I'm going to keep watching this and see the answers you get. I'd be nice to have if it really works well.

Very expensive doo-hickey. I have a manual sharpener from Dritz that I paid around $15.00 for. I bought it at Hancocks several years ago.

I got the email that it was available. I ordered it for my guild. We go through a lot of blades when cutting for community quilts and this will be a quicker then the manual sharpeners. I'll give a review when I use it. I really like the Grace Tru Cut sharpener I have been using for me. I haven't changed blades in over a year! I put the date on the blade package. Remember always sharpen a sharp blade and it won't get dull. The blade is a goner if it gets a nick though.

That is a great tip and reminder about nicks in the blades :thumbup:

Sounds pricey at first but think about 5 60 mm blades and their cost! So wouldn't it save money in the long run? I would love to hear from you, Bella Boo, when your guild has evaluated it.
