I received the Work Sharp 3000 for Xmas.
I absolutely love this thing. Dry sharpen, no water, no mess.
I sharpened 5 chisels and one plane iron in about an hour (maybe less).
The only reason I didn’t give it a 5th star is because I have one plane iron slightly over 2” and it doesn’t fit the ramp so I can’t sharpen it on the machine. I have to load the iron in a jig and sharpen from the top. The plane iron might be 2 1/8” at the most. I mean come on!
I’ve tried different grits of sandpaper on a floor tile and worked all day to only get a “slightly” sharper edge that made the tool more dangerous than before. If I have to get a cut, I want it from a very sharp object.
I have better things to do than spend hours or days trying to sharpen my tools.
Other than that it’s damned nice and I have NEVER been able to sharpen anything in my life till yesterday.
