I have used this technique for the same reasons you mentioned, and was satisfied with the end result. However, the sandpaper doesn’t last very long, and you need a wide selection of grits to do the job right. My setup is similar to the Woodsmith information in your link.

The problem is I don’t have an endless supply of all the the sandpaper grits when a blade needs sharpened! It would be nice to have a sharpening system ready to use when you need it, but economically, the sandpaper system is still my only option.
