Under-powered and inadequate
I was very disappointed with this. It's hopelessly underpowered and the tool mount shoddy - the small plastic bushes soon wore. Setting the blade was fiddly, and alternative blade mounts are all sold as extras. Made my own mount and went back to (careful) use of bench grinder for sharpening - the Tiger went in the bin.

Very useful sharpening tool
Body is plastic so needs a bit of care handling it. Comes with basic kit as advertised. Have sharpened chisels & small hand planes & it does the job well.

Rust and scratch
I've recently bought one of these kits and when I opened it the arm which holds the jig for a chisel to fit into you was rusty and the actuall body of the machine was all scratched and the stone was all marked as well.

Arrived this morning, almost ready to use straight to use out of the box, just the grit wheel to fit. Gave it a go sharpening my wood chisels as I had been putting that job off for ages. It was a lot easier than doing it by hand on a oil stone. Pleased with my purchase, expect to use it on a regular basis. Its a no thrills piece of kit that does the job.

Hello The f bar is 12mm and most manufacturers jigs will fit on this bar , please check with the supplier of the jigs . some screw on leather honing wheels are not compatible as the side fittings are different .
