Not bad for plane irons, but barely useable for chisels with blunt sides, since the chisel can not seat well within the beveled sides of the clamps. I also found the the small width of the wheel made it a little difficult to keep the jig from tilting to one side or the other during sharpening. As a work around for my chisels, I place the bottom face directly against the lateral bars of the tool and use a pair of pliers to tighten the bolt.

If I could rate separately for plane irons vs. chisels, I would give a 4 or maybe even 5 for planes and a 1 for chisels. For planes it really works well. With my chisels, I am able to do better freehand.

As an average weekend woodworker. I found the Honing Guide a little difficult to set up each chisel in order to make it level. The more I have used it the easier it is to work it. Great tool to have when one can't afford the machine sharpeners.

A 3 star is in the middle of poor and excellent. This is excellent for plane irons but poor for chisels. There is a lot of fussing and trial and error to get the chisel perfectly level and aligned in the slots. If a chisel hone is what you are looking for this is not it.

I bought this to sharpen my wood chisels and it does a supurb job. In the process, I used it to rejuvinate an old block plane of my father's. It cuts as well as the new block plane I have.
