Recent post didn't seem to stick! Anyway, I've been using traditional we
t stones, and they work just fine, but a tad messy. And they have to be fl
attened now and then. I have a pocket diamond stone I use for the pocket k
nife, and misc. I see they also make 2 1/2 X 8 inch "stones" for planes an
d chisels. Has anyone used these diamond stones, and how did it work. All
comments will be appreciated!
I did lots o' research and study and nearly took the plunge into the whole
wet stone business so I could feel like a pro. However, ended up with a Wor
k Sharp machine and now never have a dull chisel. Can do a 30 second quick
touch up with no stones to manage and have also refurbished a badly chipped
chisel with a slow bench grinder then work sharp.
Agree. I got a worksharp last Christmas and sharpened everything in sight.
Maybe not quite as good as the best water stone but you'll use it a lot more
often because it's less hassle. As Sonoma pointed out, you can use the
Worksharp in less time that it takes to get the stones out and place the
chisel in a sharpening jig. Consequently your chisels are, on average,
sharper and in better shape.

They work great. I from time to time I use a DMT set for my sharpening needs, and always use a diamond rod to sharpen my pocket knives which I use as woodworking tools.
When I was turning a lot of wood I used to use the little EZE Lap paddles they sold at Woodcraft. They went from coarse to extra fine, and you could get a shaving edge on a chisel with a little practice.
They are great.
