    Hmm? Both my LN Blocks (60 1/2 & 102) have A2 irons and they seem to work well. They sharpen up real nice and hold an edge for a good long time.

    I have the Bosch Colt kit. It works well, but the fence doesn't lock as securely as I'd like. I had it slip once. You really need to tighten it down.
