Perfect for finalising angles
8 Nov 2014
By NottinghamNick
, 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 pagewrite
, 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 wolverine874
, 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. "

" Really easy to use. My chisels were an absolute mess very abused but after a long sharpen its brought them back. Only things could pull on it is that the sharpening block would be better twice the size but I still manage very easily with it. "

Very good sharpener
31 Jan 2015
By Bmal
, Aberdeen
" Works really well and easy to configure for different angles. Fastening mechanism lets slip unless tightened very firmly. Small tighteners make this a bit tricky. Requires the use of an additional coarser sharpening stone if major repairs to chisels to save time and effort. "

8 Jan 2015
By squashy

" So nice to have properly sharp planes and chisels again. It's hard work getting a plane back to how it should be when it hasn't been properly sharpened for years - small blister involved - but the results are well worth it. The stone seems to absorb oil, which is perhaps why it doesn't go far. "

" 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 Mbugs
, 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! "

Use Your Eyes Instead
17 Feb 2015
By jimbim
, Aberdeen
" Flimsy and poorly made bit of kit. Angles on plastic 'guide' are not accurate. Chisel slips about in holder, flimsy plastic wheels are all over the place, very poor quality stone.
Really, just use the old fashioned way and trust to your own judgement, just buy a decent stone to do the job, the stone on this thing is like soap and wears down fast. The angles cannot be set correctly with the flimsy and loose piece of plastic gauge. The wheels are plastic and do not fit the axle spindle, making it wobble everywhere. This a poorly designed, flimsy and pretty much useless piece of kit if you want to sharpen your chisels to a reasonable edge.
