Aldi has the workzone multifunction sharpener on sale from the 28/9/2017 but is it worth buying just for setting the bevel on chisels. I've read one review but that was to say how rubbish it was at sharpening drill bits.

its cheap enough tbh you could always buy it and if its no good return it and say its knackered.

if you want to sharpen your chisels then easy method is to go with a bench grinder and attach a block of wood cut to the correct angle to run your chisel along. you want to really slide it across the wheel once say right to left then cool the chisel then the same again until you achieve the desired result. then hone it on a diamond stone or oil stone or whatever using a honing guide and finaly finish off with a leather strop.

or research the scary sharp method online

agree with Fin. Ignore the one review, he might have been trying to sharpen a masonry bit... :roll:

If you need one for sharpening chisels then go for it.
