Haven't used either one you have listed although I have seen the penn state one in their catalog. I too use the Wolverine system from Oneway and like its ease of use and durability.

The standard that most people use is a 8 inch Woodcraft slow speed grinder with the Oneway Wolverine and Vari-grind attachment.

Anybody have experience with the Work Sharp Sharpening system, other that for drill bits.

sharpening system

I would go with the wolverine and invest in a slow grinder with 8" wheels. Invest in some good norton wheels while you are spending all the hard earned cash.

I am not familiar with either sharpening system that you have mentioned. I rely on my water stones and this sharpening system that I have.,43072
Thus far, I am happy with it and the results have been fantastic. Low rpm for greater control and a great flexibility for sharpening pretty much anything.

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

I've been pleased with the Scheppach Tiger 2000 wet/dry system. It goes on sale for ~$130. It accepts the Tormek/Jet style attachments, and works similarly but has an 8" wheel instead of 10".
