November 30, 2009 – Marlborough, MA – Diamond Machining Technology (DMT), a leading manufacturer of diamond sharpening products, today unveiled its Magna-Disc System, an abrasive disc system compatible with Work Sharp machines’ Model’s WS2000 and WS3000. In the past, these machines had to utilize paper discs to sharpen and hone tools. However, by utilizing DMT’s Magna-Discs, sharpening on these machines can be more precise while also saving money on replacement discs. With DMT’s Magna-Disc System, there is no longer a danger of excessive heat or sparks, providing a cooler, safer and cleaner working environment

The Magna-Disc System conducts heat away from the machine eliminating the risk of harming the temper of tools from the serious damage heat can cause. Paper discs can heat tools up to 210° F and even higher, while DMT’s diamond discs do not exceed 90° F. The Magna-Discs are also available in multiple grits (45 micron, 325 grit coarse; 25 micron, 600 grit fine; and 9 micron, 1200 grit extra fine.) and can be changed much faster than traditional paper discs due to the innovative magnetic mounting system.
“Our Magna-Discs can outlast any conventional paper abrasive disc on the market, by a wide margin,” said Mark Brandon, President of Diamond Machining Technology. “It takes more than 50 paper abrasive discs to provide the sharpening power of one DMT Magna-Disc! Our discs also eliminate the hassle of air pockets, peeling and sticking when you want to change grits. No more rips or tears and no more frustration due to the rapid breakdown of paper discs.”
Regardless of the grit, it takes only 15 seconds to change a DMT diamond disc, while paper discs can take up to two minutes. The Magna-Disc system includes a Sharpening Kit and a Honing Kit – which are available for a suggested retail price of $94.99 and $74.99 respectively at Woodcraft Supply on February 1, 2010.
DMT’s Diamond Sharpeners are known for their ease-of-use, durable construction, quality and reputation for providing years of uncompromising service. Unlike other sharpeners, DMT’s products will not break, chip, crack, hollow or groove.

I guess we both hit a home run this month.
I have always wanted a worksharp, but could never justify the cost.
With a deal like yours I would have one sitting on my bench.

Great find.
