Folks have been asking about the new WorkSharp sharpening
As a Sharpening Phreak (ok so maybe it's just "Phreak") I've tried many
to sharpen woodworking tools and own quite an assortment of jigs and
Scary Sharp (tm), grinders etc. and have bench chisels, plane irons,
chisels and gouges as well as turning chisels and gouges to keep sharp.
the turning chisels and gouges that require frequent sharpening because
edges cut more wood in a minute or two than most other edged tools see
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
- 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 -
on flat bevel tools)
Anyway - here's the url to my User Review of the WorkSharp WS3000
as always, comments, suggestions, constructive criticism are welcomed
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...
