Yeah, waterstones cut pretty fast and a lot of people say the Shaptons
cut the fastest and wear the longest. I've got a set of Shaptons, and
in my opinion they do cut faster - but not by a lot. Your arms and
fingers are still going to get a workout, believe me.
If your intention is making your woodworking life easier, I'd say get a
Tormeck. I think it'll be a little slower, certainly more money and
there's probably a whole new learning curve, but I bet you'd save a lot
of wear and tear on your arms.
In fact, your sort of situation is about the only thing that would make
me consider the Tormeck system or something like it. It looks like it
would do the job just as well as the combination of a good set of
stones, practice, and elbow grease. If'n it hurt to apply the elbow
grease, I wouldn't like woodworking so much.
My hat's off to ya. Hang in there.
