    I have three WEPS rigs, a Sharpmaker, a Worksharp and about a dozen bench stones.

    Tom, Which Work Sharp do you have? Do you have Ken Onion attachment with 1 inch wide belts? I am looking at it to re-profile badly damaged kitchen knives. I only do it occasionally for family and friends. Some reviewers advise 1 x 30 belt sanders, but I like Work Sharp small size. Do you think it can be used for occasional re-profile jobs? Thank you!

    Lansky, paper wheels, plywood wheel, Kalamazoo 2×48, delta 3×36, stones, some electric sharpener with three stones, strops, steels, but finally got the WE propack 2, with extra stones, will not go back, actually love this system, but I do see a Tormak T8 in the future as a quick edge on knives I make and other tools

    Do you have the two Tormek systems set up differently? I bet that allows you to be very efficient when sharpening customer blades.

    I have the older, narrow-belt WorkSharp and the only thing I use it for is when I need to remove a lot of metal.  The Ken Onion attachment looks really good, but I’m too cheap to lift my leg as high as the big dogs.

    WEPS Field Pro; electric: Chef Choice diamond, Shun ceramic; HF 1×30; Messermeister white ceramic rod

    1. After learning the feel and sound of max bevel contact with the diamond paddles, I can now free hand true up my kitchen knives on the Messermeister (very light strokes). I have 8 non-serrated steak knives, some of which hit the dinner plate every day but I don’t care.

    2. I am currently modifying my HF 1×30 to variable speed using a free treadmill motor to handle reprofiles, thinning and polishing

    I am going to start a thread on acoustic sensing.
