PERFECT ON THE JOB TOOL
This machine does exactly what it says it will do. hone blades. If you want to grind blades buy a grinder with 1600 rpm and a 40 grit wheel. If you don't know the difference maybe you should not play with sharp things.

people expect too much
I have noticed that the wheel is SLIGHTLY off, but all in all is quite sufficient to put a good edge on anything I sharpen, provided I follow up with a swipe or two on a fine stone, which is the proper method anyhow. I'm not sure what others expect when they purhcase something, but I expect functionality and operation. both are present in this unit. If you don't know how to use power tools to sharpen blades, you will not like this unit. My only complaint is I've worn my wheel down enough to need a replacement, but cannot find one

Gets the job done for the right cost

I use this when a blade gets really dull. I use it to re-set the bevel. I then finish up with an angle sharpener (Spyderco Sharpmaker is excellent). I use this freehand on moderate priced knives such as Swiss Army and Case. I wouldn't use it on my really expensive knives as there is some margin for error. For the cost it is excellent. This is the only slow turning sharpener I've found for under $100. Compact (relatively) size is nice also.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Not a sharpener for the craftsmen

If you want to really sharpen good knives, blades, chisels etc, look for another sharpener. The speed is way to slow, the stone is too coarse and drum wobbles when it turns.

Great for the price!

I was looking for a sharpener for my new hobby of wood turning. I was not sure if I would like the hobby so I did not want to spend too much for a sharpener. This sharpener cost me less than $ 60.00. It works fantastic with my chisels!! The only downfall is the plastic tool supports.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

craftsman utility sharpener 211741

I thought this sharpener great once I figured out the angles for the guides. I wish it had a better system for the guides. Like an auto lock for chisels, One for knives, one for scissors . Also Sears does not carry a 220 grit stone for this sharpener and I would like to buy one. All in all I would recomend this tool to a friend for lite work. Anyone have a link for a 220 grit stone that fits this sharpener

I would recommend this product to a friend.

IT'S SUPPOSED TO TURN SLOWLY !!!!!!!!!!!

I bought this just for the fact that it turns slowly. A machine that turns slowly is superior for sharpening tools because It produces a better longer lasting edge. If you want something that turns faster buy a bench grinder. I use this to put a quick edge on my knives then I finish them up with a whetstone and a leather strop like barbers use to sharpen their razors. I'm writing this because of the negative reviews I've seen here where the reviewers say it turns too slowly. This is what it is supposed to do.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Never could try it because it was broken out of the box

I bought this thinking I was getting a good deal. It was a closeout item marked $35 instead of $50. It appeared to be in brand new condition, but it made a horrible noise when I turned it on and the wheel barely spun. I opted to not exchange for a new one.

Works for lathe tools

I've been using this for a number of years to sharpen lathe tools.  As it runs at a lower speed than the usual grinder, it works very well. Lathe tool sharpeners run several hundred dollars, so this is a real deal for the money. Tends to leak water a little, but with practice, puts on a good edge.

It just died, but i'm going to go buy another one.

wobbles, then stone broke

This was an impulse buy...you know...walking through the store while the significant other is shopping elsewhere.  Big mistake.  The stone has a wobble to it right out of the box.  It was slight on mine.  I didn't know any better, and figured I didn't know what I was doing.  I couldn't hold my knife correctly to get an even edge.

Turns out that the rest doesn't stay square because of the all the cheap plastic parts.  And, the wheel is not true, even if you could get the rest to stay stationer.  Even the slightest pressure pushes the rest out of whack.

Slow.  Granted, it's designed to be a slow-turning wheel.  But, there's no strength behind it.  Push to hard, and the wheel starts to slow down.  It's more like a stone for honing.  Useless if you're trying to get nicks out of a blade and get it back to a straight cutting surface.

Useless on my axe and my shovel.  Worked on the axe for about 1/2 hour, and I could have done better with a file or some sandpaper.  All I got was 1/8-inch of paint and rust removed.

Let it sit in disgust.  A few months later, decided to work on a pocket knife.  Filled the tray with water, plugged it in, turned it on.  Snap!  The stone broke in half with the motor buzzing away.

Truly a waste of money and time.  For $100, I'm asking Santa for a work sharp tool sharpener.
