Thanks for the replies

 I have a Stanley Honing guide but I find it awkward to set up and difficult to return to a previous setting.

Might treat myself to the Veritas Mk II

Thanks again for the replies

I dont thik the guide I was referring to is made by Veritas I have just looked on the Brimark site and it was not under Veritas.

But I may be wrong?

General Sharpening GuideThis is the largest guide here and is very easy to use. The bevel angle is set by adjusting the hinge in the centre of the jig. Unusually the roller runs on the workbench behind the sharpening stone rather than on the stone itself. It is very stable and grips the blade tightly with its large central screw clamp. It's comfortable to use and easy to set.
