"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.
"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."
"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."
