Product Information:

General Tools' chisel and plane blade sharpening guide allows angles to be set with the printed scale, a protractor or by eye. The adjusting knob determines the bend in the guide's body and the angle of sharpening at the tool's front edge. Spring tensioned clamp holds tools up to 2-5/8" wide. Two-wheeled rear roller moves in a straight line during use and will not wander sideways like other guides. Lightweight sharpener is made of high-impact Lexan.

    Comments about Chisel and Plane Blade Sharpening Guide :

    I've had one of these for a few decades. It allows me to easily sharpen my bench chisels and plane blades. I use it with a combination 1000/6000 Japanese waterstone. You have to really tighten down the clamp to keep the blade from moving. Other than that, I find it easy to use. I made a little jig for setting it up. Comes in handy but not necessary.

    Acceptable, but not by much

    Pros

    • Quiet

    Cons

    Best Uses

    Comments about Chisel and Plane Blade Sharpening Guide :

    The front clamp tends to bend the leading edge before the blade is even held tight enough to not move. I was able to use it only by carefully centering the blade and using a square to make sure there was no skew. Still got a little rounding from side to side, but close enough for DYI.

    Comments about Chisel and Plane Blade Sharpening Guide :

    I read the the very positive review and decided to get this guide for sharping both Chisels and plane Blades. After using it I decided it really doesn't work as good as the (3A21 Honing Guide) also sold here. The main problems are large and takes up a lo of work space. Also the clamp only holds from the top so it your holding something small it's hard.
