Model #: WS3000

Availability: In stock


The WS-3000 is a bench mounted sharpening system for discerning woodworkers and dedicated hobbyists who want sharp, precision wood-cutting tools quickly and easily - without spending a lot time or money setting up countless jigs, the mess of liquid cooling, or the learning curve required to master antiquated sharpening techniques.

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 sharpening tool by Dale
I used to hand sharpen my tools, it was very time consuming. Lots of times I would use dull tools because I wouldn’t take the time sharpen them. Now I just hit the tools on the workshop for a min or so and they are always sharp and ready to go.

Excellent product and good price by Neil
For years my chisels have been getting duller and piling up. I tried sharpening by hand on a stone, which took forever and still had mediocre results. I looked into power sharpeners for chisels that use water and a rotating wheel. The cost for those was so high I just couldn't justify it. I came across the WS-3000 while searching the internet. At first I wondered if this thing could really work. After reading more and more positive reviews I purchased one and have been very pleased with it. The design is thoughtful and functional - easy to adjust sharpening angles, having glass discs that you can put different grits on either side, having two glass discs to allow a total of four different grits. The knob to remove or flip the grinding discs is easy to work with and allows you to quickly change the disc. Overall the sharpener is sturdy enough that it sits solidly on the workbench while you use it. I'm also pleased to see these are made in America. This genuinely seems like a company that cares about producing quality products.
