http://i43.tinypic.com/2yjr61h.jpg I have a worksharp 2000 that I got receintly and I wanted to sharpen my jointer blades on it. I made this jig to hold the blades at the correct angle. I hope this will help someone.

Do you have any more information? A few of us have the WS2000 or 3000s. I’m sure others would like a little more info on construction, materials, dimensions, etc.

Oh . . . how did it work?

Thanks :-)

I have been thinking about; how could I sharpen my jointer blades on my worksharp 3000? I’ll give your idea a try, thanks.

OK, I know I didn’t give any details other than the picture so here goes.
IOK, I know I didn’t give any details other than the picture so here goes.
I used 1/16 ” aluminum. It measures 6” X 2 ½”. The slots are cut 5/8” and 1 3/8” up from one long edge. There are ¼” in from the side and are 1 ¼” long. I made them this long so when you add the hose clamps, (1/2” to ¾” range), you can slide them to the side to get the jig off your rest and don’t need to remove the clamps completely. I cut the slots with a pneumatic cutoff tool.

I’m sure that other materials and dimensions could be used but that is what I had on hand.

It works great at keeping the angle correct as long as you keep pressure against the jig. Just move it back and forth to sharpen. My jointer is a Delta 6” and the blades are kind of short height wise. If you have taller blades you might need to raise the slots since the blades would hit the clamps.
