Works for me!
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.
Works very well
The sharpening guide worked well, and helped put a good edge on my chisels and plane blades.
this producrs is fast and simple to use.
Not very useful
Just not a very useful product. Don't spend money on this one. Upgrade to more expensive systems.
Good product, makes it easy to get the correct angle on chisels
Acceptable, but not by much
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.
Poorly constructed - flimsy does not hold chisels tightly
Well worth the money
Easy to use. Put a great edge on all my chisels in no time at all.
Not the greatest for Plane Blades
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.
Really does the job well
Just learning to sharpen my own tools and this thing does really make me look like I know what Im doing. Friends want me to sharpen their blades.
