Not to kick over another hornets nest but I was at my local Westlake Ace Hardware store and saw that they had the Work Sharp 2000 for $59.00 pick it up and walk out the door. I guess I should put pay for it before you walk out the door but….

Not as good a deal as the HD mess but no Muss no fuss, I am also not sure if all stores have them but the manager and I are friendly and he said that price was chain wide.

For $59, I’d probably buy it on the spot. I’ve tinkered with one a little bit & to be honest, the jury’s still out with me. I think it would be fine to prep before stones, paper, etc. but I really can’t say. For $59 though and such a small footprint, I’d use it to quickly dress a chisel or dedicate it to carving tools. I might go check my Ace.

Maybe it is only Westlake not Ace in general.

If it wasn’t January, (I work on commission and Dec is a four week vacation for me) I would pick them both up and hit eBay or run LJ buddy deals, but the wife would not understand my raiding next weeks food budget.
