I have worn out three crowbars trying to get my wallet open far enough
to buy a new Makita 9820-2 sharpener (it's been on my wish list at
Amazon since last October)
During this time I have used glass and sandpaper as well as a couple
waterstones from Lee Valley and my planes and chisels are not scary
sharp but they are at least pretty doggoned intimidating sharp.
Problem is I have jointer and planer blades coming up for sharpening
pretty soon so I guess I'll have to get off the pot.
I've bid on almost every makita sharpener that has come up on ebay in
the last year but my limit is $150.00 for a used one and they always
bring more than that.
Before I buy a mega-crowbar and take the plunge has anyone used the
It looks somewhat like the Makita and costs a lot less.
I checked with Mister Google and he has no info.
