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...

Sharp cutting tools at last!

Sharp cutting tools at last!

11-23-2008 01:56 AM by Greg Wurst | 8 comments »

Like many, I’ve looked at wet grinders (in particular the Tormek’s) for some time hoping to make sharpening an easier and more productive endeavor. I’ve tried using diamond sharpening stones with limited success. My chisels were sharper, but still not as sharp as I thought they should be. I’d see people cutting these fine shavings and I was essentially working with blunt instruments. The biggest sticking point for me (any most other people) is the high price, esp...

DMT DuoSharp Fine/Extra Fine is just not worth it

DMT DuoSharp Fine/Extra Fine is just not worth it

07-09-2012 08:33 PM by CplSteel | 25 comments »

Edit: I am leaving the original post below, and I will repeat this portion of the post below, where it makes sense with the rest of the comments; but, these “stones” are actually pretty good, but the Grit they give you is a lie. I am sticking with the two stars because I wanted a 600 grit stone, not a 6000 grit stone. Ok, that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but after all the posts and differing opinions I decide to do some tests. The test parameters were basically to flatte...

The Chisel Doctor (Honing Guide)

The Chisel Doctor (Honing Guide)

02-22-2012 12:26 AM by Roger | 13 comments »

While going nuts for a long long time over sharpening chisels, & plane irons, I came across this USA made honing guide from Garrett Wade http://www.garrettwade.com/the-chisel-doctor/p/58A01.01/ It’s a little expensive, but, I don’t think too badly at 45 bux. It is very well made with dual wheels instead of the type that has a single wheel in the middle, 2 brass knurled knobs very nicely counter sunk, and a very nice coating of wrinkle paint. The Chisel Doctor is well worth ...

Tormek 2000

01-27-2008 03:24 AM by MrWoody | 9 comments »

I’ve had this unit for about six months and am very pleased with it.After destroying a wood chisel on a 6” grinder years ago I had been sharpening my tools with Japanese water stones. I was getting unsatisfactory results on my carving and lathe gouges, so decided to find a better (read easier) way. Pros:Easy to set upEasy to repeat anglesFast with excellant resultsNo burned tools Cons:PriceA bit messy (no more so than water stones) Videos can be viewed at Sharp Tools USA ...

Work Sharp

Work Sharp

12-29-2011 04:52 PM by Phil53 | 38 comments »

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 ...

I’ll make this succinct. The Good: [1] Once you set it up a few times, it gets pretty quick and repeatable. I do think the overall “system” is a great concept.[2] I did not have any issues with my irons or chisels sliding around in the guide. It seems reliable in this respect.[3] Veritas customer support has been one of the best customer support experiences I have EVER had – this is really the only reason I have not given this guide 0 stars. The Bad (i.e.,...

Norton Waterstone set IM83  in box

Norton Waterstone set IM83 in box

06-28-2010 04:55 PM by Ollie | 7 comments »

This is just a quick review of the Norton waterstone set in a carrying case.I only purchased this set after a lot of deliberation and bargain hunting. I paid £230 for the set, after first checking the price of all the stones individually, including the flattening stone.It worked out that I was only paying £20 for the box and free DVD that comes with it. I think that having the box is worth it just to keep the stones out of harms way and ready to go. Upon receipt of the kit I first watched ...

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...
