The pic I posted of the belt sander could be used. It wouldn't take to much work to make up a platform to use for blade sharpening so the edge of the blade is at the correct angle. I currently use a bench grinder that is setup to sharpen blades at 33* but it has a 8" wheel so it leaves a curve on the edge.
NO...........My belt sander is a cheapy made in China about 30 years ago. I dought if it could hold togeather at a faster belt speed. It worked OK for what I bought it for at the time but I need to upgrade to a more professional modern unit.
