Description

In Detail

Package deal comprises the Veritas Mk.II Honing System and the Veritas Camber Roller

Veritas Mk.II Honing System
The main feature of the Veritas Mk.II is its blade registration system squaring and setting the blade in one easy step. The Mk.II Guide has three bevel angle range configurations: a high angle (25° to 54° in seven increments), standard (15° to 40° in six increments), and a third for back bevels. The registration jig slides onto the guide body, centering and squaring the blade using an integral fence. The clamping mechanism registers on the face of the blade and is designed to accept flat and tapered blades, as well as blades with irregular geometry. The Mk.II features a three-position eccentric roller allowing a micro-bevel to be honed quickly and accurately after only a simple turn of a knob. The 50mm wide roller is stable for even the narrowest of blades. The guide can easily accommodate chisels or blades from 6 to 72mm wide and up to 13mm thick including spokeshave blades. Sharpening stone not included

Veritas Camber Roller
This is an attachment specifically designed for use with the Veritas Mk.II Honing Guide. When planing on large, flat surfaces, it is often desirable to hone a slight curve, or camber, into the edge of the blade. The Veritas Camber Roller Assembly has a barrel-shaped roller that allows limited rocking, whilst still maintaining an accurate and consistent bevel angle. Simply replace the standard roller assembly with the camber assembly and sharpen. The blade is still set using the registration jig, and the camber roller includes the standard eccentric system allowing micro-bevels to be honed.

Hit & Miss

I agree with A Mcinnes. The blade registration jig is out of square, leaving consistantly out of square plane blades. The registration jig also wobbles up and down no matter how tight you do up the knurled knob. So does one set the blade wobble up or wobble down? Who knows. Either way renders the preset protrusion settings and therefore angles rather arbritary and makes exact repeatable honing impossible. You simply end up with half a dozen micropically different bevels across your tool, some of which are square and some which aren't. I find the camber attachment works okay. Forget chisels. They skew unless you buy the additional chisel holder. But at that price you're better off with a Kell no 3, which I have and works great. In retrospect I wish I hadn't bought the Veritas but I'll keep it as I also bought the skew guide for skew chisels and couldn't and still can't think of a better way of doing skews. I think I'd have got better results with plane irons with an Eclipse knock off like Axminster's but I'm not spending any more money on guides. So I'll have to settle to fettle or work out the angles myself and make a setting block to ensure squareness which was the whole point of buying this jig.

Disappointing from Veritas

In general I am a veritas fan. I have 4 of their planes and I find them to be very good. However my Veritas honing jig (MK2) does not produce square edges out of the box. This becomes annoyingly apparent when you fettle a blade and a cap iron. Lining up the cutting edges produces skew sides to the extent that the cap iron/iron assembly will not load into their finely toleranced planes! I examined my technique thoroughly and found it to be ok and I was producing this effect repeatably. After much thinking, I filed the blade guide, using safe edge against the base of the guide. The jig now produces nearly square (I don't want to over shoot) which means it was definitely OOS in the first place.
Additionally: the camber roller is very asymmetric and I also found that using the micro bevel feature produced a (consistently) skewed micro bevel. Not what I expect from Veritas and I would not have bought this set, had I known.

Superb Tool

I like to do things by hand when I can and the various sharpening jigs on the market just seemed like cheating but then I tried a chisel sharpened with one of these jigs and I saw the light. The ease and consistency with which it produces a reliable and accurate edge is a joy. This is a delight to use and well up to the usual quality engineering we expect from Veritas.

A must if you want perfect sharp blades

Sharpening a plane blade or chisel by hand is an art in itself. Using this Veritas Mk.II Honing System makes it effortless and fun to do. I received my system and within 1 hour I had sharpened up every chisel and plane blade I had. Once you have got your blades razor sharp it take less than a minute to re sharpen when needed. You will not be disappointed if you buy this item.

Veritas

I have had one off these for about 5 years now . It is well built and is and easy way to sharpen with no hassle and a perfect edge every time.
Just set the jig to the required degree you want and the rest is plane sailing . Would not be without it
