Wright Tools Sharpener
« on: October 29, 2018, 11:44:45 AM »
Anyone ever use on of the Wright band sharpeners?  If so are they a good machine?
The W-37 drag type sharpener is the model I'm looking at.
They make other much more expensive equipment also.

Looking at it, it seems fairly well built and cams are available for quite a few different saw bands.

What do those cost. I was looking at them. If they don't put cost on the sites I usually don't bother with inquiring.

 I bought one when I bought my mill, sharpened around 9000 bands so far and still works great.  I did have to replace 2 $3 bearing.  Built  good is right.   SSteve

Though I can't speak for this grinder, Wright equipment is built solid.  I'm curious if this will continue now that they're owned by Simonds.

I have one and like it, came used with Logmaster mill. Big step up from old Wood Mizer model I had. But the MW had seen plenty of use

Well based on several members here giving a good report on this sharpener, I pulled the trigger on a used one that looks to be in very good shape. I am sure there will be some questions as I have never used a sharpener like this....  Should have it next week.

LOL, that would be me! Just bought a mill and was looking for a decent used sharpener and felt this would fill the bill. Made the seller an offer $55 under the asking price and he/she took it. Will report when it arrives.

I have a wright and as much as I like it I cant recommend buying a new one.

First, cams are difficult to find the right one for the profile and are $150+ custom cams are available but not even feasible at and I quote wright "over $1000".

Second,  new they are $2100 and a wm bms250 is $1800. So for the same money you can get a bms250, 4 gal of kasco mineral oil and a rixsaws cbn wheel in your choice of profile and be better off.

 I think they are buying used ones for around $600.  Mine came with 2 cams one each for 7/8 and 3/4.  With a little fine tuning you can make those cams follow most profiles, probably not the 40 degree  back angle ones like the turbo 7 and Cooks super sharp which I wont use as they don't take a nail hit very well with not much behind the tooth tips.  Steve

Ladylake, you are in the zone on price. In fact I frequently gain good info from your posts and you were certainly influential in my purchasing a TimberKing B20 and this sharpener. It has 4 cams with it, including both the sizes you recommend. I may be asking for your advice in getting this setup.

The knowledge members here share is quite remarkable! Thanks again to all!

Those wright are without a doubt are the most accurate drag sharpeners available,  but they still ain't no cbn.
