This does not answer the question of the original poster but it miraculously gave me the ability to sharpen a knife properly.

"No, the existing bevel will touch the stone and you grind at this angle until you form a burr which tells you that the two bevels have met. At this point, remove the burr and go to your next finer stone and do it again."

Thanks Buzz

You've got it RosCoe. Sharpening is not rocket science but there is an Internet plethora of bad info out there. Enjoy your newfound edges.
