I ran a sharpening shop for 10+ years and used a lot of Foley-Belsaw equipment but the sharpall, in my estimation, makes a good boat anchor. They will tell you that you can sharpen everything on it but one really needs a dedicated machine, designed for the application, rather than something that isn’t really good at much of any one thing. Some would swear by the sharpall to sharpen steel saw blades but I found ways that did the job as well, perhaps better, that was easier. The sharpall will not do carbide saw blades at all—not enough precision. I’d save my money for some dedicated equipment. My 2 cents worth.
