The Work Sharp WS 3000 is a tool sharpener designed for the woodworker. It can quickly and easily take dull chisels and plane irons and turn them into the precision cutting tools they were meant to be.
Work Sharp WS3000
The Work Sharp WS3000 features a powerful 1/5HP motor that is geared down to provide an ideal wheel speed of 580 RPM. To further keep your tools cool, the WS3000 pulls in air over your tools. Gone are the days of burning your tools on your high speed grinder. The unit itself is solidly built and backed with a full 2-year warranty.
How it works
The Work Sharp WS3000 can be used in a number of ways. The innovative chisel sharpening port allows you to select your sharpening bevel angle. Once your angle is selected, your tool rides on the rest to maintain a consistent bevel angle during sharpening. You can also sharpen your tools on the top of the wheel as you would do, traditionally. On the top of the wheel you can use the integrated tool rest or you can flatten the backs of your tools.
The system comes with two tempered glass wheels and a slotted wheel. The tempered glass wheels provide an absolutely flat surface to apply the PSA (pressure sensitive adhesive) abrasive paper. This flat surface is ideal for coarse, medium, fine and the super fine micro mesh abrasives. The second sharpening option is using the slotted wheel. The slotted wheel allows you to see through the wheel while sharpening and for the first time, allows you to actually see the edge of the tool being sharpened.
The system comes with numerous abrasives, from the coarse P120 for fast metal removal to the P3600 micro mesh. You will have all that you need to turn your tools into fine cutting instruments. The system also includes a crepe stick abrasive cleaner to keep your abrasives from clogging with metal.
