    My only complaint with the EWT is, that I didn’t buy it sooner. I have over 30 bowl gouges, skews, and assorted other tools that I just had to have. I bought a slow speed grinder, with several attachments for getting the right angle when sharpening those tools. I have turned over 200 pens with the full size EWT, using the rougher and the finisher tool. I bought one extra set of replacement blades, but I have since discovered the blades (inserts) can be sharpened using the Trend credit card size sharpening stone. I guess you can call it a stone, it’s pretty thin. The end result is, the insert returns to a very sharp state with only a few strokes on the flat side, using the cutting oil. I’m sure it can’t be re sharpened indefinitely, but it sure works for now.  I have turned wood, plastic and tru stone with remarkable results. No I don’t work for the company, I’m just some 76 year old guy that likes to turn pens and bowls for fun. No more ABC, watch the angle of the dangle and all those other tricks with those other tools. Every once in awhile something comes along that works as advertised.

    Obviously you can save a lot of money setting up woodworking by yourself instead of buying it.
