Just checked the Timberwolf site, and they offer blades, sharpening services, a dual tooth setter, and cams for both Cooks and Woodmizer sharpening systems.  But did not find a sharpener.  Price of their dual tooth setter is 1145, and the cam is 42 each. So if you use their blades, you can get a cam to sharpen their blades but have to use a Cooks or WM sharpener looks like.
Most everything I enjoy doing turns out to be work

First let me just say,  I am not trying to promote wooland mill or my YouTube channel. That being said, the Woodland mills tooth setter is cheaper than most others.  The automatic blade sharpener is also cheap compared to the others, then compare the prices of replacing grinding stones and woodland mills is a great buy.  I have just posted a youtube video on blade setting with woodland mills,  I have only set a few blades myself it is very easy and it will allow you to play around with the degree of your set,  find what works best for you and your type of logs.  I have not yet tried to set a blade for speed however it is less than 5 min and it is easy after the first time you do it.

 Good for you!
   You won't regret it.
   I bought a Cat Claw set a couple of years ago. Works perfect for me.
  It is what you have and getting used to it that counts, Not the Brand you get.

Hudson has a new sharpener they claim will sharpen band blades and saw chains. Not sure why there not a sponsor. I would personally stick with a sponsor off of the forum
