    rotary blades

    Saw a rotary blade sharpener on a website and am wondering if buying one is good or bad:i.e.worth the money. Thanks

    I have the tru cut electric sharpener, personally I like it because it
    saves me money for other things besides blades.

    But there are many other who don't like it.

    So I guess it is mostly a matter taste.

    I love the Tru Cut sharpener. Joann.com has them on sale frequently. Not right now however.

    I don't have one - don't have to change blades that often so it seemed like a waste. I do have extra blades that were purchased with a 40% off coupon.

    I have the Orbitol sharpener ($39) in Canada and have not been impressed. I previously had the manual green one with the sandpaper discs and it sharpened them somewhat but it wasn't the same as using a new blade. I now buy blades in quantity when they are on sale.

    I have the one Shelbie has, it works pretty good. I have lots of blades. Some last longer than others.

    I have tried different rotary blade sharpeners over the years with disappointing results. I tried out the TrueSharp Power Rotary Blade sharpener....this one does finally work.
