Safety Rules

  • Risk of projectiles. Wear safety glasses. Keep a firm grip on tool while sharpening.
  • Risk of burns. Friction causes heat - don't touch tool edges that have just come off the sharpener.
  • Risk of respiratory damage. Wear dust mask.
  • Risk of fire. Hot sparks can ignite flammable materials. Keep work area clean, especially of sawdust piles.

Operational Notes

  • Please review sharpening Worksharp shapening technique videos before using this sharpener.
  • Keep the tool pointed toward the center of the disc. The outside of the disc moves faster than the inside, so the tool will sharpen at different rates if it spans along the radius.
  • Keep sandpaper clean. Frequently clean with an abrasive cleaning stick.
