Having bought a Stanley honing jig a couple of years ago for personal use, I was pleased with it enough to buy one for work as well. However, what a difference a couple of years make! While the basic design is exactly the same, where it is made is not. The one I had originally bought was made in England. The castings were tight, clean and smooth. This one was made in, well two guesses as to where and the first one doesn't count. The castings a rougher and the angle gage wobbles so you never if you're truely square or not. As for the stone, it's too narrow. Any chisel over an inch and a half or plane iron greater than a number three can not be sharpened on this stone, which for most shops, makes it almost completely useless. Plus it soaks up too much oil and clogs too easily.
Now doen't think I'm jumping on the "Stanley sucks" bandwagon. Most of my tools are modern Stanley's and I'm more than pleased with their performance. But what I'm afraid of; is that pretty soon that won't be the case. As all the major manufacturers sell their souls to jump on the "Chinatastic" bandwagon too line their own (and their share holders too) pockets, we, the average consumer are left with inferior prducts at only a slightly cheaper (if that) price.
Final thought; it's ok for what it is, but it's not what it used to be, and doesn't bode well for what it will be, unless we do something to change it.

I consider this a total waste of money for the very simple reason that it is imposible to clamp a chisel or plane blade squarely. There is no straight edge to register the edge of the blade on. Also, the wheels are remarkably cheap plastic. I am going to buy one of the standerd "vise" style guides.

Do not waste your money on this product. The sharpening stone is extremely warped, and spending the time to flatten the stone would take days. The gauge is terribly cheap, and it is very difficult to keep your iron or chisel square.
There are better gauges out there for similar cost.

If I could give it a 4.5, I would.

Compared to other sharpening jigs and their prices this system is worth the money. However, one does have to be careful to check the quality control on the stone. The first one I ordered locally had a crown with one side having a higher middle and the other side having higher ends. The second stone isn't perfect, but within acceptable specs.

The value of the kit is mainly the jig. The stone is a few dollar stone and small bottle of oil will keep you busy for 10-12 sharpenings. For those who say lining up the blade straight is difficult, slide the blade over to the side and use it as a straight edge. The wheels on the jig are wide enough to allow you to do this. You don't have to center the blade on this jig for it to work.

The flip out guide makes it easy to get a 25, 30, or 35 degree angle. Anything else and you'll have to do the math to figure out how long you need to put the blade through the clamps. The stone is wide enough to handle a standard No. 4 plane blade with a little extra room.

If after looking at the negative reviews for this you are on the fence about this product -- do yourself a favor and don't buy it.

The stone is very low quality (as expected) and came with a few chips on the edges (not that big a deal). It will probably get some use for pocket knifes and such, so not a complete loss on the stone.

The honing guide is horrible. It is hard to get a plane iron in square and darn near impossible to get a chisel in there square. Your best bet is pushing the iron all the way to one side and tighten. If you try the same with a chisel you will notice that the tool isn't held securely and that you end up messing up your bevel because the back wheel is off-center. Attempting to tighten the screws is maddening, due to the shape of the guide it is very hard to hold your tool in the right spot while tightening. Only hand screws supplied so good luck getting this tight enough. Wheels are flimsy plastic and will wear quickly if you use sand paper to sharpen your tools. Loosening the screws is another challenge -- the wedge doesn't want to move, so instead the screws come out of their plastic washers, which promptly drop to the floor for you to track down.

Don't buy this. If you want to sharpen on the cheap, get yourself the Rockler honing guide or the similar big horn model.

I returned this piece of junk for a refund. Does not hold chisels at all and it's impossible to square plane irons (blades) with thumb screw clamp. Plastic wheels are not true and round and probably wouldn't last. Stone is a cheap $3 stone like Harbor freight.

Purchased a Stanley combination square that wasn't square and took it back too. (walmart)

Stanley tools (chinese made) are junk like every other imported POS sold with aj American name. Shame on Stanley!

Mediocre at best. Very light duty and will wear out fast. I think I will replace it with the Work Sharp WS3000 Wood Tool Sharpener in the near future.

I bought this mostly for the honing guide since I already have diamond sharpening stones. The honing guide works well but the quality is not there. It does work but your have to hold it carefully.
Just for kicks, I took a look at the stone and mine was totally flat so I didn't need to flatten the stone at all. I haven't used it yet but that was surprising since most cheap stones don't come completely flat.
