The Work Sharp 3000 that I ordered from HD was just delivered by UPS. I guess I will have to eat some crow. I nevered thought they would ship and take the lost on the price.

Have not had a chance to use it due in part to the door and walkway is under 4-5 ft snow drifts.

I just got mine yesterday. Really impressed with HD for coming through. As far as the unit, it’s pretty good and makes quick work of sharpening (especially coarse grinding). It’s not that it gets my tools any sharper than I can already do with stones, it’s just faster.

Mark,
Tried my WS3000 this past weekend. Did a good job but I would not spend $250. for one. The price with the HD screw up is about max I would spend. IMHO if I had a lot of tools to sharpen, it is a good fast way to go but if you are not sharping a tools every day or so it will be just a dust catcher in the shop.

Hey, maybe Jim Hamilton should buy one as an upgrade to his DC delima. Ha Ha Ha. :)
