Thin blades have to be clamped in a jig.in fact all blades have to clamped.Make shift methods may work but its best to buy the right machine for the job.My Belsaw sharp All and Planer cost money but they paid back.I had a moderate income when I bought them but the machines made money.My 4x6 power hack saw made it possible to build things that were impossible before I had it.You will never get any where being a pinch penny.There are Belsaw Sharp Alls for sale cheap.I see the Lincoln 225 welders for sale for 100.00 on Craigs list often.My Log hauler cost 200 bucks to build because I have the welder and 4x6 saw.Ready made 2000.00.If you smoke cigaretts you are wasting 300 bucks a month.That money could buy a new planer blade sharpener.A bit of advise from and old man who has been there and done that.Take it or leave it.

Agree with 36, look around for a Belsaw. I see them 5-6 times a year on CL or in the sales papers. They might go $300 with attachments and books. But you need to know what you're looking at. I bought a saw filer but didn't get some of the parts. Still looking for them, not real hard though, no time.
I have seen people who made jigs for doing planer knives on table saws, radial arm saws, grinders, etc. I've seen a set up to do 4" knives using the cross slide on a 6" lathe. It can be done, but how accurate it is I don't know.
