WorkSharp WS3000 User's Review

Folks have been asking about the new WorkSharp sharpening machine/system.
As a Sharpening Phreak (ok so maybe it's just "Phreak") I've tried many ways to sharpen woodworking tools and own quite an assortment of jigs and stones, Scary Sharp (tm), grinders etc. and have bench chisels, plane irons, carving chisels and gouges as well as turning chisels and gouges to keep sharp. It's the turning chisels and gouges that require frequent sharpening because their edges cut more wood in a minute or two than most other edged tools see in a month - or year. And turning tool "grinds" make all other edged tools look downright simple to sharpen.
The available sharpening systems most similar to the WorkSharp are - the JoolTool (because of the "sharpen from underneath- see through abrassive" method - the Lap-Sharp (because, while it's a far more precise device, it uses a slow speed rotating plate with abrassive paper on it to work - mainly on flat bevel tools)
Anyway - here's the url to my User Review of the WorkSharp WS3000 package.

Once again, "you're a good man, Charlie Brown" .. might've known you'd be ahead of the pack.
Exactly what I was looking for. Many thanks for the doing, and the effort in doing!

Charlie,
Thanks for the great review!! I really need to get something else to charpen my turning tools, etc and I was looking at the WorkShop the other day wondering if it would do the job and was worth the money.
Helped me make up my mind...
Again thanks!!
