Worksharp 3000 is about $175 from Amazon. it works well as is for chisels. Wide blade attachment for plane blades runs about $55.

+1 if that’s in your budget. I too like the wide blade attachment for plane irons. But, you can do irons up to 2” in the chisel port as well so the added expense isn’t necessary.

If your budget isn’t so much and you already have stones of some sort, then the guide like syenefarmer linked in the first comment works well for plane blades. IMO, it requires some modification to work well for chisels though.

A middle-of-the-road budget option would be the Veritas guides. Either Mk1 or Mk2 depending on how much you want to spend and how much flexibility you need in the system.
