I made this mezzotint rocker sharpening jig yesterday. It consisted of buying a wood handle, cutting it to size, drilling holes, sanding it and staining it. My last step was actually sharpening the rocker.
Use a jig like this is by far the quickest way to get those sharp teeth.
However I will say that actually rocking out the mezzotint plate is an exercise in patience.
