How do you like the WOODCRAFT Horizontal WetStone Grinder

I`m interested in this sharpening system for general sharpening and for my carving tools. This horizontal system seems like it might offer more control then a high speed grinder....interested if you like yours.

WOODCRAFT Horizontal WetStone Grinder Water is good, slow speed is great. Our wet stone grinder has a 7", 1000 grit stone rotating at a practically vibration free 420 RPM and a cool water drip. From gouges to plane blades and scissors to knives, you'll achieve that edge faster and with less effort than ever before - with no chance of bluing an edge. Includes adjustable tool platen. Accessory Planer/Joiner Jig lets you sharpen and hone knives up to 12" long. 110V, 1/6 HP motor. http://shop.woodcraft.com/Woodcraft/product_family.asp?family%5FidH66&gift lse&0pt%2Easp%2Cdept%5Fid%3D10000%26Tree%3D%2CDepartments&1pt%2Easp %2Cdept%5Fid%3D1021%26menu%5Fid%3D%26Tree%3D0%2CSharpening&2pt%2Easp%2Cde pt%5Fid%3D2054%26menu%5Fid%3D%26Tree%3D1%2CGrinders%20%2D%20Sharpening&GiftFalse&mscssid5C4AB7E4594EF4879AB59217BD1AC5

when it comes to sharpening you need accuracy and repeatability. think you will get that in a 89.00 machine? if you wan to use a machine to grind (there are few powered tools that can fully sharpen) you need to spend some money. or your going to just be unhappy. the makita works well or the new lee valley sharper is pretty good too. the delta sucks rocks. plus this one uses a odd size wheel so you can only buy from them.
