answer 2
Yes, you could, but something like a lawn mower blade can be done a lot easier with just a good fine file and a bench vise. It would be a bit excessive to get this just for sharpening lawn mower blades when this is intended for something needing a lot more precision and a razor sharp edge. For my lawn mower blade I use a air angle grinder with a medium or fine sanding disc.

answer 3
You can.

I did this on a dare/as a gag. The blade was sharp enough to cut paper.

If you've been hitting stones with your power mower, you might want to pre-sharpen the blade with a bench grinder first.

What I found interesting? Your lawn will look better with razor sharp blades. I didn't believe it -- but learned the lawn looks crummy if the grass blades are "frayed". Deploying a sharp edge makes a clean cut of the grass leaf, thus making the lawn look better.

Odd discovery.

The replacement wheels for this Northern Industrial wet sharpening system are available through our parts department direct at phone number 1-(800)-222-5381.

The wheels are specific to this system and they do not come in any other grits.

answer 2
Yes and no.

a. If you are steady, you can free-hand a planer knife. I find free-handing will suffice if you are just "touching up" the blade.

b. If you have a nicked-up blade you'll need to remove some metal from your knife. That will require you to either make or buy a jig. I made one and it does a beautiful job.

I saw many complaints with this tool. ..Unfounded. This sharpener does an incredible job for the price. You can make a knife/blade/whatever surgically sharp with a little practice..

Question

Does it have its own jigs for lathe chisels?

Does it have its own jigs or holders for sharpening the bowl gouges and other chisels for wood lathes or does it take the expensive ones for the Tormak wet grinder? If it doesn't have its own can it use the less expensive ones used with the Jet wet grinder? If I bought this it would be for sharpening all my lathe chisels for my wood lathe and the knives or blades for my jointer and I need to price the attachments for using it.
