pmd73, I’m new to sharpening too, just a few steps ahead of you. Don’t waste your money on anything but a Veritus Mk II holder. The cheap one sold at Woodcraft would only clamp about half of my chisels as it swueezes from the fide. The Veritas squeezes the blade across the flat. I currently sharpen using the scary sharp sandpaper method to 800 grit. Sharp enough for my skill level.
Good Luck
