My nearly complete WS3000 sharpening station using the Stumpy Nubs plans.

Very easy to assemble.

I still need to shim/level the WS3000 in reference to the top platform and attach the platform.

The drawer if very handy for storing rubbing compounds. The slots on the right are good not just for the MDF or glass discs but also for storing sandpaper for use on the discs.

Makes me feel good to see someone posting one of my designs, and especially when it’s so well executed!

looks like a great addition to the “DYW”!!!

I’ll be happy to send you ALL of my chisels, plane irons and the like, so that you can get plenty of practice, while putting the WS3000 thru it’s paces. There’s no need to thank me. I’m just trying to help out!!!

For the fellas asking for feedback on the WS3000, there are a few LumberJocks who've reviewed it already. Seems to average around 4 out of 5.

Very nice set up. I just bought one of the WS3000 units so this is very timely. Looks like I won’t have to come up with a stand for it from scratch. Now where did I put my scaled ruler?

Looking good Rob – I picked one up myself – just gotta stay motivated to get everything sharp! They do work well though…...enjoy…...

For those that haven’t seen it, here’s Stumpy showing his modifications for this machine. In all the reviews I’ve read, the chief complaint is not the machine itself, it’s the ancillary cost of buying the varying grits of sandpaper. Stumpy’s idea of using MDF and buffing compound circumvents all that.

Stumpy’s plans were very easy to follow!

I’ve been using my WS3000 for several months now as those on Sutmpy’s thread should already know. Recently I even sharpened a friend of mines plan iron for his recently purchased, practically mint (no more rust on it than if any woodworker might accrue if it went unused and unwaxed/oiled or say 6 months in a slightly humid workshop) condition Stanley Bailey #4 Type 18 (1946-47) (naaww I’m not jealous….much). He asked what he owed me and I said nothing as it really only took about 20 minutes from flattening and polishing the back to sharpen and honing the bevel. It has even been very easy to use on my lathe gauges sharpening them free hand. I would agree the biggest draw back is the price of accessories. Stumpy’s plan though allows you to use a sharpening jig by using the top platform.
