Topic tags/keywords: jig question shaping work sharp

Has anyone created a jig or know if there is one commercially available for shaping drill bits on the Work Sharp W3000 or the W2000? I am thinking about buying a Drill Doctor however I would rather save a bit and just make/buy a jig for the Work Sharp system. Any feed back would be great.
Thanks

Buy the Drill Doctor. It is purpose designed to sharpen your bits. Really like mine and use it a lot.

I have had mine for about 4-5 years and think it is model 300. As long as you get your bit set correctly in the holder and don’t rush it (overheat bit) it will give a good result. I would like the Model 750X, at some point, since it can sharpen bits up to 3/4” and mine is limited to 1/2”.

Look on Amazon as you can get the 350X (upgraded version of mine) for about $50 or the 500X for about $100.

We also have the Worksharp 3000 and think you would spend a lot of time trying to rig it to accurately sharpen round drill bits.

Good luck!

Drill Doctor would be my first choice as well.

Have your say...
