Kelly Mine Preservation Society has a Climax Rock Drill Sharpener, it is different in design than the one at, I think, King Edward and the one in a quarry near Princetown. It is far more squat and has a wider swage block. I am unable to find any reference to this design. If anyone has knowledge of any of these devices elsewhere, I would like to track them down. The sharpener was last worked upon several years ago and was in working condition, now it is time to have another go at it, and further document, what I think may be a unique device.
I am going to photograph this sharpener in detail, given some light and happy to publish later or discuss by private email. Tony
