Topic tags/keywords: wet sharpener craftex ct 191

It’s on sale right now but I can’t find any reviews other than one on the Busy Bee tools website which I have to be a bit skeptical of.
It’s a fair bit cheaper than a lot of others out there so I’m a bit hesitant. I’d like a Tormek but it’s four times the price (and about four times more money than I have…)

Don’t discount the venerable Makita horizontal wet sharpener. I’ve had mine for over 20 years, and it still does a great job on knives, chisels, plane irons, etc.
Stupid simple design, and mine has been bullet proof——————well, I haven’t shot at it, but…………..

I’m in Canada. The Grizzly website has that unit at 230 Canadian dollars. After adding shipping and duties it’s probably closer to $300. The other one that is easy for me to get here is the Rikon but it’s about $350. Wen is 280. Tormek is 800. I don’t have a lot of good options up here.

Have your say...
