I recently picked up a used (but in great condition) Worksharp WS2000 that was advertised on Craigslist. In order to have related supplies, manual, etc. immediately available I decided to create a unit that would keep everything together. With scraps from my shop, I built a small drawer unit. On top, I built a ‘lazy-susan’ platform with 1/2 plywood and screwed the WS2000 to the top at the center point of the platform. The table rotates on a bolt/fender washer/nut combination that secures the table to the base but also allows it to rotate. Because the WS uses both the front and back side of the machine for various tasks, I wanted to be able to just rotate the machine so that the working side would face me. I created a pegged stop utilizing a piece of dowel and ‘slice’ of an old broom handle. I then drilled a corresponding hole through both the table and base at the appropriate locations so that it won’t move when being used. I also put small rubber feet on the unit so that it won’t slide. So far, so good. Now, on to the sharpening.
