If you have no experience sharpening, a guide would be most helpful.
I never got a trully sharp plane iron until I got a guide.

Your work piece must be completely stationary. If the support, table bench or whatever, is racking or moving at all you will not get good results.

Google “scary sharp” and read some of the resulting documentation.
