Default Looks interesting

Has anyone owned or used the tool in the link below? I can't find any info on it good or bad..It is affordable and if it will dress the end mill lips I might spring for one.

I've never owned or used one but I saw one used about 30 years ago. The machinist said it worked very well and saved a lot of $ on new bits. I don't know what brand it was unfortunately.

Had one of them before, or something like it, set it up on the surface grinder If I remember, we had good luck with the endmills 1/2 and up, the little ones were tossed or touched up by hand.

I have seen that style several times and it is used on a surface grinder if I recall. You can also purchase a small version that does end mills standing up alomost vertically (a few degrees off 90 for the flute lead) and its basically a collet holder that sits on a mag chuck.
