Work Sharp WS3000 Wood Tool Sharpener With FREE Leather Hone
Work Sharp™ WS3000 Tool Sharpener:

Air-cooled, dry sharpening system eliminates the mess of a wet system and delivers higher material removal rates without affecting the steel temper. Unique design allows for fast and easy reshaping of new or damaged chisels and planes (up to 2" wide), and fast honing of a micro bevel. Bevel angles are adjustable and are set in the sharpening port (not in a fixture or jig) so switching between angles is simple and fast. With maintenance-free tempered glass grinding wheel. No calibration is required for changing wheel diameter, and there's no need to change between fixtures, grade wheels, or move from machine to hand sharpening to achieve a razor-sharp edge. Coarse grinding for rapid shaping and micro-fine honing is in one port!


Features:

  • The system's repeatability allows you to sharpen multiple tools at any combination of angles and abrasive type without extra setup.
  • Routed airflow and heat sink system keeps tools cool without the mess of a wet system.
  • Sharpening port enables you to select desired bevel angle and sharpen precise, repeatable angles of 20°, 25°, 30° and 35° for chisels and plane irons up to 2" wide.
  • Powerful 1/5 HP motor with 580 RPM wheel speed.
  • Sharpening port lapping surface features "plunge-pull" sharpening technique.
  • Sharpening port abrasive increases burr removal and speeds sharpening.
  • Adjustable top tool rest makes freehand sharpening easier and more precise.
  • T-slot mounting system lets you mount the top tool rest and other accessories.
  • 150mm tempered glass grinding wheel provides a maintenance-free, always flat and true grinding surface on which to adhere PSA abrasives.
  • Skew cam adjustment controls bevel-edge for squareness.
  • With bench mounting tabs for easy installation to benchtop.
  • Industrial grade power connection switch with safety lockout.
  • Grounded 6-foot power cord.
  • Cast-aluminum top; sheet metal housing; impact and vibration-resistant tool-grade plastic base.

Razor sharp
Okey, Just received the WS3000. Went on YouTube and watch and learn about the sharpener. It didn't seem too hard, in fact it was really easy. As soon I got the package, took it to the shop, set it up and ran it. Sharpen 12 chisels in about an hour and they are razor sharp. So much for doing it manually and get rid of the stones. Now I have to make sure I don't cut myself.

The WS3000 took considerable time to correct many years of inaccurate free hand sharpening of my chisels and planer knives but it has been worth it. Resharpening and honing once the edge was corrected is quick and accurate. A source for replacement sanding disks with a 1/2" Dia center hole has been difficult to find.

Why did you choose this?
Rockler Store
Have plenty of dull chisels. Good reviews, thought I'd try it. Takes a lot of time to manually sharpen it.

Can you properly sharpen wood carving
Knives with this system?
Christopher L on Jul 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello Christopher, Hand carving knives are outside of the design intent of this tool. Unfortunately, we do not offer a sharpening solution for carving knives due to their smaller more delicate edges. Hand sharpening remains the best solution for these types of blades.
Is there a way (jig) to sharpen drill bits with this tool?
Woody on Jul 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Woody,
The WS3000 does not have a jig to sharpen drill bits successfully. You would need a drill bit sharpener. We have the Drill Doctor line to sharpen your bits. For more information please contact our Customer Service at 1-800-418-1439.
Is there a way to sharpen lawn mower blades with this?
Dan M on Jul 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello Dan, No. The WS3000 is a wood tool sharpener and is not designed to sharpen lawnmower blades. Try our Original WSKTS or the WSKTS-Ken Onion Edition Sharpener, also sold through Rockler.
There is no mention of a manual. Does it have a manual?
RALPH T on Aug 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: There isn't a maintenance manual, but there is a user's manual that is pretty readable. I haven't had any problem using the manual or the machine. Still trying to get used to how fast the various grits work but like most things I suspect that is just a matter of practice. I'm pleased with the entire setup.
How many amps does it draw?
Ken B on Jul 18, 2018
