I bought this angle checker being I was ordering a bunch of other stuff from Woodcraft. I’ve seen these almost everywhere so I figured it would be handy to have at my sharpening bench. Bottom line, it just doesn’t work. When you slide a plane blade in (even a thick iron) it goes into the hole cut at the end so the angle of the blade really doesn’t register. You can pull it back some and “eye ball” it, but if your going to eye ball it, you might as well just use a piece of wood.
Don’t waste your money.
I’m back to using this, and figure its the best way anyhow;
