Great bit of kit

After over 40 yrs using oil stones for sharpening and honing I thought I would give the mk 2 a try combined with the Ryder 400-1000 diamond plate. Out of the box made light work of my 23/8 plane blade and rebate blade, very easy to set up and use.
Made the trip down to the Warrington store where I got great service and advice regarding a number of items I was interested in.

Excellent quality

As with all Veritas products, it’s beautifully made, and oozes quality. Although there are very many fantastic features, there are a few niggles. Like most tools, it requires a bit of practice to use it well. There are many adjustments, and it’s easy to set up incorrectly. Just a word of warning, some adjustments are made with the blade clamped in place – watch where your fingers are!

The narrow holder clamps chisels perfectly squarely and prevents twisting. However, because chisel shafts are rarely square, it sometimes results in a skewed hone. I know this is not really important, but it just annoys me. The wider holder for plane irons does not have this problem, although it’s easy to clamp with asymetric pressure, so the blade twists in the holder as soon as you apply pressure.

Overall, it’s a very good piece of kit which is made well. However, it is a bit slow to set up, and as I am sharpening chisels and plane irons frequently, I tend to use my 40 year old Stanley honing guide which is faster. As always, having quality sharpening stones is more important than the honing guide.

Varitas Delux Mk2 Honing Guide Set

Look I'm no Cabintet maker or profess to being anything but a hobbies but one thing I always maintain is buying the highest standard of tool I can afford then I have no excuses except my ability is at fault not the tool.
So received my Varitas Delux set yesterday after requesting notification when they came back in stock and just the cardboard box it's packaged in is built to last.
The blade holders and rollers are simply spot on with no play in the joints, this is why I do without other things in life to treat myself to quality tools like this.
At this point I must add that I initalially bought a Trend honing guide in fact I ended up having two as the first one simply fell to pieces and guess what? The replacement they sent did the same after 2 uses so back it went.
If like me you rely on a honing guide this will not disappoint. Perfectly registered straight bevels and micro bevels if you need them all in all the safest and most accurate method to sharpen tool blades. For me anyway!
Incidentally, the Trend honing guide doesn't allow the sharpening of Firmer chisels so clearly not a comparative tool to the Varitas.
If you're reading these reviews in order to decide whether to take the plunge, you won't regret it! Take it from me and I'm a fussy so and so when it comes to buying most things and buying from Axminster is probably the fastest, safest way.

Makes sharpening plane sailing!

I have used asian origin Eclipse type guides, and an original Eclipse guide and thought about the Lie Nielsen one, but its eye watering price put me off. The Veritas MK2 isn't exactly cheap but boy is it nice to uses. Very simple set up, not as complex as it might appear at first glance. In the hand its makes sharpening effortless and repeatable. I have arthritis in my hands and the large size of this guide make for much more comfort in the holding than any other guide I've ever tried

Brillant

Being disabled I like to make life easier for myself and that is why I had to try this honing set. The price to me is not too expensive has it has a quality feel, build and look that a lot of tools do not come with. This is a 5 piece set that is extremely easy to set up and use and produced the sharpest of blades on all of my chisels and YES there that sharp I can shave hairs from my arm very easily. I looked at the Lie Nielson honing guide and in my eyes it just seemed too expensive to buy firstly the honing guide and then if you want to sharpen anything different all the other fittings to buy and I just could not justify it. I don't give good reviews if something doesn't come up to scratch but this is just Brilliant and why not buy it if you want to have sharp blades on chisels and planer blades or anything else. WELL WORTH THE MONEY
