    Does anyone know of an electric rotary blade sharpener? I thought I saw one on a quilting website for about $70. I can't seem to find it again. Thanks

    The TruSharp one is just over $50 at Connecting Threads. I think that's the cheapest I've seen it advertised:

    Just a quick look around and I see prices anywhere from $59 to $88 for the same exact model.

    The link is fixed.

    I don't have this notion. I've been able to buy Olfa blades on eBay in large lots so it works out to a very economical ppb for me. I just toss the old blade when I put in a new one. I've got enough to last me for years.

    I've read positive reviews about the sharpener. The most often cited con is the price.

    YMMV.
