Topic tags/keywords: worksharp sharpening tool plane blade chisel jig

I was wondering if ayone had tried it and had an opinion as to how well it works and if you believe it is worth the 85 or so dollars. Thanks in advance.

I have not tried it yet or as a matter of fact bought it. I just got my WS3000 for Christmas and I love it. I did add the leather hone and getting fantastic results on my chisels and turning tools. I would like to know the same thing you do,” Is it worth the $85 or so?”

I managed to pick up one on eBay for about $40 + shipping but haven’t had a chance to try it yet. I love the WS3000 with a leather wheel which I picked up for $175 with FREE shipping. I have never gotten my chisels and plane irons so sharp by hand before.

Thanks. Perhaps I will swing by Rockler on my way home Friday and see if they have the wide blade attachment. Been looking for a good wide blade solution, but so far I have not been willing to get a sharpener in addition to my worksharp.

Keep posting more information you Lumberjocks? I have the 3000 but am still deciding whether to let go of the bucks for the wide blade attachment.

I picked one up earlier today. Hopefully, I will have time to try it out this weekend. Rockler had it for $69.99 and I was able to use a $15 off coupon. So less expensive than I had anticipated.

I got one and find its better than the chisel slots on the front of the machine.

My planes are so sharp they glide through the wood.

I must get the leather wheel attachment.

I just sold my Tormek. Good luck on your worksharp tools.
