Default Lathe chisel sharpening


I'm a new turner. I have turned 3 pens, 1 with guidance.
I have purchase used tools and my chisels need sharpening.

How good is the tool for sharpening?

The Work Sharp WS3000 Tool Sharpener

Any other suggestions and guidance are appreciated!

I know some folks who do use the work sharp but most prefer a grinder and a jig set-up. The jig set up does not have to cost a lot. There is a number of plans out on the internet about making your own.

I got fed up with using HSS chisels and but a carbide chisel. For the same amount of money you would spend on a sharpening jig, you can get a carbide tool and they do not disappoint!! Just my $.02
even a stopped clock is right twice a day

Old post but I just learned about this from reading it. Doesn't sound or look like a bad thing to have for some pen turning tools and others. I think I'll get this. Here's a review I found. It may just fit my needs.
