Stanley Chisel Sharpening Kit
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.

Honing guide is rubbish
The degree gauge is not spot on and you got to guess if the chisel is square in the guide.

Perfect for finalising angles
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!
