I have their sharpening system and it works pretty well, compared to the others.  The thing I like about it is that it works like the Wolverine system but doesn't require 10 add-ons to grind every tool.

I purchased the Woodcut Bowlsaver a few years ago and to-date have cored 50-100 blanks and have not yet had to resharpen the cutter.

Most have been wet wood (easy going) between 10 14 inches.

The system is easy to use but it is not idiot proof (I am evidence of that!).

I used it quite successfully on my old 1/2 HP lathe, but had to feed very slowly to prevent stalling the motor. On my new 2HP lathe, that’s not a problem, but the tool bar will chatter some if you get too anxious.

I’ve never used any other bowl-saving system. This one looked the least intimidating… which is why I bought it.
