Customer Questions & Answers

Will this device hold a tapered back chisel correctly to get an accurate angle?

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.
Asked by: TimBo
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!!!

how fine of grit is the stone

I see that it states that it is a medium and fine grit stone, but how fine is the fine side? 1000? 4000? 8000?
Asked by: Josh
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

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.

No, this tool won't hone chisels or plane irons, let alone a gardening item...

Chisel and Plane Iron Sharpening Kit is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quit being so stubbornly old one! I've been sharpening knives, chisels and plane irons by hand since I took shop classes 35 years ago, and I'm pretty happy with my results. I figured that people who messed around with these little guide gadgets were just too lazy to learn how to sharpen properly. But sharpening by feel and instinct takes time and care and a moment's inattention can ruin an almost perfect edge, leading to edges that are "good enough" rather than razor sharp. This little guide makes it MUCH easier to sharpen chisels and plane irons, turning a ten minute job into a two minute one, meaning that the tools get sharpened more frequently because it takes less time. And because they are sharpened more frequently, it is easier to maintain the good edge. The stone packed with the kit is perfectly serviceable and I have added it, along with the little bottle of honing oil, to my "traveling toolbox". I use the guide itself with my water stones and it works just fine once you are used to it. I know that there are fancier, pricier sharpening guides on the market, but compared to maintaining the honing angle by eye and feel, this tool does a marvelous job and is well worth the cost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good old fashioned way. I used it to bring a 30 year old Stanley plane and 40 year old chisel back into service. You have to realize that this is a HAND tool, used to sharpen other HAND tools, by HAND. A type of task that requires TIME and PATIENTS. Two things, that when combined with the right tool(s) produce excellence.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not great While the guide is basically, "okay" for sharpening hand plane irons and chisels, it isn't a precision made assembly. The alignment marks that are supposed to help square the item to be sharpened are too wide and the screws that tighten the guide against the object to be sharpened are aluminum. Overall the guide works, but you have check alignment with a square. The sharpening stone that comes with the guide is garbage! One side of the stone was very badly curved showing the whole stone was not parallel ground. All in all, spend a little more and buy some from Veritas or Lee Valley.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Better than nothing. By a bit. As a disclaimer, I am new to sharpening my own tools with a stone, and wanted to learn on an inexpensive one before investing in a good set. I have used this set a few times and am a bit disappointed with it, so it's fortunate it didn't cost much. 1. The stone is extremely porous, meaning the honing oil that came with it was not nearly enough to saturate the surface: it just sank right in-- the entire bottle-- and left a dry surface. So to be able to use it even once without the pores clogging, you need a separate bottle of oil. 2. The stone is not hard-wearing. Grit comes off like crazy, the edges crumbled in the package, and I'm already noticing visible wear after not much use. 3. Although you wouldn't expect one at this price, the stone has no storage box. You have to find your own way of storing an oily stone without making a mess. 4. The stone is a little smaller than I'd like-- fine for chisels and narrow plane blades, but not ideal for wider ones. 5. The honing guide is a bit tricky to use, getting it tightened without the blade moving. The blade depth gauge, while a nifty idea, is also difficult to read. Altogether, fiddly but better than nothing. Will definitely upgrade from this set when funds allow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works very well except the one big grain of sand in the middle It works pretty good. But there is one problem. Near the middle of one side, there is a big grain of sand. I have to avoid it carefully otherwise it will definitely make some pit on the blade. Another issue is you need a little skill to fix the blade on the holder with the right angle.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Utility vs. Quality Great for sharpening gardening tools! Not so good with chisels and plane irons. The stone is so dry I use half the bottle of oil on one Irwin 1/2" chisel. Wet dry sandpaper 300 600 1000 on a flat surface is faster, cheaper, easier. But that's just my opinion. For twice the money I should have bought a better chisle. #Stanleysweetheart
