I know that there have been a few reviews of this sharpening system… but I got one a while back and I just wanted to review it and let all my fellow Aussies that it is available here now.. This is the easiest way to keep your hand tools…. chisels and plane irons … sharp… Also great for turning tools and carving chisels… curved as well as straight.. “Work Sharp” is an innovative grinding & sharpening system for sharpening Chisels, Plane Blades, Scrapers...

Here’s my e-x-t-e-n-d-e-d video review of the WorkSharp WS2000. Here are two (much better) reviews on the WS3000 and the Veritas alternatives:http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/WayneC/blog/1113http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/mot/blog/1149 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 ke...

Review of the WorkSharp WS3000

Review of the WorkSharp WS3000

2261 days ago by WayneC | 39 comments »

Originally posted in my blog. I have been looking for a sharpener for a while and came close to coughing up $250 for the Jet clone of the Tormak when the woodworking show was in town last month. I had also seen the Work Sharp on the web. Dan Like had seen one in action and given it his endorsement. There is a video of it on thier web site if your interested in seeing it in action. Wood Magazine has a review of it as well as a video of it in action. On the worksharp web site there is a ...

Work Sharp

I have owned my Work Sharp for a little over two years. I don’t mean to be critical but I have seen too many reviews that are done by someone who has played with their new tool over the weekend and give it 5 stars. I would like to see more reviews after they have had their tool for a while (30 days or more). When I first got my Work Sharp I was disappointed in it because it is a free hand machine, so it is like sharpening on a stone free hand you have to get a feel for it, you have to get ...

The $100 WS2000 or the $200 WS3000- What's the difference?

The $100 WS2000 or the $200 WS3000- What's the difference?

364 days ago by StumpyNubs | 17 comments »

I love me some sharp tools, and as an increasingly lazy woodworker, I looked high and low for the perfect way to get my dull tools back to work with minimal effort, time and of course, money. I think the Worksharp may just be the perfect fit! Not only is it fast and easy to use, but it offers a tremendous bang for your buck. The only problem is, which model to choose? The WS2000 is about $100, while the WS3000 is twice the price. Is it twice the machine? Can a budget conscious woodworker get ...

They need to rework the way it sits on WorkSharp 3000

They need to rework the way it sits on WorkSharp 3000

So I just got the WS3000 this weekend and had a chance to play around with it. This thing is amazing, I have been rehoning all my chisels and plane irons less than 2” in assembly line fashion (all backs at 120 grit, then bevels, then all backs at 400 grit, then bevels, and so on). This thing is amazing, super easy to use, and very quick compared to the manual Scary Sharp method. Now onto the wide blade attachment that I purchased for my 2 3/8” plane iron at $69.99 The angl...

Piss poor results

Piss poor results

676 days ago by Richard | 34 comments »

Let me start out by saying I wanted to like the WS2000. I read the reviews here and elsewhere and was sold on the idea that it was going to make sharpening of plane irons and chisels easier. Previously I have practiced the “scary sharp” method of sharping on progressively finer grits of sandpaper utilizing an inexpensive honing guide. My biggest frustration with the honing guide was the poor ability to obtain consistent results. I will say this in the WS2000’s favor. I...

Very Sharp, yes. Scary sharp, no, but a nice tool none the less.

I’m as susceptible to good advertising as the next guy and while Pro-Tool Mfg. makes a nice product, they are masters of marketing. So moving past the hype, here’s my take on the WS2000. I’ve hand sharpened my chisels and the few planes I own since I started woodworking and the main reason I hadn’t done more work with my hand tools is because I’ve always hated using my limited time maintaining the edges necessary to do precise work. So when I saw an ad clip fo...

A decent sharpener, but be careful!

A decent sharpener, but be careful!

355 days ago by StumpyNubs | 12 comments »

My Work Sharp has a knife sharpening attachment, but the missus doesn’t always want to go out the the shop to sharpen her kitchen knives. So I thought I’d try out the Work Sharp Knife and Tool Sharpener. Besides, i’m a sucker for anything that comes in one of those fancy canvass tool bags! It’s a self contained, hand held machine that comes out of the drawer and plugs into the wall in seconds faster than you can say “get out the knife sharpener and plug it int...
