Product Information:

You can monitor stock removal from above with the Work Sharp's "see-through" wheel while a large port provides access from underneath.

The Work Sharp 3000 wood tool sharpener let's you monitor stock removal from above with the "see-through" wheel while a large port provides access from underneath. This works exceptionally well for sharpening large turning tools quickly and efficiently while also providing a means to sharpen and hone carving tools, especially the smaller profiles that require a more delicate touch. This is an air cooled, dry sharpening system that uses maintenance free 150mm tempered glass wheels to which you adhere PSA abrasives. Slotted "see-through" wheel allows for fast and precise sharpening of carving and lathe tools. The precise and repeatable sharpening port enables sharpening of 20, 25, 30, and 35 degree angle chisels and plane irons up to 2" wide. No jigs are needed; just select angle and sharpen. Lapping abrasive in the sharpening port increases burr removal and speeds sharpening. The rigid bevel angle settings and skew cam provide precise positioning of the sharpening port. Bevel and skew geometry are not affected by wheel diameter, chisel size, or complex user setup. Forced air-cooling and the sharpening port heat sink allow for higher material removal rates without affecting the steel temper. It allows for quick reshaping of a new or damaged chisel, and fast honing of a micro bevel. The precise bevel angles are set in the sharpening port, not in a fixture or jig, so switching between angles is simple and fast. No re-calibration is required for changing wheel diameter or tool size. Coarse grind for rapid shaping and then micro-fine hone all in one port. The Work Sharp 3000 comes with a 2 year manufacturer's warranty and the following accessories: 2 tempered float glass wheels, a "see-through" slotted wheel, top tool rest, crepe stick, and PSA abrasive kit. It has a 110V, 1/5 hp motor, 580 rpm (gear reduced), and weighs 16 lbs.

    Comments about Work Sharp 3000 :

    I was introduced to the WorkSharp 3000 by a professional furniture maker who has 40-50 years experience. He told me it would be a purchase I wouldn't regret. Man was he right. Minimal time to set up the sharpener, quick work of the most damaged blades and scary sharp results. I'll be recommending this to every woodworker I know!

    Comments about Work Sharp 3000 :

    I bought this tool primaraily to sharpen corrugated knives for my molding machine. Those knives are sharpened on the flat (not the profile)and doing this by hand on a piece of granite and sandpaper takes a unbelievable amount of time. This tool really speeds the process up. It is fantastic for sharpening chisels and plane irons. Precise, perfectly sharpened edges that are as good as a professional sharpening service.

    This is a great unit to get started with sharpening. My primary use is for sharpening turning tools. With the added tool bar and Tormek jigs my bowl gouges have never been so sharp. Versatile for lots of things. Some limitations - size and some angles can be tough to cut. Overall very happy with this purchase

    I use this to keep my cutting tools sharp. I believe that the sharper the tool is the safer it is to use. Dull tools are an accident waiting to happen.

    Great addition to the shop. The slotted disks are good for finishing and it's easy enough to make your own set up on the glass wheels.

    Comments about Work Sharp 3000 :

    The Worksharp is easy to use and does a great job sharpening chisels. Other tools can be sharpened on it using its tool rest, but it's not nearly as easy without additional jigs and accessories. I really like that it uses standard PSA sanding discs that can be picked up anywhere. If it were more versatile out of the box I would have given it 5 stars.

    Fast sharpening, some issues...

    Comments about Work Sharp 3000 :

    I was very pleased with the WorkSharp 3000 with honing the bevel of a chisel, however I had quite a few issues with flattening the backs of smaller chisels. Even flattening the back of a plane iron, I had inconsistent results unless I started the machine after I placed the plane iron on the wheel and turned the machine off before I removed the plane iron. I have reverted back to using my sharpening stones for plane irons and the backs of the chisels, but am using the WS3000 for the chisel bevel - which works great.
