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 patented 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.

Great tool to have...

As others have already said, the gleaming sharpness is truly amazing. It took 30 minutes to turn an old sawzall blade into a scary sharp marking knife. Thank you for making a tool that lets me make my own tools...

From a Sharpening Skeptic... it works and works great!

I avoided the WS3000 for years because I'm one of those purists... oil/water stones...diamond lapping plates... yadda yadda. Can't remember what convinced me to try it but I finally did... now I rarely break out the manual stuff. One caveat- if you really want hand-honed performance you need to buy all the grits plus the honing (3000/6000) abrasives.. plus the leather stropping wheel. If you go all the way "to the end" you'll have scary-sharp edges on your chisels and plane irons in just a few minutes. I recently took a handful of old Stanley #60 chisels, a Bailey #4 plane (2" iron) and an old Stanley bullnose plane - flattend every back and squared and re-ground every edge (starting with the 80 grit to the00 grit) - then created a 5 degree micro-bevel on all of them, and finally stropped them on the leather wheel.... in about 20 minutes for ALL of the tools. They are all now sharp enough to shave with and I'm sure the best any of them have ever been. Hard to believe such a simple thing works so well. My only beef... the abrasive disks wear out pretty quickly because the tool only contacts one point - and they aren't cheap. But then neither is my shop time. I bought several extra disks and have them all loaded both sides (except the leather stropping wheel) so it's very quick to move through the grits. Then I leave it loaded with the 3600/6000 for quick touch-ups while I'm working. It's way more convenient than anything that requires oil or water. NO MORE DULL TOOLS LOL ! It's so nice to work with razor-sharp tools at all times.

Don't need Gillette

I used this tool at Rockler Woodworking trying to resurrect a 1920 vintage planer. One of the perks of working there. I absolutely fell in love with the ease of operation and more importantly the results. Had the blade shaving hairs in minutes. Came back to work the next day and left with one, as well as the wide attachment and accessory kits. I've spent the last 5 hours rejuvenating all of my cutting tools and a 6 pack of chisels used by a special needs fella that had them in pretty rough shape. To be honest I worked on improving my skills getting his units in shape, but the WS3000 made short work of all of the nicks and dings. You can't go wrong using this tool if you work with wood. It's great!
