As a luthier, my chisels have to be sharp. I use to use water stones and they did put an edge on a blade that was sharp beyond belief but even sharpening with a micro bevel, they were painfully slow. I finally decided I really wanted to spend my time building instruments, not sharpening my tools, relaxing zen like process that it could be. I chose the Work Sharp system because it looked sturdy enough, the design of the tool made sense and it looked like actual woodworkers had some input on the design. Oh, and it was reasonably priced. Like any new system, it took a bit to figure out how best to use it but, once I'd gotten past the short learning curve, it totally met all my needs. Before I took my good chisels to it, I tried out a rusty old plane blade that was in an old wood bodied plane that I'd been given as a decorative item. In less than twenty minutes, I took that nanky old blade and turned it into one of the best working plane blades in my shop. I was flat amazed at how well this machine works. When I had a question about the machine and I contacted the company, their advice was quick, dead on accurate, and pleasant from the very start. I couldn't be more pleased. Do your hands a favor and get this machine.

This leather wheel is good for putting the final edge and polish on your tool. It includes a little packet of petroleum jelly that you smear on the wheel the first time you use it, as well as the green compound that you charge the leather disc with.

Note that you can only use this wheel *facing up*---it's not meant to face down, so you can't use the sharpening port. If you have the wide tool accessory that fits on the top, then you will be able to hold your tools that way. Otherwise, if you don't have it (like me), you will have to free-hand it, using the tool rest. This is no problem for back of blades, but for the blade bevel, you have to carefully hold the blade by hand at the correct angle. So far it's worked ok for me, but it would be nice if you could use it with the sharpening port.

Very disappointed in the leather hone disc. Can't use it on the bottom so chisel port can't be used. Product description on Amazon didn't mention that. Found out the hard way. Could've destroyed my ws3000, or worse. Also, It's not even close to level with the top. so you can't use the bevel guide being out of level would take some serious math to figure out how far to project the blade considering the leather disc is almost 1/4 inch proud of the top. Also wobbles terrible from inconsistent leather thickness. The list of disappointment goes on but it's late and I'm tired.

this is just for the leather hone plate not the whole sharpening system. I used the other grits on the glass plate and all worked very well. So with that in mind i bought this leather strop plate expecting the same performance, i was proven it is not flat and thumps and shakes when the face of the chisels are in contact with the compound. I have to hold on for any unexpected movement in fear of over cutting the flatness from the face or rounding over the cutting edges. It does a fast job of polishing and i keep my finger on the top of the blade to feel the heat building up and remove when it is to hot and let it cool down.
With all this described, i know it is from an inconsistent thickness of the leather and i have no way to shave it to an even thickness accurately. I will try some PSA sandpaper on a flat wood paddle and see if that will scrub it flat, if not it is not worth the bother to buy another one.
I have tried the compound on a worn out 1200 grit pad on the plate and it is giving me the good results with a smooth contact and no thumping or wiggles and it does polish out the backs of the chisels; just slower to get results.
I wish they sold just the leather pad so we can replace it and not buy another glass plate. Hint !!

DIY Update, i used a wood slat that is 2.250 wide x 3/8 thk. x 12" long to back up a single 1/4 sheet of 80g sand paper folded over the slat. The closed fold pointed into the rotation so i could control the sand paper. I laid it flat (2.25) on the spinning leather wheel and sanded off the high spots and cleaned off the paper several times with the rubber block that is supplied in the hone wheel kit.

I'm used to doing the sharpening by hand and this is wonderful. This was the perfect addition to the Work Sharp system because it adds that final sharpness to planes that lead to outstanding results.

Because you're free-handing this from the tool rest, beware that you don't gouge the leather. Carefully face the tool's sharp edge AWAY FROM the direction of spin. First time I used it, I slowly lowered the cutting edge perpendicular to the spinning platter (parallel to the rest) and in the blink of an eye I cut a gouge about an inch in from the center. Chalk it up to inexperience and not thinking this through.

Just lucky it didn't rip the plane iron from my hands and fling it across the workshop, nor did it damage the glass plate under the leather.

I think I'll buy the micromesh disks and retire the leather hone.
