I got the Worksharp 3000 for Christmas and I’m really impressed. It comes with 2 glass plates and 120, 400, 1000, and 3600 grit sandpaper, plus 1 slotted wheel with matching sandpaper. Chisel and plane blades slide in from underneath, it’s as hard to sharpen as an electric pencil sharpener. You can also sharpen from the top or there’s a free hand way to sharpen from underneath. It’s a fast and easy way to sharpen, you can also sharpen carving tools, I highly recommend it.

I love mine as well… I used Stumpy Nubs’ sharpening stand plans to have a place for everything – it’s brilliant!

I really like mine as well. So easy to use.

I like mine too. I bought a couple of diamond lapidary disks on eBay that work well, last long and not expensive.

I saw a few videos on it and one where diamond lap discs were used,,,pretty neat..So if someone broke into my shop and stole my sharpening box of goodies,,I’d consider buying one,,,or go to sandpaper as I don’t bother retouching carbide goods…

I bought 4 additional glass disks, though if you want you can easily make them out of MDF and save the money. Each of the disks has the same grit on both sides, so there is no flipping disks when I want to use a particular grit. I like the diamond lap disk idea, may try it. I like the slotted disks, but don’t see much value in them considering the price.

So I also love the workshop 3000 and use it all the time. Bought the extra disks from Klingspor, they are a lot cheaper

You can alos buy better cheaper sandpaper made for the worksharp from Klingspor.

I made an improved Stumpy Nubs sharpening system for the worksharp. Details posted in a few days.

I did the same thing. Klingspor (spelling?) has good quality sanding disks for a much better price!

I bought one two years ago. never even opened it. ended up selling it brand new for little over half price. if i were to sharpen chisels, this would be the only way. can’t get any simpler.
