“I had no idea how thick the base plate was until it arrived. It is extremely easy to use and set up. I used the jig on sandpaper to sharpen 3 chisels and a scraper. I am a first time chisel sharpener. They all turned out extremely well. Setting the angle or a micro bevel couldn’t be easier. The size and weight of the jig means your hands don’t get very tired and the heft does most of the work. I am very happy with the purchase and would definitely recommend it to anyone.” – David P.
