Woodcraft is now selling a new Koch Sharpening system for $299. The new model is the same as the one shown here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eV3Rgpdti9c
The motor is Oriental and not as quiet as the old German model and the tool rest is not nearly as substantial as the old version but then again it is not $589! This little system was introduced to me by Nora Hall and it can put a perfect edge on a gouge in under a minute. At $300, very tempting. FYI

I recently spoke with Nora Hall who feels only the yellow and green wheels used with the green paste are needed for proper carving tool sharpening. She stated the red and blue wheels and blue paste are a waste of time and money.
