    My first (and probably last commercial grinder) is a FireBall JR.
    You cant beat these style grinders for sharpening long or short sharp edge flat blades.

    If you are sharpening straight blades (not wavey or multi level) you will not find a better machine. Fireball Jr even though it is at the smallest machine offered has more than enough power to grind mower blades (you will not even start to slow down that motor). I am a one man show and at the time this purchase was a bit much BUT I am so happy that I did not settle for a cheaper unit.
