Reminds me of George...

David Weaver
Making a sharpener like that these days is probably a lot more accessible than it was years ago.

George mentioned doing the same thing - sharpening cutters on a rotating disc, and paying about $200 each for the discs. They're probably better quality than the ones that come from china now for $12 but I'm motivated to get a couple of those and make a machine to sharpen my bits. I'm using a router for mostly wasting, so if it doesn't do a perfect job, it doesn't matter.

I'm too dumb to match precise joints straight off of a machine, and a rotary disc could probably make my pattern bits (for guitars) last the rest of my life.
