Mower Blade Grinder

Do any of y'all use the Oregon blade grinder or Magna Matic blade grinder (or any blade grinder that is made specifically for sharpening lawn mower blades)? I have been using a traditional bench grinder or an angle grinder, to sharpen my blades. Are the Lawn Mower Grinders worth $600-$1000?

I was using a bench grinder then i finally broke down and spent $500 on an oregon blade grinder. Worth every penny in saved time and even blades. No question.

No. Actually RBG (Rotary Blade Grinders) not associated with Rotary Corp., are made in Indianapolis, IN.
