Good jig
Simple jig that works. I got my chisels and #7 jointer plane iron scary sharp. Use a stop block to jig to ensure repeatable bevels

Would this hosting guide work for Japanese bench chisels?
Sam M on Sep 6, 2015
what is the maximum width plane iron?
tony b on Sep 29, 2015
can this sharpen at angles up to 45 degrees? does anyone know of one that can?
Steve O on Oct 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I agree with Stanley. I think it could if the blade doesn't extend too far from the guide. This wouldn't work on my chisels though so I returned it and ordered another. I see that I can't refer to other stores so I can't say from where, but the registration guide shows it allows high angles up to 54 degrees on the correct setting. It's quite a bit more expensive than this guide though. Try doing an internet search for "high angle honing guide" and see if that helps.
is the guide all metal?
A shopper on Jul 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Everything is metal except for the knob used for tightening which is pressed on plastic
I saw a video on how to modify this honing guide. My question is: "Why wasn't it designed properly in the first place"?
Robert F on Feb 28, 2017
I'm sure there are always improvements that can be made to any tool or mechanism, however I've found this honing guide to be adequate for my needs.

What are the measurements for the right honing angles lost the paper that came with guide?
CHRISTOPHER P on Apr 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The measurements provided are just a guide for a starting point as not all chisels or plane blades have the same bevel angle so adjustments may be required. When you clamp a chisel or plane blade in the tool, set it on a flat surface and look from the side to see if the bevel is laying flat. if not you need to adjust in or out till it does. If all your blades have the same bevel angle, you can make a guide block that can be used to setup the length of blades extension the same every time. The are many examples on the WEB.
