bridge anyone

I cam across a whetstone bridge years ago so that razors could be honed at your sink. the bridge held a whetstone, with wing nut adjustable wood stops to hold it in place, also the were two legs that were also adjustable so that you could fit the depth of your sink, and as a result you not have a mess to clean up.
anyone use it or one like it and what area your thoughts ?

I don' t use one. But honestly I do see the point. Every time I put a stone in its box on the sink and the thing starts moving, I think 'I really should get me a stone holder'.

My piece of granite to flatten hones is cut so it fits on my sink.

The faucet is set to drip , drip.

It works pretty good.

I haven't cleaned the P trap lately to see if there is a lot of junk....

Your sink/counter top height is a comfortable height to work at.

The main problem I see with the OP is water running or dripping on wood in the long term could be an issue.

Thanks for the reminder on the sink height , beeing that that Gf's place is ADA complaint livable translates to this being a nightmare, the sink is at or just below waist level

That is one of the troubles with modern building codes in my opinion.

I make my house comfortable to me.

If you don't like it don't live in it or buy it. Or remodel it to meet your needs.

If it meets my intended purpose..............

yep they go even further and regulate the max temp your water going out your tap can be too, but its one of the few changes I can make that can be undone
Modern code is insane, and to mace it worse there seems to be overbearing HOA everywhere. whatever happened to if it ain't an eye sore or dilapidated we don't care neighborhoods

At my work we are limited to 120'f

I agree with that. At my work a person may not know and the burn themselves unintentionally.

At my house I run my water heater at a low temp but that is my choice. I take a shower with the hot only on.

But this is my choice and in my control.

Why should the government be involved???????????????

apparently if your are disabled in any way, you have lost the ability to determine what "hot " is an the law limits to a max of 115'F, but I bump it up, so the GF can take longer showers since there is no thermo valve and its a tiny heater( I really hate electric water heater and stoves, they seem to never work right)
