I had Lee Valley’s first power sharpener, which made all the copy cats look like a poor impersonation there of. I sold it because the abrasives are too damn expensive and don’t last long. And you can’t get as good an edge as you need for hand tooling. That requires a grit well in excess of 1000x. I now use a grinder, belt sander and diamond or water stones approach.
