I walk with one crutch, so that leaves one hand to carry most everything I need. I get frustrated trying to carry a slow-speed grinder, set it up, then switch to a guide with sandpaper on marble, then switch to wet stones, then sweitch to diamond stones, then a leather strop for the final hone.
Right now Rockler has a great deal on the Work Sharp 3000, and I have a space on my bench already picked out as a possible sharpening station for the 3000. The only time I would have to pack out my slow speed grinder is to recondition a plane iron from Ebay or a swap meet, or if I <shudder> dropped my chisel or plane iron.
My question is: Does the Work Sharp 3000 live up to its hype? Does it really give a razor-sharp edge without having to switch from one tool to another?
I know that there are Lumber Jocks who have used this system in their day-to-day woodworking.
Thanks for your input!
