I have a number of hand plans that I use on a regular basis and also wood chisels. One of the problems is keeping them sharp and honing them by hand is an art and very time consuming. I just purchase a work sharp 3000 here is a link

I paid 189 and without a doubt this is a very good product for plane irons and chisels. It takes about 2 min to sharpen a bad iron. An I mean one that has gouges in it. I bought a very old trim iron a few months ago and use the work sharp to bring it back like new. I thought I would share if anyone is interested in a new toy for the shop IMHO well worth the money. One other thing is that you can put a micro bevel on your irons in just one or two passes Greg

I bought one of these a year ago and I'm very happy with it. I got an extra glass plate so I have two additional stages of different grit to choose from. It is easy to use, quick to change discs, excellent and consistent results when sharpening wood chisels.
It takes a light hand and some practice to get a consistent edge when sharpening knifes, but after some use I got excellent results. I use a buffer wheel with jewelers rouge after I've used the sharpener to get a polished edge and to remove any burrs. In short, I agree with Greg, highly recommended if you do a lot of sharpening and need a consistent edge.

Mine came with two glass plates with 220, 400, 1000, 4000 grit . I have to agree the plates are easy to change over and I like how the whole system works.
