Hey orangemower, I appreciate your concern about the price of the Burr King, but I don't think you would be happy trying to sharpen your blades with that "sander". I at once thought that would work also but when I took a closer look it just wouldn't work. That unit is intended for light wood sanding and to maybe sharpen a tool here and there. It would be tough to even keep the proper angle when sharpening a blade. You would be better off just buying a dedicated blade grinder if you want something less expensive. The reason the Burr King grinder works is because of the blade sharpening plate/adapter that they designed and attache to their grinder which makes it easy to sharpen at the right angle. True the Burr King is super heavy duty, an overkill, and expensive but it sure does a wonderful job and should last a lifetime.
