Worksharp 3000

Finally got myself one of these at Woodcrafters the other day. Invited another contractor/carpenter over late this afternoon and in hour we had three of his chisels and seven of mine scary sharp. Very happy with this tool, as was my friend, who prided himself on his grinder and wet stone method. He was amazed at how out of square his chisels were... It came with an add on leather honing wheel on their special. Mirror finish after using that. Put a nice edge back on my pocket knives as well.

As a craftsman, I have heard other people say “it’s not the tool, it’s the person who uses it”. I call BS. The better the tool, the better the job you will do.

While that may be true, a highly skilled carver would be severely challenged if you gave him a butter knife to carve the turkey... A sharp chisel that cuts the wood precisely is a joy to use versus a dull one that is actually ripping and denting the wood....

Absolutely, but we all know that guy who has the best money can buy and no clue.

Trump is fighting to keep you from seeing something every other major presidential candidate in our lifetime has disclosed & that he promised he'd show you. There is, quite literally, something to see here.
