  • WEN Wet Stone Machine 2900

    I'd rather have the Makita that AskWoodman sells, but in the meantime does anybody know if these Wen sharpeners can put a decent edge on chisels and turning tools?

    It's on Kijiji for $20, right now I basically have no way to sharpen my chisels.

    If you have no way to sharpen chisels, then take a look at scary sharp.

    Get some 1/4" float glass, spray adhesive and some silicon carbide wet/dry sandpaper.

    This will get you razor sharp chisels, any of the powered methods are more about grinding and not about the final honing.

      Princes auto sell a great 3 stage diamond sharpener. It is one of the best hand held sharpeners I have. Other than that I prefer for major dings a borzon grinding wheel on a surface grinder

        .
        I have an older version of the WEN tool ,it's alright for sharpening knives,scissors but the angle support attachment is way too flimsy to leave an accurate constant bevel on a chisel. unless you come up with some modifications to it to beef it up it is a useless tool.try scary sharp method as mentioned above,it's easy,cheap and you get excellent result.
