    Well, the sharpener is cheap and cheerful, it might even work well. I wonder if the emery wheel is for use with HSS saw blades?

      The sharpener probably works, but works well would be a stretch. I've got the Chicago Electric chainsaw sharpener, and while I can get it to sharpen a saw chain, it's definitely not a high quality tool. There is basically no repeatability, and the grinding head can be flexed significantly (1/32" or more) in either direction when sharpening with very little pressure. I've seen a video of the circ saw sharpener in use and it's in the same category.

        Those wheels look like they might work well to sharpen serrated knife blades.

          They could have all sorts of uses if it wasn't for the 10mm arbor hole. I have similar wheels for my T&C grinder with standard 1-1/4" arbor hole.

            It would do that. "Emery" is (impure) aluminum oxide, which cuts HSS just fine.
