I need to do a calibration of the Gracey 13/14 for faculty members. How can I make sure they are all on the same page about sharpening this instrument?

Kathy,
It would be good to demonstrate sharpening of the Gracey while calibrating the faculty and show them that by learning the design features as it relates to sharpening, students can better understand the principles of instrumentation and adapt this instrument rather easily.
