Retiring my el cheapo plane blade/chisel honing guide.

Anybody have good/bad things to say about this one?

Version B is what I think I want.

Dave:
Lots of folks seem to like the Veritas guide.
I bought one some (10?) years ago, so probably an earlier version.
I either took it back or resold it at a loss- can't remember which.
It didn't seem to be any improvement on what I was using then- the Eclipse 36.

I spent a fantastic week studying with luthier Brian Burns and his sharpening system was one of the many great ideas I picked up.

That system can be used with older 'off the stone' guides like the General, so don't throw yours away just yet!

I have the original version Veritas honing guide and it has served me well in studio woodworking for more than 15 years. The ability to incrementally adjust the angle to hone a micro bevel is a game changer in my book. For narrow chisels, either the side clamping Eclipse style, or the newer Veritas (Mk. II) with narrow attachment would work better.

It works for me. When I use it. Which isn't nearly often enough.

Interesting system, John. That first link really lays it all out.

As a Cabinet Maker for twenty yrs i have used the old one and the new one. They work just fine. Always the person is 90% of the skill. BTW I use Japanese water stones , they make a difference.
