I've been free hand sharpening for a couple of years now, and was excited to finally use a sink bridge instead of the stone holder in a baking try setup.
After about 20minutes of use, the sink bridge broke. The sliding porting that holds the stone (not the sliding portion that controls the length of the bridge) has a small square of wood that sits in the groove that runs up and down the length of the sink bridge. That little square is basically just glued on. It came off and the screw pulled through the rectangular section that holds the stone. I tightened everything down snugly, not overtightening it, but when it got wet, it appeared to get soft and came apart.
I'm not rating this a 1 star, as I was able to use a couple of different sized nuts and washers to basically serve the same function as the piece that came off, except better lol. With my new jury-rigged setup, it's working great. If the wooden section holding the stone was a little stouter, I'd give this 5 stars, but since it lasted only about 20minutes before forcing me to get creative in fixing it so I could use it, 2 stars.
