Worksharp Customer Service Experience - 10 replies
I don’t usually post this kind of stuff, but my experience was so great that I feel like I owe it Darex/Worksharp to talk about it. Back story: My WS3000 was about 2 years old. One day I turned it on to sharpen a chisel and it popped the GFI on the outlet. It kept doing the same thing over and over. I took the machine apart and coul...

I pulled a few things out, now I’m selling the rest. I think the prices are fair, but if I’m way out of line let me know. I’d prefer a local buyer near Lo...

Is any project really "perfect"? - 58 replies
After completing a few projects lately and complaining about their imperfections, my wife said “you do know that you’re the only who sees this stuff, right? Everyone else can’t believe you actually made it!” I’m not sure if that was a compliment or an insult, but her heart was in the right place and she is right: ...

I was going through my Great Aunt’s chicken coop the other day, just curious to see what was in there. It had been about 10 years since I was at her property and I was just killing some time. I noticed a wooden box full of old tools so I started rummaging around to see what was there. As I pulled out this old block plane my Aunt said it...

While scouting a hunting spot on my property, I saw this tree: I’m pretty sure it’s an oak tree. What would this be worth? Should I cut it down and try to sell it? Thanks for the help. Cory
