Power sharpening systems can provide a home with a means of keeping hand tools for the garden, home repair and even certain kitchen utensils sharp and ready for use. These systems are small and are able to fit on a garage shelf without taking up a great deal of room like some industrial grade sharpeners.

Drill Doctor 750X

The Drill Doctor 750X is manufactured by Darex. The company designed this power sharpening system specifically to sharpen drill bit types such as twist bits with a point angle of 114 to 150 degrees, split point bits and standard drill bits. The Drill Doctor is able to sharpen broken drill bits. The device also features a variable alignment to enable users to customise drill bit bevel and relief angle, according to Highland Wood Working.

Veritas Mk.II Power Sharpening System

The Veritas Mk.II sharpening system is designed to hone the blades of hand tools such as chisels and carving gouges. A turntable fitted with modern abrasive surfaces that is electronically set to spin at over 650rpm supports the system. An adjustable tool rest allows you to set the bevel angle for tool sharpening from 15 to 45 degrees. The abrasion rate for the system is completely adjustable allowing users to sharpen V-tools and curved edge hand tools.

Jool Tool

The Jool Tool is a freehand polisher, grinder and tool sharpener. Its variable speed motor has a minimum speed of 500rpm and maximum speed of 5000rpm. The sharpening tool's design creates enough wind speed to prevent overheating of the hand tool being sharpened and is adjustable up to 17 degrees to allow ease of use. The Jool Tool also features a spark guard and several varieties of grinding discs including ceramic, micron and trizact.

Tormek T-7 Grinder

The Swedish-made Tormek grinding system features a 10-inch ceramic and aluminium-oxide grinding wheel. The wheel's cooling system provides a constant stream of water to keep it from overheating. A water tray built into the system catches grinding dust and prevents water spray through the sharpening process. The Tormek's adjustable tool bar and grinder jigs allow users to sharpen a wide variety of hand tools, including knives and other kitchen tools.
