I've had this tool for a few years and I am pleased with its performance overall. One can rig the blade guide to hold a narrow planer blade and with care and practise yields a good edge. Excellent results with jointer blades and chisels.
I like this tool because its very stable and easy to work with. Its how one presents the blade to the grinding wheel that determines the final sharpening result.

I'm sorry to say this is probably the worst tool purchase in my life. It works well for chisels and plane blades, but it just couldn't handle my jointer knives (which was why I bought it in the first place). I was looking for a near perfect sharpening, not an okay job. Maybe I'll give it another try someday, but for now it's sitting in a box under a bench. The problem I had was making fine adjustments and clamping long narrow blades. I'm sure with enough tweaking it could be made to work, but that's not what I was looking for at all. I could do a pretty good job with a home made jig and some sand paper, so this tool was a disappointment.

Always remember, ........it does not adjust itself on the grinding wheel, but, only you have to adjust the knife on the grinding wheel accordingly.

With some tweaking it performs very well. A little lube on the column make the depth gauge far more sensitive. With a bit of practice and careful adjusting it works great. Cleaned up several chisels and 15" planer blades. It will pay for itself quickly.

I have used this machine to sharpen chisels, planer and jointer blades with more than satisfactory results. Albeit the planer jig seems to have been designed for wider planer blades, used with a simple home-made adaptor for the 3/8 in wide planer blades, will yield improved handling and a uniform bevel across the entire length of a 13 in planer blade.
Properly aligned with a well dressed stone and practising one's technique will yield good results at an economical cost and, by being able to re-sharpen upon demand, minimizes any delay in project completion.
Compared to the many high quality and expensive sharpening systems available today, this machine offers a good compromise design making it affordable--especially for the home woodworker-- to re-sharpen such blades with confidence and economy,

It does not sharpen planer and jointer knives vety well. They do not come out straight. The up down adjustmeny leaves a lot to be desired. You pay for a cheap sharpener and that is what you get,
