    Work Sharp 3000 at the depot

    Home Depot has the Work Sharp 3000 for 62.25 online. It says it's back ordered I just ordered one and it took all my information and I got a confirmation.

    Here's the link http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/...6&ddkey=Search

    Ok, Well, I did it too. Just seemed like too good of a deal to pass up. We'll see if they honor it...

    Thanks for the tip!

    Man, what a deal. I am a true lover of the WorkSharp 3000 (not the 2000). With it anyone can learn to sharpen chisels and plane irons well enough to shave with. The whole learning routine will probably take 20 or 30 minutes.

    If a blade is a bit dull, it takes a about 20 to 60 seconds to make it great again.
    If the blade is really dull it will probably take another 50 or 60 seconds.
    If the blade is nicked, you have to remove the nick before the above times apply. A tiny nick is no big deal using the 3000. With a real chip, I would probably use a dry grinder or Wolverine first.

    Don't let this one get away!

    Enjoy,

    Jim

    I ordered the 2000 when the 3000 was out of stock. Saw some jigs you can make to get different angles.

    Now I'm wondering if I should order the 3000. AFAIK I can't cancel the first order and I can't return it to a store. What to do?

    Too late! I just tried to order one and got a "no longer available online" message. Bummer!

    Guess I got mine in under the wire. I did get a backorder notice, but so far so good, seems like they might actually ship someday.
