I got this used a couple of days ago. the price was right and I had wanted something that I could speed sharpening up, and get a hollow grind for freehand honing/touchups. before getting it, I tried to gather as much information about this, as I haven’t seen too many reviews on the unit except for KnotScott’s review here, and some other reviews on Amazon (which I always take with a grain of salt). it seemed like all the reviews were raving about how good the machine is, which m...

Review of the WorkSharp WS3000

Review of the WorkSharp WS3000

06-19-2008 05:03 AM 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 ...

I have been looking for a sharpening product that I could use between my super fine diamond stone and a leather strop that is different than the Norton 8000 grit water stone I was currently using. I think the water stone is a great product, but I hate the maintenance and mess of a water stone. When I took a class at the Homestead Heritage School of Woodworking, we learned about sharpening and the system that was used was diamond stones (up through super fine) and then the Translucent Arka...

Leaves a rough finish

http://www.harborfreight.com/120-volt-circular-saw-blade-sharpener-96687.html Haven’t seen anybody review this, so I thought I’d give it a go. I posted it on my blog a while back, but nobody reads that. ;-) I’d been looking at this sharpener for years at HF. Sending my carbide blades out can get expensive so I needed a way to do the work myself. You can only block the teeth with a diamond card so many times… I picked it up on sale for $59. When I got it and...

THE way to achieve a mirror-like polish everytime

THE way to achieve a mirror-like polish everytime

08-19-2011 04:43 AM by jayman7 | 9 comments »

I owned a series of King waterstones previously, and while they worked well, they still didn’t perform as I would’ve liked. And that’s in addition to making sure they get a good soaking well before your sharpening session, which makes a huge wet mess. I’ve seen the Wood Whisperer use these Shapton stones many times before, but I have always hesitated due to the high price tag. It was one of those times where I said “Oh what the heck,” and I bought a se...

Perfect stone for grinding and flattening tools and other stones.

Perfect stone for grinding and flattening tools and other stones.

02-07-2012 09:03 PM by Dan | 13 comments »

For the past couple years I have been sharpening my tools using the Scary Sharp method. To grind a new bevel on a plane iron or chisel I would use a grit anywhere from 80-120 grit sheets. The paper cuts fast but it also wears fast. Another problem with the paper is it clogged up quickly. With all the irons that I sharpen I was just going through a ton of paper so I started looking into coarse diamond stones. DMT sell two different types of bench stones. They have the DiaSharp which are a s...

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

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

08-29-2013 01:35 AM 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 ...

Sharpen Your Claws On This Tiger

Sharpen Your Claws On This Tiger

03-21-2009 06:48 PM by knotscott | 8 comments »

Once I acquired some functional chisels, and a fleet of hand planes, I needed an easy and effective method to keep a good edge on all of them. I initially bought a little jig that held the blades at a set angle and allowed me to work the blade back and forth across an abrasive surface…it worked ok but took a fair amount of time. I also bought a small Delta Utility Sharpener that didn’t work quite as well, but was a little faster. When the Scheppach Tiger 2000 went on sale for n...

Diamond sharpening Kit

Diamond sharpening Kit

02-24-2011 04:35 PM by dbray45 | 6 comments »

This kit came with 4 “stones” – actually 4 steel plates. The extra course is a little smoother than road surface. When I used this to flatten my 8000 grit water stone, I found that my flattening stone has been worn to a point that is no longer flat. When you get these, sharpen a piece of steel or something hard where you are not looking for that pristine mirror finish. I made a blade for a radius plane – thank Mads for this, the blade is now done – and went...
