Fortunately I read the instructions which emphasized the initial runs would be to acquire a new angle, and from then the machine would sharpen the knife with a consistent hollow grind. My first attempts were disappointing because of the roughness of the first cuts, and I thought there would be a lot of lost metal and burrs to deal with, but after the 3rd try and a little trust in the instructions I found the groove and the type of knife the Mcgowan was suitable for and haven't looked back since then.
My suggestion for those who have run into a similar situation is to be patient and by the 5th or 6th light pull through the dual up-turning wheels, you will feel the tension of the metal start to ease up, and if you take a look at the edge using a 30x microscope, you will not see burring which means the machine can turn out a razor sharp edge in a shorter time than any other consumer sharpening machine, at least in my experience.
My thanks to the other users whose feedback makes shopping at Amazon a positive and reliable adventure.

About the only downside it has is shared with most sharpeners in that you must pass a knife through about 10 times the first time you use it to "re-cut" the bevel to match the bevel angle of the sharpener.
I thin over the years I've bought about a dozen of these as I've given one to all of my family and close friends
This one replaced my older model with ordinary stones, which went to the garage as a utility sharpener - does great on the front portion of a utility knife, and is much faster than changing blades. Though it took a few knives to "break in" the diamond stones, it seems now to be as good as my older one, made by Hutchenson Industries, but apparently the same as the McGowan.
Contrary to a goodly supply of hucksters, knives get dull. Rather than purchase expensive knives, buy this sharpener and less expensive knives, or, as I did, go the the Goodwill. I have kept my "Goodwill" knives razor sharp for many decades, and, thanks to Hutchenson and McGowan, for the past few decades, that has been simple and easy. Thanks to this sharpener and its predecessor, my ceramic "steel" is used only on the most demanding occasions.
Follow the directions: the less expensive knives take a lot less time to sharpen, while the good blade steel takes a while to get a good edge, have patience and the edge will come.
I like this sharpener so well that I am purchasing them for each of my three children!
