Pros: Ease of Use, None
Cons: Overall Quality
no improvement is recognized in this 10 years
I know this tool is based on more than 10years old dsign and becomes almost legend. I bought it before also. Unfortunatery defects of design or manufacturing are not solved yet. 1. using with shallow angle, stone hits heads of hinge screw and grind it. 2. angle adjustment mechanism is not so-smooth by mutual interference between 2 adjusting rods. 3. extension rod on stone holder is not parallel with surface of stone.

Not a bad kit without the aligner rod hassle
Pros: * It fits over a little thicker blades than my other aligner. * Diamond stones are nice, fit good on the holder. * Stones easy to clean with just water and stay flat even after more than a couple hours of grinding. * Nylon holster/stone-pocket handy if you carry this in your backpack or such, I only wish it was designed to take the aligner with the rods attached too. Still a good pocket for your stones and stone holder. Fits few extra stones easy. * Takes much less space than other such kits in your backpack. * Price of replacement or additional stones seems reasonable. Cons: * No angle markings in the rods. Have to manually measure what slot is what angle, possibly mark them with white/silver paintpen yourself. My other aligner has clear angle markings and I used that to check this one. * Aligner rods are not centered. The two rods need their separate sockets and need to be adjusted separately to the right slot. With no clear angle markings can get a little annoying. * Rods a little bent and feeling flimsy. Conclusion: Not a bad kit without the aligner rod hassle. One little stick of plastic that holds one of the rods in the aligner socket broke within a minute of me opening the packaging. Seems I will not bother to send it back since even the clamp seems sturdy and useful in itself, the rods are not quite up there. I will be using this kit with my old Lansky aligner clamp.
