Does anyone use the Delta Universal Wet/Dry Grinder for sharpening their tools (planes & chisels)?

I have an identically designed knock-off sharpener which, I think, came from MLCS Woodworking. It may, in fact, be a little better than the Delta because it has a nice tool rest for the large wet stone. It does a decent job, once the stone is dressed.

To be honest, I don’t use it too much. I sharpen chisels and plane irons on oil stones or a piece of plate glass with super fine wet/dry sandpaper followed by honing on leather. The Delta-style sharpener gets used more on my old rough use bench chisels, axes and, once in a while, large kitchen knives for my son.

If you’re really interested in this style of sharpening system and really have a lot of use for it, same you money for a Tormek.
