My jointer blades needed sharpening, and trying to figure out a way to do this on the Worksharp3000 I purchased a while ago, I turned to my old friend Google.
After seeing the jointer/planer blade sharpening jig made for the Tormak, I figured that the toolrest on the worksharp could be thefoundation of a similar jig, so this is how it turned out.
I am not sure if this could also work for the worksharp2000, or not. but if it has the same toolrest, it should.
The jig svivels on the toolrest, and along with height adjustment of the toolrest, you are able to set it to the right bevel of the blades.
To my understanding this setup wok best for light honing and sharpening, due to lack of large adjustments in depyh after the jig is set up.
So if you have nicks in your blades, you might have to do a couple of readjustments as you are going through courser grits.
This I am not sure of, since I just built this and has no nicks in my knifes that I have to get rid of…..yet.
The grinding/honing is achieved by putting light pressure on the “sled” as you move it back and forth.
The burr on the back is honed away freehand as seen in the demonstration in the video of the build in the link below.
