Wow, thanks to everyone for the help!
So due to budgetary restrictions, and further youtube viewing I’ve settled on the following to start.

Rikon Wet stone slow speed sharpener – used to clean up old chisels/plane blades and put primary bevel on. (I Should have mentioned a lot of my chisels and planes are donations/inheritances and need to be cleaned up.)

- Honing guide and a 400/1200 Diamond stone for secondary bevel

- leather strop on my rikon sharpener for final polishing.

I figure i might as well spend a little money now on the stones i buy so the next round i can fork over cash for maybe a 3000 or 4000 grit diamond stone.

Im not interested in trying to keep stones flat and Im really only planning on “weekend woodworking” for now.

Im thinking my combination listed above should get me in the race at least. Ill let you know how i make out. Ill be using freshly sharpened chisels to cut my first mortise and tenons in a new assembly table base. I made the Marc Spagnuolo torsion box top from the wood whisperer and im going to put it on 4 legs with braces for now.

Wish me luck! Thanks again everyone!
