It also allows you to sharpen a perfect 5° micro-bevel for even faster re-honing. The WS3000 also sharpens carving tools, lathe tools, scrapers, putty knives and more! Work Sharp uses a powerful 1/5 hp motor and produces a high torque max wheel speed of 580 RPM. Work Sharp offers an active air cooled sharpening port with routed air flow and heat sink design to quickly and easily sharpen you chisels and flat blades without overheating or damaging the steel. This innovative, patent pending chisel sharpening port also uses a ceramic oxide lapping abrasive to remove the burr while you sharpen, making sharpening even faster! The WS3000 comes with 2 tempered 2 sided glass wheels (150mm) and one slotted Edge-Vision wheel and uses both solid and slotted adhesive backed abrasives so you can quickly and easily change between coarse and fine grits.
