I keep looking and trying to decide whether to order one.  What model did you decide on?

Congratulations, it will turn sharpening into a non event.

I just ordered the Woodmizer auto grinder and auto setter. I forget the model numbers. My local guy that was doing my sharpening raised his prices and has been struggling to keep up for the last couple months. I figured, if Iím running the carbon steel blades, it would pay for itself in 6-7 months at the new price. The timing wasnít great for spending 5k, but it was time to make the move.

I just looked at the Veil sharpener on their web site. I'm no expert but thats the first I have seen where the CBN wheel is stationary and the blade moves up and down to grind. Is that unique to them? 
I'm also considering investing in a sharpener and from what I read, CBN is the way to go. The price of this one is easier to swallow compared to the other CBN's I have seen. 
Do you have experience with their sharpener or know someone that does? What made you choose it?

Doesn't seem to be much info about the Veil online.  I'd be interested in seeing a video of it working once you get it up and running.

There is some video of the unit running on u tube 
I stumbled across it and like how easy it was to set up and the space it takes up.
The other reason was it was cbn with a dry set up.
I'm very sensitive to oil now for some reason. I don't know if it's because of all the meds I'm on or what.
I know the wheels won't last as long dry.
I researched dry cbn and there are lots of things it's used on.
Cost is another issue it looks well built.
The Woodmizer set up is out of my budget at the moment. 
Things are going well , but I have other things to buy coming up as well.

I had to dig around and find the Viel on Youtube. That is a very interesting concept, I think it will work slick. Bruno, I think you will find how it gives those two seperate light kisses will do a very nice job. It's also a great idea, the way it is configure it doesn't look like it will take much more space than a bench grinder. Very cool, I can't wait until you get it!

That is interesting. Would love to see how the feed works mechanically. Dosen't seem to be terribly hard on the grind so maybe wheel life will be better than you expect.

With a CBN, a different wheel is required for each hook angle? Correct?

$1,400.00 US + $135 shipping to my yard
The grinder is a baldor which is a good brand unit.

Just checked out the videos . Very neat idea. First time if seen that approach to sharpening . 

Most of their tools are first rate so this should be no exception . You will defiantly have to give us the details on how it performs . If I had not just got a ď free to me ď fully auto Dinasaw grinder Iím. Thinking I would be stopping in at their shop to check one of those out .

I wonder how hard it is to source different CBN stones . I run Kasco blades .

Crossroads, I ordered a BMS 250 and BMT 250 from Woodmizer on May 28th of this year, still not here. The setter is ready, but they can't get the sharpeners. Got an email yesterday said maybe in a couple weeks.
