A joy to use! Review by Jens

This is the best and quickest sharpening system I've ever tried. Highly recommended - try it even if you already have a sharpening system, you may want to use this one instead!

When I ordered, I asked if I could make a modification to the package; eg. I wanted the 360mm float glass to be changed to the 470mm (large) variant.
-No problem, I got the extra large float glass, so I could use 4 x 84mm wide sheets for honing 60.4mm Quangsheng blades.
(Note: The Richard Kell No. 2 can easily accommodate a 60.4mm wide blade; officially it supports 66.7mm wide blades/chisels, but it seems the max. capacity is 75mm).

Including watching several howto-videos, setting up the 3S, sharpening the 10+1 Ashley Iles Bevel Chisel set took me a total of 6 hours.
-I very much recommend Matthew's (Workshop Heaven) videos; they're the very best on the subject; they give you all kinds of very detailed tips.
Eg. How to sharpen your plane iron with chamfered edges, how to make an improved ruler-trick (using painter's masking tape), why and how to make a benchmark, how to hold the chisels in the honing guide, exactly how to prepare the back of the chisels the best way (watch the same videos several times here; you need to take a good look at where the chisels are positioned at the start of a honing stroke and where the honing stroke stops; also count the honing strokes and notice all the details).

-So being a first-time user, I successfully got all my Ashley Iles chisels sharpened on the first try, no errors, no problems (except from one chisel was so sharp that it cut through my Ashley Iles plastic-pocket - but now that I have chisels, I can just make an elegant wooden suitcase for them instead.
