I have a mix of chisels. Some are flat backed and some are tapered shaft. I have a guide that works with the flat back chisels. I need something to work with the tapered back chisels.

Answer: 
This item won't properly hold a chisel tapered or flat. Highly suggest you purchase one made by another company. Stanley tools bombed out on this peice of garbage!!!

Answer: 
Yes, but i recommend using 2 hands to steady the chisel while you hone. And it gives you the option to put the three different edges on the chisel.

Because it is made out of pressed steel the metal spreads and the guide wheels fall out of the axle

Answer: 
Yes, you can make it work. I have a couple of old Stanley Sweethearts and some newer Marples (now Irwins) and a motley mix of some others. I can get them, and my plane irons all locked in to this guide although it can be awkward.
But you get what you pay for, and this one is fussy to set up. As you tighten the clamps to hold the blade in place, it's easy to knock the bevel angle out of line.

It's a good tool to keep in the tool box for just in case, and serviceable if you don't have anything else. But I have a shop made fixture for when I sit down for serious sharpening. Read Less

Answer: 
Not very fine and it drinks the oil up faster than you can replace it. Trashed it along with the tool itself.

How to use it to actually sharpen garden tools

This question is from Chisel and Plane Iron Sharpening Kit
Asked by
Northern Virginia
Read all my Q&A
May 24, 2015
When I bought the sharpening stone at Home Depot, there was no guide or oil included. Just the double-sided stone by itself.

In trying to use it with loppers and hand shears with (and without) water, it only seems to make them duller.

I have used other sharpening stones previously while camping and also in the military. There was never any problem.

Please advise as to what specific technique(s) should be used to obtain positive results.

Thanks.

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good buy for the buck ! Found it very easy to use and didn't take long to get a perfect edge. I liked the 3 degree option so i could choose the edge. Could have been a little wider but overall a good product. September 3, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gets the Job Done I picked this up a while ago wanting a better way of holding my plane and chicle blade angles. Some of the other comments are saying it isn't accurate. I agree, however unless you are doing precise, fine woodworking like detail carving or something, you don't need a perfect angle. As long as it is in the range of 25-35 degrees it will do just fine. The most important thing is that it is sharp, which it does that well. Ask any woodworker what they sharpen too and the angles will be all over. As it is an aluminum oxide stone, you can use basically whatever you want as a lubricant- water, most oils, mineral oil, whatever. As long as you prevent the stone from getting clogged with metal shavings ( the stone will get shinny). Of course the higher end sharpen systems like this are going to be better, you are looking at a $100 difference. If you want the Best, buy the best. Don't expect perfect results from a $12 budget minded tool. January 13, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't buy this If, like me, you can afford to buy things twice by all means go ahead and buy it. I have one of these and it is complete junk. I stumbled upon this while searching for its replacement and thought I drop a quick negative review. It is a fiddly thing that doesn't hold the chisel very well and takes forever to mount the blade squarely in. What you want to buy is a jig that hold the chisel from the sides, rather than from the top like this piece of junk. Bottom line save your money and buy something else. December 12, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very bad choice. No real instructions enclosed, angle gauge on tool is way off degrees needed to hone chisels or plane irons. As stated above, item is poorly made & even more so with no defined instructions . One might be able to figure it out with some help from stanley. I wound up trashing it & only kept the honing oil. Hey, this in NO way reflects bad on the service rendered by Home Depot. After all Home Depot didn't manufacture it. Stanley tools did & they sure missed the mark with this peice of junk December 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Need to sharpen your chisels? I needed to sharpen many old chisels and I was looking for an angle guide to stroke the chisels. This is exactly what I needed. Simple to use and at the right price. October 7, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by INEXPENSIVE -- FUSSY SET UP -- GREAT RESULTS I'm retired. I've more time than $$$. I'm a bit cheap, but not so cheap as to buy any tools that can't produce quality results. If you're like me and require a honing guide for maintaining a consistent bevel angle, this kit includes a well made, effective, and durable honing guide, a so so stone and some oil. Alignment of chisels in this honing guide requires a little more time than other much more expensive guides do, but I've found this guide capable of producing comparable results for a fraction of cost. So, if you are in a hurry, this may not be the product for you. But for me it does a good job and left me with enough $$$ to buy a couple chisels worth sharpening well. October 21, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by cheep not a good product not a good tool the stone wore the cheep plastic wheels down turning the stone black I tried to put a picture of the stone .it did not work I hoped that the kit was a good one but it is cheep maid if you make it cheep tool no one will by it .don't waste your money April 8, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good value for the money. I purchased the sharpening kit to sharpen an old Stanley block plane. This kit was less than half the price of a competitive fixture, and also included a sharpening stone and oil. The fixture is simple to use, and I was pleased with the quality of the plane iron when I was done. I sharpened a couple chisels while I had everything set up, and it was pretty easy to put a keen edge on the chisels. The fixture is not as robust as the higher priced unit, but will hold up fine for the casual user. December 10, 2014
