Here’s my e-x-t-e-n-d-e-d video review of the WorkSharp WS2000.
Thanks to all of you who are bearing with my videos as I learn while I go! I apologize for the length of the video – I just want to sharpen everything in my shop!
Errata: I keep calling it “WorkShop” in the video – I mean “WorkSharp” – I keep saying stropping, although I’m not sure it’s a word and I’m tired of hearing myself saying it. I also keep saying “shavings” when I mean “filings” — again thanks for your patience.
The WS3000 is probably a better product, but I think you get 80% of the WS3000 for 50% of the price by going with the WS2000 – so a lot of bang for the buck, but definitely more suited towards amateurs like me.
I have never set hands on the Veritas Mk II system, but based on its larger disc (allowing flattening the bases of larger planes and more flexibility) and it’s micro-bevel capabilites, it’s probably worth the $89 bump over the WS3000.
I would recomend the WS2000 for hobbyists like myself, but the lack of more pro features keeps me from giving it a full 5 stars.
