    I use a belt sander as well, hone, and then buff & strope. I'd probably be sold on a sharpener if I tried one, will be watching this thread.

    I do have a drill doctor that I like for drill bits

    I use a slow speed grinder with a white wheel for my bull nose lathe tool (can't think if its correct name) as I can't get the right turn or angle on the Workshop grinder/sharpener. For my skews and wood chisels and pocket knife, the Workshop with the glass circle and sticky sand paper makes them razor sharp!! Used to use my belt sander that I use to "rough" up the pen tubes. The workshop and slow grinder are my best bets for my tools that need sharpening.

    I use my 6" grinder which has a white 120 grit on one end & a 60 grit on the other end to square the end of the plane blade or chisel up & then onto the Worksharp 3000. I want to get the adjustable platform to set the blade on to hold the item at the right angle to get the starting bevel & then onto the Worksharp 3000. I also have water stones up to 8000.
