Amazon.com says they are not available.

Do a search for ‘nova sharpening’ (upper right) to see what some other LJ’s have had to say about it.

I have a Wolverine system and did not know anything about the Nova system looks okay. Gerry did not find a review here.

This one looks simpler and less flimsy.

I bought a Nova sharpening system – piece of junk! Then I bought the Wolverine system – what a difference! The Wolverine system actually works, and is more than worth the price, it’s also less expensive than the Nova .

PSI sharpening sytem is a Wolverine modified clone.

I have been using the Basic Wolverine System with optional Vari Grind jig for more than twenty years. Very small learning curve. Not sure about price difference between PSI or Wolverine but buy what you can afford.

Bill is right … the Wolverine (like other OneWay products) is more or less the gold standard (no offense to Powermatic intended). There is a reason so many schools, turning clubs, and amateurs and professionals alike opt for the Wolverine … it is easy to use, well designed and supported, and produces good results.
