While sharpening a plane iron the other day, I made a simple jig to produce the desired angle.  I simply cut a block of hardwood to the desired angle and fastened the plane iron to the block with a wood screw and some washers.  It worked well, and the hardwood did not clog the stone as one might expect.  In fact, after oil is absorbed, it works as well as one of the more expensive options.  I am making several for the different angles required on some specialty planes.
