Rated 3 out of 5 by Average, could be better By I. H. Giblett on 10 Aug. 2016 I bought this two years ago as I wanted a decent wet stone grinder that didn't cost the earth. This machine and accessories are indeed cheaper than the top of the range rival and it does show. What I don't like: - The water trough is very fiddly to put on. - The so called 'straight edge jig' has put a skew on all of my chisels. This is because various bits of the machine are not plumb. I've followed the tutorial DVD to the letter and I still can't produce a square edge on my chisels. - The truing tool is a total faff to use and tends to leave trenches in my stone. (This turned out to be a faulty truing tool which Record Power replaced after a few weeks of complaint.) -Out of the box, the wheel was not true so I had to spend a lot of time truing it before I could sharpen anything. -The rubber on the axe jig split and came off very quickly. What I do like: -It's very sold, heavy and does not move around. -It doesn't splash very much. -After two years, it's still going strong. I've sharpened chisels, kitchen knives, axes and billhooks. -The jigs and accessories are generally cheaper than the blue rival. All in all, I don't hate this machine but I do wish I had spent the extra cash on the more accurately built Tormek T7 11 Aug 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well worrth a punt! I bought this as the similar machine I use at work (made by a Scandinavian firm), left a lot to be desired! I was not disappointed. Great features on this machine and Record can be relied upon for spares etc. 15 Apr 2014
