I tried using a dremel before, I get a chain sharp once before the stone was shot. :(

Same here. I tried using them on  rocked out chain before I gave up.

I think I have the dremel guide thing for the stones still somewhere. Basically new used once.

There was quite a few over on AS that are happy with that sharpener. It gives perfect angles every time. For some that haven't learned to round file with no guide I guess it's not that bad of a deal.

They are great for a quick touch up.
Or as I said they will polish a cutter so well that you can shave in it and with it.

They are NOT a substitute for a grinder in the hands of someone who knows how to set them up really well and will never replace the good old fashioned file.
The one I have is a 12 volt.
It was handy as heck to take to the woods for a quick touch up before I learned to file left handed.

The stones that come with them are pretty sorry.
Much better ones are available from hobby shops and machine shop supply houses.
