that is also available on the site. Comes with a hex key.
Here’s how MADROOKIE does it. Brilliant! Take notes :) The perfect solution to varying stone thicknesses,especially those ’Extra Thick’ stones. A ’must have’ for the serious EP user.

Pretty good solution for the stone width issue w/ EP. Will say might be more useful on EP pro than Apex,as the most acute sharpening angle you can achieve with thick stones like Shapton when using the stop collar is 13.6º
I have been using the EdgePro system for three years. This collar substantially improves results as even a new set of stones will have slight thickness variances. Reduces time needed at each grit level. Highly recommend.

Take the stone off of your edge pro and rest the bar on the guide. Now mount a stone and rest it on the guide again. See the angle change? The same thing happens to a lesser degree when you use stones that have different thicknesses. And,naturally,they all *are* different. The drill stop collar lets you compensate for the different thickness of the stones in the blink of an eye. There are several videos on YouTube showing how to set it up. I think this item is a must buy for anyone with an Edge Pro,especially when you are using the finer stones. It takes you from being close to right to perfect every time.
The dril stop collar is a must have if you have uneven stones.
Great time saver for adjusting different stone thicknesses. Mine was very snug. Maybe because my edge pro is older.
Must have,should be standard for every EP.
This is the only way to get perfect edges time after time.
Even when your stones are all about as thick,over time some stones will wear faster than others.
With this thingy you will have no problem with that.
Hard to review something as simple as a ’drill-stop collar’. It came as described. What mattered more to me about this order is that shipping was fast and reasonably priced. Will order again and would have no hesitation on ordering something more substantial.
