Rampage,

I purchased a Grizzly planer sharpener new for about $250. It is rated for blades up to 24 inches. Once I got it set up I found it kind of unhandy to use. It’s awkward securing the blades into the fixture, plus you actually grind the blades upside down. You have to flip them over to see the progress your making on the bevels. It’s great for grinding chisels that’s about it.
