This looks like a pretty good buy, what do you Lumberjocks think?

I have a lot of old dull blades hanging around.

Does anyone have one of these?

60 bucks- It cant be too good.
But for 50 bucks you can’t get hurt either.

If it’s from China – forget what I just said.

I can’t imagine needing this unless you have a chipped tooth.
I have a set of Spyderco sharpening stones and those work well to sharpen the blades.
I found if you keep your blades clean, you hardly ever need to sharpen them.

Looks ok for blades with large spacing betwen the teeth, but you might have problems with 60, 80, 100 tooth blades.

I personally use a diamond file just to hone the edges, but I agree with cmaeda, keep the blades clean (carbide toothed) and you do not have to sharpen or hone them too often.

For $60, you are not going too loose too much if does not work too well, just try it out on an old blade that does not have too much value.

No Dick but it will make a great review when you do buy it. LOL
I get my blades sharpened for around $20Aus, I guess if it worked well & took different sized blades & required little maintenance & was easy to use I might think about it.

What about balnceing the blade? This can cuase major problems if too much is removed from one side.

probably be alright for general cheap carpentry blade. I wouldn’t
use such a thing as a substitute for quality grinding on a cabinet-making
blade – Forrest, Systematic, etc..

I saw some probablys, I thinks, and what abouts, etc. It would be nice to hear from someone who has actually used the item. I suspect that Dick and Barb saw this item at Harborfreight. If you go to their website, you will find it at that price. I too wondered if it actually worked well.

I don’t think that this item has been available from Harbor Freights for very long. I am a bit of a fanatic for flyers and coupons from HF and have only noticed it being listed for the last 2 months. May well be that is the reason no one has had any experience with it. BTW, I look a lot and buy very little so I don’t have it either.

It only does 15 3/4, my blade is 16” with a 1 1/8 arbor. So it won’t fit but I saw it in a recent catalog.

I’m still undecided about buying this machine, because I’m like the some of the other guys.

I’ve been hand sharpening with my diamond stone for years.

I guess I’m still in the stone age.

There might be some other machine lurking out there for me.
