Topic tags/keywords: question sharpening worksharp

This is more like closing the barn door after the horse has gotten out (yes, I’ve already ordered one as busybee has it on sale right now for $115.00 (within Canada), but was wondering from those that have had the WS2000 for a while now as to what your opinions were of it. Good/Bad/indifferent?

Anything quirky to watch for when sharpening your plane irons/chisels?

I see that the abrasives are custom, but has anyone adapted their own to it?

Sorry to say, return it and get the WS3000. A much better tool at a much better value. Also, very easy to get their WC3000 sand paper and such from a local retailer. My Ohio Woodcraft has all the stuff off the shelf. I don’t think I’ve even seen the 2000 except for a traveling show or something. I really like mine. Way too easy to use.

(Just watch out for the build up of shavings on the underside. I’ve seen a spark underneath cause a quick flash fire. No damage to me or the machine. Just opened my eyes to the necessity of cleaning it out once-in-a-while.)

Ditto on the WS3000….I got lucky back when Sears screwed up and listed AND sold it for 17.95. Honestly I do not use it much but it was only $18….I’ll pay that to watch a cow piss on a flat rock.
