I bought one of these many years ago for under $30 including shipping. Works okay on thin scrapers when remember to use it. Not great for thick scrapers.

I've looked at them but I haven't had any trouble raising burr's with diamond hone so I've never spent the money.

I am assuming that you mean this one. If this is the one that you mean, I have this one and I think that it was well worth the money. While experienced turners are masters in the art of getting their turning tools exactly the way they should be when it comes to sharpening, there are those of us who need a little help. I have been using this burnisher for about a year and I find that it places a nice burr on my round nose and flat scrapers with little to no effort. Personally, I really like it and use it all the time. I know that the price seems a little steep, and I asked for mine for a birthday or Christmas gift so it was free to me, but I still love it and knowing what I know now, I would purchase it myself if I had to. I hope this helps.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"
