Woodpeckers OneTIME Tool - Sharpening System- 2020 - 11 replies

Just recieved an email about a new oneTIME tool form Woodpeckers. I like the idea of having either one wide wheel or two wheels widely separated. But $150 is just too much. Does anyone know of a similar sharpening jig with either one wide wheel or two separated wheels? I know that the Veritas Mk II does. Are there any others?

Seal coat - 3 replies
