I love power tools as much as anyone, but sharpening my chisels and plane blades is something I prefer to do by hand. I have been using the scary sharp system for years, and you just can’t beat the results…and the satisfaction of doing it by hand.
1/4” plate glass, PSA backed sandpaper in grits from 80 to 2000 (or regular sandpaper and spray adhesive), and a Lee Valley/Veritas jig. I have the older jig, not the MK2.
I bought a delta sharpening system, maybe 15 years ago, and it’s in my shop somewhere…covered in dust.
