    I am looking to buy a RBG blade sharpender...i have never seen one in person so i need a couple questions answered.....how hard are they to sharpin blades with do you just slide them on the platform by the wheel or do you still have to angle the blade as you do with your 45 buck home cheapo sharpener? Also Have any of you all used J Thomas becouse this is most likely who i will order one threw? I am look at a 437.00 Professional (1/2 HP) model has anyone used this and how do you all like it...

    PLEASE HELP ME i do not want to waste 500 bucks on somethin that isnt good any imput is VERY much APPRECIATED

    Raising and lowering the wheel changes the angle pitch. Just adjust it to the right angle and you slide the blade flat across the table section of the grinder.
    Have had an RBG for years with no issues.
    Good luck!

    You just crank it to match the pitch or set whatever bevel pitch you want.
