Shopdog, the $559 is over the course of twenty years. Try to determine how much you have spent over the last twenty years on sandpaper. That was the whole point of my comment; cost over the long run. If you use 12 sheets of sandpaper per year, what is your cost? I ask because I have no idea what you pay for your sandpaper. Maybe someone gave it you and it had no cost.

Lastly, this isn’t about accusations and “I Think My System Is Better Than Yours”. I am trying to get some input from people who sharpen with sandpaper to show what their cost is. Cost is almost always why people choose the system they choose. And when you are looking at a system someone will use over a sustained period of time, the cost over that time should be a factor. Heck, maybe I have been misled and sandpaper sharpening really is more cost effective.

P.S. – I like your shopdog! Good looking Lab.
