Tormek sharpening machine


I ended up buying the WorkSharp 3000.  I could buy it local and it is made in the USA.  I've used it several times and I find it works great.  I have not tried the Veritas so I can not compare the two.  I believe the Veritas is only sold at Lee Valley (mail order).  I was able to sharpen my C&W 2?" plane iron extremely fast and to a "scarry sharp" edge.  A big time saver for me (time is money).

Your father is probably right when he says you only have to buy the good stuff once.  However, we all buy clones (Grizzly, Jet, Powermatic, DeWalt, etc.) of the industrial machines like Yates, Bridgeport, Oliver, etc. and they all work fine and are afforable.

Thanks for your suggestions.
