Hi Jason,

All I have done is to show a simple concept of using a disc blade to offer it's rural application any need of sophisticated sharpening. Your idea is quite practical, and I have made many foot operated mechanical fabrications over the years. It should be simple enough to use a pipe U-shape for a pedal with vertical connection to the lever. The body would just be turned around so that the scraper blade handle faces the operator.

This is a concept that could be extended in many ways depending on the needs and ability of the user, so all ideas will formulate from who and where these things might be used. Mine will evolve to make it easy to put away when not in use, but any visitors wanting to talk about gasification will have to give me a morning on the end of that lever(:-)

Doug Williams,
