Sharp Blades Mean Better Results
Sharp tools mean you can cut through tougher materials and create more precise details. They reduce the amount of strain work puts on your body and make you much less likely to damage your work surface or hurt yourself. But stopping to sharpen tools interrupts the flow of work, and with some systems it's quite difficult. With the Work Sharp WS2000 Tool Sharpener and grinder, you can sharpen and grind blades quickly, consistently, and easily without making a mess or delaying a project.

Quick, Consistent Sharpening
Precision tools like small chisels are extra tricky to sharpen freehand on large, rough wheels. That's why the chisel sharpening port on the WS2000 is so innovative. This port, which handles blades up to one and 5/8-inches, makes it incredibly easy to sharpen the bevel on small tools from underneath the wheel.

A hold-down bar ensures that you get a strong, consistent bevel edge with a perfect 25-degree angle. This means you avoid lengthy set-up times and the frustration of setting a jig before each sharpening.

An adjustable alignment fence in the port keeps your tool square during sharpening, and when you pull the tool back out of the port, a diamond abrasive automatically removes the burr on the back of the tool for a clean finish and a sharp edge.

Convenient Sharpening Options
For working with bigger tools, the Work Sharp WS2000 features a conveniently placed tool rest that makes it easy to hold larger blades in place as you sharpen and grind them freehand on the top of the wheel.

The horizontal grinding wheel of the WS2000 provides a larger grinding area and better control than a traditional vertical grinding wheel. And you don't have to worry about tools kicking back because you are grinding on a surface that's moving away from you.

When it comes time to sharpen contoured tools, you can slip an innovative slotted Edge-Vision wheel onto the WS2000. This lets you look through the wheel to see the edge of the tool you are sharpening, taking the guesswork out of maintaining lathe tools and other curved or v-shaped blades. Plus, the Edge-Vision wheel is made of a durable high-impact thermoplastic blend that won't change shape or wear down over time.

Safe, Mess-Free Operation
This unique sharpener runs at about 1/4 the speed of a traditional bench grinder, so your work surface doesn't heat up as much. Combined with an air-cooled heat sink design, this helps ensure that your tools don't overheat, preserving the sharpness of your edge and ensuring that you don't ruin the temper of steel tools, all without the mess of a traditional, high-end wet sharpening system.

Click to view more features of the WS2000.
This low-speed wheel makes it much safer to use than traditional grinders, so you can get rid of the thick, clunky protective gloves that make precision work nearly impossible. And when coupled with the large work surface of the horizontal wheel, the slower speed gives you greater control, opening up a variety of innovative uses. To make all this possible, Work Sharp uses an induction motor that deliver consistent power and torque, regardless of load.

And if you share a workspace with your family or coworkers, you can be confident that the Work Sharp's safety lock-out will prevent accidental use.

This Work Sharp tool is backed by a full two-year warranty.

What's in the Box
Tool sharpener/grinder, two slotted Edge-Vision wheels, an instructional DVD, and seven abrasives: three solid abrasives and four slotted abrasives, all either P80 or P220.

I was debating on getting this or the WS3000. I decided(or rather, my budget decided) to try the smaller model. I was not disappointed. I'm sure the WS3000 has some more advanced features I could use, but the WS2000 works just fine for my small shop. The edge vision wheel makes it easy to put a sharp edge on my lathe turning chisels. The chisel port works great, also. The first thing I sharpened was a cheap old chisel I use to scrape glue. After a few minutes it was razor sharp.
If you have the extra money, go ahead and get the WS3000, but if you're on a budget, the WS2000 won't let you down.

I'm as susceptible to good advertising as the next guy and while Pro-Tool Mfg. makes a nice product, they are masters of marketing.

So moving past the hype, here's my take. I've been hand sharpening my chisels, gouges and planes since I started woodworking and the only reason I don't do more work with my hand tools is because I hate using my limited time maintaining the edges necessary to do precise work. Enter the "WorkSharp WS200". The tool is of a simple, straight forward design. The body is constructed of high impact plastic and what appears to be an aluminum alloy of some kind, making it light and I assume pretty rugged although I haven't yet thrown it at anything to find out.

Getting to the point (a little sharpening joke there), the unit is a snap to set up and effectively turned basic sharpening into a speedy, painless process. Much of hand sharpening is in the set up and while the WS unit does NOT do away with the need to fine hone your tools, it virtually eliminates 80% of the set up time allowing you to move through the basic process of sharpening in just a few ( 2 to 3 ) minutes. For many folks this basic process is all that they may ever need in which case this unit becomes all the more attractive and sensible. Even for those individuals like me who NEED "scary" sharp tools it is a useful and valuable asset, saving me quite a bit of time and providing me with an opportunity to use exactly the right tool for every job by eliminating my biggest excuse for doing otherwise, the time involved in sharpening,

So, is this going to make every woodworker into a hand tool aficionado? Probably not, but it will save everyone who buys it a lot of time and effort and give you good value in that respect. It will also provide a pretty nice edge for your tools.

The tool does exactly what it claims to do and does it well. I ruined the edge on a three quarter inch Marple chisel last year and never bothered to dress it up due to the time required and my dislike for honing blades. With this tool I had a new, sharp edge on the chisel in just a few minutes. I have also sharpened knives and axes with it with good results.

I do have a couple of small problems with it, though. I found that chisels narrower then one half inch did not grind straight across (it looked as if the chisel was slightly cocked in the sharpener) so from now on I will only sharpen chisles one half inches and wider. This isn't really a problem, though. Narrower chisels are easier to sharpen by hand and the WS2000 can still be used to achieve a proper angle on the chisel which can then be finished by hand. My other problem is with the finish. The 220 grit discs leave a fairly rough face on the chisel when compared with a stone. Not a big problem but having gotten used to what a wet stone can do it looks unsightly and purists will complain that a rough finish causes too much drag. The faces can, of course, be touch up by hand, but I plan on getting some very fine grit discs and see if a smoother face can be obtained.

I have some very fine carving tools which, while I have not tried sharpening them on the WS2000 yet, I will problably continue to sharpen by hand. While the machine runs very smoothly it fills a little overwhelming for the small stuff. Maybe when I ruin one of my small tools I'll try it out.

Overall a very good tool and I would recommend it to anyone who, like myself, both hates to hone blades and isn't very good at it. Just be aware that it won't give wet stone-like results and seems to be more suited for relatively larger tools.

The device is rather convenient for sharpening the chisel-like tools. However, if you try to sharpen a mere knife, you'll discover that it is almost impossible. To be precise, one side is sharpened fine, but sharpening another side is a challenge.

Also, I failed to find the required 150 mm abrasive disks in hardware stores in my area (Mass.) The 6" disks I found don't have a central hole (not a big deal, of course) and are 2 mm wider. This is OK for the top side, however, to be used on the bottom side, the edge must be trimmed.

Summing up, to sharpen chisels and likes, the tool is fine. But it cannot substitute a classical grinder if you don't have one. Also, you are stuck with proprietor abrasive disks, especially for slotted ones.

I struggled hand sharping my chisels and plane irons. No more! I took a 40 year+ Stanley chisel from a dull and chipped piece of junk to a chisel the will shave the hair on my arm in less than three minutes. I was about to buy a good set of chisels, but choose the buy the Work Sharp. I figure it cost about $40.00 more. I gained a tool that will keep all my cheap chisels and plane irons razor sharp. I did buy an extra disc and put 400 and 800 wet/dry sand paper on it to hone the final edge and keep my tools razor sharp after each use. It works great.
