This is a swing frame I made for my Worksharp 3000. I had seen a video where someone had used a box fan motor and these cheap 6” diamond jewelry disc and kept the tool rest at horizontal to grind with. There is a locating pin in the left side for relocating most used angles. The top rest plate slides forwards and back to keep it close to the blade.

I started this over the weekend and this is the third setup and works very well. I have a Wixey angle gauge coming so I can click it onto the metal disc and get accurate angles in the future. I really think this setup will be my go to for future sharpening.


Thanks for Looking !

Very clever, I take it you are using the vyce grips to lock the required swing angle?

Hey I have spotted a belt driving something homemade to the right,..... is that a bufffing pad? ....I tried to find out myself by having a snoop around in your workshop,... but the door was locked and I could not get in, ...plus the windows were covered.

Yes Robert. The vice grips are temporary till I get the Wixey gauge and then I will use the locating hole on the left and drill thru to locate angles. Come on over and knock on the window and I’ll show you around.

Stumpy would be done and drinking a cold one before I got the first prototype done.

Klaus, when I get thru tweaking it I’ll do a blog post and break the parts down to size for anyone with a Worksharp that might want to replicate it. Getting the pivot point right was the hardest part, all the rest can be changed to suit the function of tools that you will sharpen. The 90 fence comes off and is attached with dowels but I think it could pivot for angle also for compound grinds. Thanks for looking !

Well holy hell Turtle, ain’t that just slicker than eel snot?! I recently picked up a WS 3000 and I’ve been putting off building a stand/cabinet because I wanted to scour the interwebs and see what kind of brilliance others had come up with. Never seen anything like this though! I’ll be following looking anxiously for the blog post!
