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.

Been using stones to sharpen plane irons and a Jet water sharpener for the chisels. On the recommendation of a professional woodworker who also works at Woodcraft, I bought the WS3000 and the wide blade attachment. Money well spent, easy to use and the results are fantastic. I will be demonstrating & recommending this tool to my woodworking guild. (Posted on 2/22/15)

Razor sharp chisels and NO mess. Review by Fitty

Inherited a dozen chisels and made the mistake of sending them out to be sharpened "professionally" on a recommendation. Just didn't want to deal with the water stone mess and time factor. Chisels were in worse shape coming back than when I sent them out. Bought the WS3000 and WOW. One eighth the time, razor sharp chisels, and NO mess. (Posted on 1/27/15)
