    I know it's an older thread, but I can't help being curious about this sharpener. It looks as though Maximum came as close as they possibly could to ripping off the Tormek design, and I wonder how their offering compares to the real deal. Sometimes the bearings in the less expensive machines make the more expensive machines worth the money. ;) I haven't had very good luck with motorized Mastercraft products (the cheaper, blue ones), but I've had decent success with the Mastercraft Maximum units.

    It is a good design, and there are happy Grizzly grinder users out there. I opted for the Tormek because I believe there was some issue about the Tormek jigs not working for the Grizzly machine. I don't even remember which Tormek jigs, or if none of them, were incompatible with the Grizzly.

    Hey guys. As the quest continues to find that perfect sharpening system, these are two that are very similar to the process I currently use. I thought I'd pick them up and give them a try because of the dirt cheap price. The Razor sharp system can be had for about 35 bucks if you shop around, and the leather strop belt also for about 30 bucks. These will both do an excellent job in a short amount of time. I don't recommend installing the wheels on a grinder that rotates at 3000rpm. I installed them on my buffer which is about half the rpm. I prefer the leather strop belt myself.
