This is more like closing the barn door after the horse has gotten out (yes, I've already ordered one as busybee has it on sale right now for $115.00 (within Canada), but was wondering from those that have had the WS2000 for a while now as to what your opinions were of it. Good/Bad/indifferent?

Anything quirky to watch for when sharpening your plane irons/chisels?

I see that the abrasives are custom, but has anyone adapted their own to it?

Sorry to say, return it and get the WS3000. A much better tool at a much better value. Also, very easy to get their WC3000 sand paper and such from a local retailer. My Ohio Woodcraft has all the stuff off the shelf. I don't think I've even seen the 2000 except for a traveling show or something. I really like mine. Way too easy to use.

(Just watch out for the build up of shavings on the underside. I've seen a spark underneath cause a quick flash fire. No damage to me or the machine. Just opened my eyes to the necessity of cleaning it out once-in-a-while.)

Ditto on the WS3000….I got lucky back when Sears screwed up and listed AND sold it for 17.95. Honestly I do not use it much but it was only $18….I'll pay that to watch a cow piss on a flat rock.
