Homestd, I sharpen mine at 36 Degrees. My jig is made from 3/4 thick mdf slightly longer than the knives so it can be clamped to my bench. I cut 11 degree parallel slots about 1/2" deep down the length. Both knives are inserted into the slots and I hone them with a diamond stone from end to end. This works well for me. The slots were ripped with a flat bottom rip blade.
I originally made my jig for sharpening my jointer knives, and it worked so well I made another for my Dewalt 733 planer knives.
