At $259 I would need to buy a bunch of blades before I would break even.
I guess if you were going through a couple sets of blades a year on
a jointer and a planer then it might pay off. Or if you had someone
close by that you could share the cost and use with that could work too.

I do not have that model but have a similar item, and it works well,

I bought one several years ago and found that 3450 rpm is too fast. Works great for large blades like the ones on a tree chipper but fine blades like chisels and planes heat so fast it is very difficult to keep them from burning. You really need a dresser for the wheel, keeping the stone clean is key to lower heat sharpening. Anyone know if the silicone carbide stones would run cooler than the aluminum oxide?
