  • Makita Electric Sharperer 9820-2

    I jst picked up a Makita electric sharpener. I found it on Craigslist for 100.00. It seemed like a good price on a nifty tool. It will be handy for touching up my planer and jointer knives in addition to everything else. Has anyone else tried one of these?

    Thank you,
    Dan

    I have not tried one Dan, but I think sbirkes on the forum (think thats correct ) has a similar machine and loves it, he said even with no reverse he can sharpen a carving knife. Nice machine, great price !

            Well here's the verdict. It took me about 5 minutes to put a razor edge on a severly abused V gouge. (No bevel, no straight edges). I will try it tomorow on one of my japanese V gouges that I have been fighting with. I think this tool will tame it. If you get a chance to get one of these on the cheap, grab it. Maybe even if it's not cheap!
            Take care,
            Dan
