Perfect for finalising angles
8 Nov 2014
By
, Nottinghamshire
"Having roughly sharpened my chisels on a bench grinder (and a selection of my brother in law's late father's chisels) this set allows for the perfect angles to be sharpened for chisels and plane blades.
Used properly there is no reason this product shouldn't last years - just remember to use the whole surface not just the middle (or you will quickly wear a groove that will prevent accurate sharpening). Love the simple angle setter provided as part of the jig - nothing complicated here, and nothing to lose at the bottom of the tool chest!"

Does what it says on the box
5 Feb 2014
By
, Worthing
"Does the trick nicely, and managed to sharpen my chisels quickly and easily. Made such a difference!
Found the guide somewhat confusing to use, and the instructions are, shall we say, basic - but the stone did the trick, and I've always sharpened my chisels by hand anyway, so not a problem."

Excellent for Chisels
13 Jul 2012
By
, Cumbria
"A really good kit for keeping chisels sharp, and really easy to use. I found that with the stone in my woodworking vice I can sharpen the chisels up much more regularly, and in just a few minutes I can have my whole set done.
The clamp that holds them at the correct angle is good, although if you unscrew the bar that holds the chisel tight, the mechanism does drop apart and bounce to all four corners of your workshop!
The bottle of oil is quite small, after only a few goes I have reverted to using a few drops of standard machine oil as a substitute.
All in all though, an excellent kit."

"Good value. Instructions could be better. Sharpening takes a long time if your starting angle needs adjusting. Finish is worth the effort though. Make sure you have some light machine oil as the bottle with the kit doesn't last long."

Chisel sharpener
29 May 2013
By
, Kent
"A useful bit of kit for keeping chisels in good order.
Care is needed when clamping the chisel to the apparatus to ensure it is at right angles
Overall I am pleased I made the purchase and I have now got a lot of useful chisels for doing woodwork rather than relegated for opening cans of paint!"

"The sharpening kit works well and produces a great edge on my badly worn chisels. The honing guide and wheel feels a bit cheap, but it works fine."

Faulty as supplied
16 Apr 2012
By
, Bournemouth
"I bought the sharpener last March and had no cause to use it until today in April, so it was out of warranty. Bad luck for me as the flip out angle gauge was missing!
Advice - - - - inspect the gauge through the packet before opening it. I didn't so no chance of a claim. I've used it today without the gauge and guestimated the 25 degree angle. It sharpens chisels OK, the coarse side soon shifts the metal but the fine side seems to have some kind of inclusions in the surface, not as good as the coarse side, but we will see how it goes with use.
The stone is supplied dry and soaks up a lot of oil initially about half the bottle supplied and its still not what I would call an oil stone. I'm going to soak the stone in loads of light oil, think it will perform even better once its saturated.
