Sharpening Systems by Work SharpComments (0)
Four sharpening systems by Work Sharp® can tackle all the sharpening your woodshop and home require. At the Woodcraft Vendor Trade Show in Columbus Ohio, we received a first hand demo of the Work Sharp 3000, Woodcraft Item #148124.
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.
