I don’t usually post this kind of stuff, but my experience was so great that I feel like I owe it Darex/Worksharp to talk about it.

Back story: My WS3000 was about 2 years old. One day I turned it on to sharpen a chisel and it popped the GFI on the outlet. It kept doing the same thing over and over. I took the machine apart and couldn’t tell what was going on so I contacted Darex.

During an on-line chat with Harmony, she took some information and gave suggestions on fixing the issue. None of them worked, so she instructed me to cut the power cord and send it in. They would know if it was a Worksharp cord and would go from there. I did as instructed, but a few days later I worried that I might have gotten hacked and someone was just messing with me. About a week later, right as I was freaking out that I had been hacked, a large box shows up at my house with a brand new WS3000. Not refurbished, not just the machine, but a whole new sharpener, wheels, sandpaper, etc.

I’ve been a fan of the Worksharp for a while because it’s easy and quick and doesn’t take up a bunch of space. After this experience, I’ll be a customer for life.

Thanks, Worksharp!

That’s awesome! I’ve been wanting a WS3000 for a while now because I’m getting pretty tired of the sandpaper method, and hearing this makes me feel better about my decision. Now I just need to come up some extra cash.

Have to agree there. I got the WS3000 and there was a problem with it. Talked to Harmony on the phone, and a few days later, a brand new unit arrived. She told me to keep all the accessories from both, and ship the broken one back on their nickel. Great!

Nice of you to post this positive feedback. I too own a WS3000 and have been completely satisfied with its performance and the results I get.

This is really good feedback on an outfit that produces a good products. While I don’t own a Worksharp 3000, I do have one of the knife sharpers and I’m completely satisfied with it. But it’s good to know that should I have an issue that I, too, might expect above average customer service and product support. Thanks for posting your feedback, Cory.

Maybe I should contact them about mine. I do like the worksharp but when I turn mine on I usually need to touch the wheel with my finger to get it moving. Glad to know they have good service.

Did they indicate what might have been wrong? I’m in the market for possibly one of these or something similar. It’s great to know they have good customer service, it’s even better to never need it.
