    Hi,

    Both of the bench grinders mentioned would sharpen your tools. The difference between the two seems to be size, the 200 is 8″ and the 250 is 10″. Bench grinders tend to be a bit aggressive so you would need to watch out for that. The Robert Sorby Pro Edge is a much better bet, it does cost more but its specifically set up to give perfect angles and the belts available allow you to tailor the aggression of the sharpening process.
