After years of sharpening stuff on sandpaper stuck to a floor tile, I decided to move up in the world.

At Ye Olde Junque Shoppe I found a small bench grinder for $20. The wheels are 1/2 X 5″ so I can’t find any that fit it but the gray ones that are on it still work.

I then stopped at the woodcraft store and bought a two-sided DMT diamond plate for fine/extra fine work.

Total investment: around $150 which includes a nice wheel dressing tool.

That should make things a bit easier. Now I can take on the sharpening of that drawknife. Need to build a jig for the grinder though.
