They need to rework the way it sits on WorkSharp 3000

They need to rework the way it sits on WorkSharp 3000

1582 days ago by Eric_S | 7 comments »

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...

I received tonight my new wet sharpener. I have been working with it for about one hour and it is working extremely well for me. I sharpened chisels, and planes blades and kitchen knives.I read on another forum that all the Tormek accessories mount right on this sharpener.

A bit on the pricey side, but extremely well made, and solves a huge problem.

A few months ago, I added Norton white oxide wheels to my 8” grinder that I use for sharpening only to be rewarded with a grinder that tried dancing across the shop… The pitiful bushings that Norton includes with their grinder wheels, well… Norton should be ashamed of themselves for including them. These things are a waste of money for Norton to include, and a waste of shipping space. SHAME ON YOUR NORTON!!!! These things have TONS of slop in them, and allow the wheel to ...

Great Honing Guide

Great Honing Guide

1327 days ago by cut3times | 3 comments »

This is from the hand written notes of Richard: The blade is clamped onto and makes contact with the underside of the two stainless steel location rods, these being the primary location datum. How far the cutting edge projects determines the honing angle. For example clamp up at 5/8” (16mm) and the blade will make an angle of 25 degrees to the sharpening surface. Measurement is taken from the side of the stainless steel rod to the cutting edge. A strip of wood with an accurate shoulder cou...

Honing Guide

Honing Guide

1218 days ago by dbray45 | 10 comments »

Bought this and was very surprised. My other honing guide clamps on the sides and edges for the larger blades and has a triangle to hold the smaller chisels and blades. This honing guide clamps on the flat side of the blade and holds it. The guide I give 5 stars. The guide comes with a piece of stick on rubber which I put on the anvil of the guide so that the blade does not move around. The anvil, as I call it, has scribed lines to show if your blade is square to the guide, the rubber ...

Diamond hones sharpen your router bits and chisels

Diamond hones sharpen your router bits and chisels

I really like these little diamond hones for sharpening carbide router bits. Just a few strokes on the back, flat edge of your bits will restore a sharp edge. Comes with three grits. This can save you money and avoid throwing away dull bits, or worse yet ruining expensive lumber.Worth a try.

Chicago Electric Circular Saw Blade Sharpener

Chicago Electric Circular Saw Blade Sharpener

799 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 28 comments »

Addendum after 72 days: My old dewalt blade seen on the bench in the video below is what I sharpened next. I sharpened up pretty nicely. In fact I’m leaving it in the saw for a bed build and I’ve been working with Walnut, maple, and jatoba for this. So far the blade that I sharpened has been working really well. So well in fact that I think I’ll spruce up this sharpener with new knobs, and a few washers to help align things. I’m upping my rating a star. I’d se...

Glad I finally got this

Glad I finally got this

994 days ago by danielt | 13 comments »

I bought a cabinet scraper a few years ago and have really enjoyed using it. I was able to make small shavings with it right out of the box, but of course it dulled after a while. I looked at various tutorials online to learn how to sharpen it and tried to use the same techniques. I didn’t have a burnisher so I tried a variety of stand-ins: screw driver, drill bit, router bit. I was able to sharpen my scraper enough to still use it, but I could never get a good burr on it. I could on...

WORKSHARP WS3000 Great sharpner - I'm in love

WORKSHARP WS3000 Great sharpner - I'm in love

947 days ago by woodmaker | 32 comments »

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...

Spyderco Bench Stone

Spyderco Bench Stone

903 days ago by Phil53 | 5 comments »

I can’t say enough good about these stones. I have a medium and a fine. The fine I have had for over a year and I use it on a regular basis and it still shows no ware. With the fine I can take my tools edge to a mirror finish. The thing I like about using ceramics is that it is clean. You do not have to use water or oil on these stones. For clean up I use a rubber pencil eraser just like we used in school. And if it gets to bad I use a little water, Comet and a green scouring pad. I hav...
