WS-3000 Woodworking Tool Sharpener

Cutting Edge Technology for Woodworkers

The WS-3000 is an air-cooled woodworking tool sharpening system that consistently and accurately grinds, sharpens and hones to a perfect 20°, 25°, 30° or 35° bevel angle without cumbersome jigs. It also allows you to sharpen a perfect 5° micro-bevel for even faster re-honing, or create custom edge profiles using the horizontal, low-speed abrasive wheel.

The WS-3000 sharpens:

  • chisels, plane irons, and Spokeshave blades up to 2" wide
  • carving tools
  • lathe tools
  • scrapers
  • and many other common edge tools

The Work Sharp WS-3000 Woodworking Tool Sharpener uses a high torque 1/5 hp motor and produces a maximum wheel speed of 580 RPM, making the large abrasive area safer, cooler and easier to control than vertical grinding wheels. The WS-3000 utilizes gear reduced wheel speed (while preserving consistent torque output) to sharpen tools without overheating or damaging the temper of the steel. And when sharpening chisels and plane irons, the tool rests on a forced-air heat sink that literally takes the heat away from the tool as it sharpens. This patent-pending heat sink is coated with a replaceable ceramic oxide lapping abrasive that automatically deburrs your edges as you sharpen.

The WS-3000 includes 2 tempered glass wheels (150mm) - giving you 4 abrasive surfaces (2 per wheel) to quickly and easily meet the sharpening task at hand. The WS3000 also comes with the innovative Edge-Vision wheel. Slots in the Edge-Vision wheel allow you to see the cutting edge of the tool you are sharpening, making it easier than ever to sharpen carving tools and lathe tools by eliminating guess work and over-grinding.

Optional accessories are available separately that expand the utility of the WS-3000 to sharpen wide tools, knives edges and more.

Makes quick work of chisels Review by Steve

I bought this to sharpen chisels. I have tried two and both became razor sharp with only a little effort. The videos and the white paper made it very easy to replicate. I was able to get the job done with the 4 grits supplied. However, having an 80 grit would have helped with the process. The extra finer grain papers are nice to produce a mirror finish, but not needed for getting a razor sharp edge. Do watch the videos to avoid problems getting started. (Posted on 12/30/15)

What a easy job in sharpening my lathe tools. Easier and sharper after than my previous tedious multi step tasks. Sharper tools equals easier turning and more frequent sharpening due to the ease of use. Have had a Drill Doctor for years and you all have done it again. Thanks.
USA made, supports a local economy and does the job. (Posted on 11/4/15)
