Scheppach 240V Sharpening and Honing System : Good tool for work shop

Great machine, what more can you i say.

Excellent tool for sharpening.

Needing to keep the knives sharp in my busy chippy i was fed up waiting and paying to have them sharpened. This is brilliant value and works well. One star off as my longer knives catch on the other wheel when sharpening. Also be careful and support the knife or make sure the attachment is securely attached. Otherwise you will get a knife throwing contest. Looked on you tube for methods and the results are fantastic. Time consuming but worth it.

I can sharpen most tools and knives. You need to buy extra jigs to sharpen some tools, but you’re better off making your own if you can as they’re a little expensive for what they are.

I needed a machine to grind new valves for a vintage car. It has done the job very well as it needed precision and slow wheel. I am extremely pleased with the result. It also sharpens knives well.

This machine is good enough, just. Please note the grinding wheel supplied with this product will need to be replaced immediately due to the fact it need dressing to make it round and its to soft . After just one chisel the wheel is now 170mm and the water bath is now full of blue sand. One other thing the reverse threaded spindle means that no matter how tight i did the nut as soon as the tool touches the wheel the wheel becomes loose this is probably down to the wheel being soft. So save up and by the the tormek as i will be doing and should have done.

If you use your common sense and take your time you get really good results, set up is key get you angles right and it’s great.

Be prepared to buy new sharpening jigs if you’re sharpening gouges or larger knives.

Very pleased with this tool, bought it for my sons birthday, hones his lathe chisels very nicely. Machine is very quite and easy to use.

I replaced the supplied jig with a tormek se-76 i have sharpened about 20 chisels some were in a dredfull condition and they are now razor sharp the total cost with the se-76 is around £150 well worth the money.

The stone need to be a better quality.

Brilliant tool, gave all my chisels an awesome edge.

An excellent piece of equipmenti haven’t found anything to dislike about itwell, it’s exactly what i hoped for, perfect for sharpening hand tools.
