Simplified angle setting and effective squaring put this system ahead of the others.

There’s no better feeling in woodworking than making a cut with a razor-sharp tool. Be it an end-grain paring cut with a chisel or a whisper-thin shaving coming off a smoothing plane, there’s nothing as satisfying as the sound of the cut and the feel of the finished surface. Part of what makes that experience so satisfying is the not-always-pleasant memory of the time and effort that went into getting the edge ready for the cut. Woodpeckers newest OneTIME Tool®, the Sharpening System, makes the sharpening process easier, more accurate and quicker than freehand sharpening and has features you won’t find in any competitor.

The first difference you’ll notice between Woodpeckers Sharpening Guide and the others is that our design uses two rollers, instead of one. From the first day of geometry class we all remember that three points constitute a plane, and that’s exactly why we built in two rollers. Combine the two rollers with the bevel of your tool and you’ve defined a flat plane. Precision-machined shoulders in the jaws hold your tool perpendicular to the axles and parallel to the wheel surfaces. This design virtually ensures a square edge on your tool if your sharpening stone is flat.

However, a two-wheel design can be a problem. With two wheels on the outside of the guide, wide tools like plane irons can force the wheels off the edge of the bench stone. We solved that by providing two wheel positions. Mount the wheels inside for plane irons and chisels over 1-1/8" or move them outside for blades from 1/8" to 1-1/8". In both positions the wheels deliver stable support.

To make those wheel changes simple, we eliminated any clutter from the design. Just spin the clamping screw out, slide the slave jaw off the guide posts and you have wide open access to the wheel mounting screws. While you’re putting it back together, you’ll notice the deep, square cut Acme thread. It spins down fast and grips the tool tight. All steel components are stainless, the aluminum jaws are anodized and the wheels are bronze…you can (and should) dunk it in water without worrying about corrosion.

The angle sharpened on your tool is determined by how much tool is projecting from the front of the Sharpening Guide. You’ll find the correct protrusions for standard sharpening angles in the Owner’s Manual. But, if you sharpen a wide variety of tools at lots of different angles, you’ll want the Sharpening Angle Fixture. This handy set-up tool gives you a precise reference for primary bevel angles from 15° to 45° in 5° increments and a 2° micro-bevel offset for every one of those primary bevels. Each angle has a positive pin registration, making repeat sharpening quick and easy.

As you’re getting ready to set up your first tool, you’ll notice that the Sharpening Guide is perfectly symmetrical…there’s no front or back or left or right. Most right-handers will want the clamping knob on the right when clamping the tool in. Lefties will normally want it on the other side. No matter what’s comfortable to you, it works. Just place the Sharpening Guide upside down and against the guide stop on the Angle Fixture. Place your tool in the jaws and against the stop and lock it. That’s it…you’re dialed in for sharpening on your bench stones. Since you’re guiding from the stone surface you never have to worry about the angle changing if your stones aren’t all the same thickness.

If you’re not sure of the angle on your tool to begin with, or you want to check it after sharpening, the Sharpening Guide comes with a Sharpening Angle Gauge. All the primary angles found on the Angle Fixture are included, along with a handy chart which suggests the correct angles for different hand tool operations.

Put the three components together and you have the ultimate companion for your hand tools and bench stones. The Woodpeckers Sharpening System comes complete with the Sharpening Guide, Sharpening Gauge and Sharpening Angle Fixture, all packed in a carrying case with a custom-cut foam liner. If you prefer to build your own angle fixture, you can get the Woodpeckers Sharpening Guide without the Sharpening Angle Fixture. It still comes with the Sharpening Gauge and a smaller custom case.

All Woodpecker tools are machined in their shop just outside Cleveland, Ohio.
