They need to rework the way it sits on WorkSharp 3000

They need to rework the way it sits on WorkSharp 3000

04-01-2010 04:31 PM 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...

Easy sharpening

Easy sharpening

When I first got this sharpener about two years ago I did not like it too much, I didn’t know too much about sharpening and wasn’t getting the results I thought I would, I did some research and understood better what needed to be done to get a sharp edge, I only used the sandpaper that was included in the worksharp which is Norton sandpaper, I was pretty happy about that. They sell a honing kit that includes a 3600 and 6000 grit that I considered buying but since it came with the ...

Veritas camber roller attachement makes putting a camber on a blade a breeze.

Veritas camber roller attachement makes putting a camber on a blade a breeze.

After years of using an ROS to sand and smooth all my projects I finally said enough and started collecting good user planes over the last couple of years. I had played some with a #5 jack plane but had left my #4 smoother unattended other than to derust it. I pulled it out today, took the blade out and got out my Veritas honing guide. I had purchased a camber roller attachment for it last year and hadn’t tried it out yet. I don’t know what took me so long. It made putting a cambe...

An affordable wet sharperner

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.

Piss poor results

Piss poor results

10-21-2012 06:09 AM 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...

A decent sharpener, but be careful!

A decent sharpener, but be careful!

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...

Kreg True flex featherboard.

Kreg True flex featherboard.

12-25-2012 09:06 PM by AJswoodshop | 11 comments »

For Christmas I asked for a featherboard. Before I got the featherboard I was using two pushsticks. One to hold the workpiece against the fence, and the other to push it through the saw. It worked well but it was a little uncomfortable. The Kreg true flex featherboard fixed all of those problems. The fingers on the featherboard push the workpiece tight against the fence, and it can adjust to fit the width of you workpiece. It can fit almost every T-slot, and runner track. It’s great for...

Shop Made Honing Machine

Shop Made Honing Machine

I was communicating in a project from dbhost about this honing machine so I thought I would share it here. I got this motor (1/2 hp 1750rpm) from Metal Mike, a nieghbor, same guy who traded a working drll press for a broken band saw. I took 2 peices of MDF and glued them together, roughed a circle, about 10” diameter, then mounted it on my lathe. I turned it into a perfect circle, lathes are good at that. I then purchased a work arbor from woodcraft, I think $14. Mounted the MDF ci...

The Guide To End All

The Guide To End All

Ever used one of those eclipse style sharpening guides? Usually they’re cheesy imports that require serious fine-tuning and modification to be effective. What if a fine tool company like Starrett or the like were to make a honing guide? Well, that’s basically what you have here. I’ve used a couple different honing guides in my day. The eclipse was a waste. Good luck setting various blades and chisels straight in that one. The Veritas MKII is a very nice guide, but eventually I set...

Cuts Fast, Cool, and without burning a hole in your pocket

I got my VS grinder a while back after getting my lathe to sharpen my HSS bits and for the longest time was plain disappointed by how long and how hard it was to shape and sharpen those bits, and always considered replacing the factory supplied wheels with after market replacements… I should have done that much sooner! There are many alternatives out there, and I ended up going for the blue and white aluminum oxide wheels from CGW (at the moment of this writing sold by wholesale t...
