The Makita Sharpener is a necessity for the serious woodworker. It works like a motorized Japanese Waterstone (which in fact it is). Included in the basic package is a great blade rest that will accomodate most jointer/planer knives and a 1000 grit wheel. You have to practice a bit with the water control knob in order to keep the flow of water onto the wheel at the correct rate, but this is easily done. I recommend that you also purchase a coarser stone for use with removing knicks from your blades; this will save lots of time. One of the best features of this sharpener is that it is one of the few that will allow you to flat grind your edges; other water sharpeners like the DELTA and the TORMEK hollow-grind knives which removes a lot of metal from near the edge. This weakens, I believe, the knive blades when compared to flat grinding. You can also find a great technical supplement for using this sharpener.

I love this thing! I got mine and right away put my Dewalt planer blades to the test, I got a very sharp flat straight edge in minutes after reading through the directions once. I then took the guide off and sharpend my chisels and gouges after which I sharpened every knife I could find. The 1000 grit stone removes metal at just the right speed. After I get a good edge I turn it off and just hone the blades on the wheel while its not moving to put a finishing touch on the edge. I plan to buy the 6000 grit stone for hunting knifes and chisels. The water system takes practice and the plastic skirt around the stone that keeps water from spraying around has to be up or you get a mess. Its so easy to set up it saves a lot of time over using hand stones. I also plan to get the chisel guide to make getting a perfectly straight edge easyer to acheive

Verified Purchase
I bought this from Amazon in April of 2007. In those (almost) 4 years, I have formed some strong opinions. Please allow me to share them with you.

I just came up from the shop where I sharpened nine bevel chisels, five lathe chisels of various types, one plane iron, and three 6" jointer knives. My session took about 3 hours, including cleaning and drying the machine. My usual session is only an hour or so, but the lathe tools were in bad shape. All the tools were ground with the 1000 and 6000 grit stones. The lathe tools required a little fixing with the 120 grit stone first.

This machine requires some practice to get great results from it. I suggest reading highland's white paper on its use. It is on their web site. IMHO, if you are good with tools, you can learn to be expert with this machine.

Here is my setup:

Basic Makita machine with 1000 grit factory stone (and a spare 1000 grit stone I picked up somewhere).
Makita 6000 grit stone
Highland Woodworking 120 grit "green" stone
Highland Woodworking chisel jig. This thing is utter simplicity and only $15 or so.

Here are my experiences sharpening various types of tools:

Plane Irons - Fabulous. Using the Highland jig in the Makita tooling is just the ticket. Flattening the back of the iron is easy too.
Bevel Chisels - Excellent, just like plane irons.
Jointer Knives - Excellent. The Makita tooling is unsurpassed for knives.
Planer Knives - Don't know. I sharpen two 6" knives at a time, which can't be too different than a 12" planer knife though.
Lathe Chisels - Anything with bevels is easy - just like bevel chisels. Gouges must be done freehand, but that works fine.

I just bought a new 9820 after using my old one for over 20 years.

I am a full time professional woodworker and have sharpened my planer/jointer knives hundreds of times on this machine. With a little finesse in the set up, it does a fantastic job.

For planer/jointer knives I have always found the 1000 grit stone that comes with the machine more than adequate to produce a very sharp, long lasting edge. I own the course green wheel also, but seldom use it since I rarely damage my knife edges. But when I do put a nick in an edge, the green wheel makes short work of reestablishing a clean facet to sharpen with the 1000 grit wheel.

The machine is a mess to use, since the horizontally spinning stone slings water and stone/steel slurry all around. But since I am a woodworker and a metal worker, I am used to getting filthy while working so it does not bother me. I just make sure that it does not stain anything that I care about keeping clean.

I also own the chisel sharpening jig, but seldom use it. If I nick a chisel edge, I lightly touch it to a small belt sander, always making sure not to overheat the edge, and then sharpen on my diamond stones with the General sharpening jig. This is just much faster and less of a mess than using the 9820.

For me the 9820 is all about planer/jointer knife sharpening. This is where the machine shines. To not have to rely on a sharpening service makes learning to use the 9820 worth it.

No machine is perfect, and the 9820 is no exception. The plastic housing is somewhat fragile, so be careful not to over tighten the height post nobs. The steel backing plate of the stone rusts. I had to reglue the stone to the backing plate with construction adhesive.
