One of the biggest pains I have is sharpening tools. I’ve tried glass & sandpaper (surface tension w/ water, or glue, etc) and it works, but seems to be a pain in the butt. Sandpaper gets all curly, glass gets bumped and cracked, sharpening jig doesn’t seem to keep a reliable square. So I’m investigating a solution to quickly and reliably touch up sharpening tools without making a mess. I used granite also, and that seems to work well, but has many of the same problems.
I’d love a solution where the sharpening system is set out and ready to go, because I get totally distracted with my current system and sharpening becomes too much of a project.
So far, the WorkSharp 3000 looks great. My expectation is that it can sharpen chisels and planes very easily. And, it should scoot back behind my miter saw fence line very nicely.
Is it more of a hassle than I’m understanding it to be?
