Drill Press Sharpening Station
Powered by a drill press, this sandpaper sharpening system guarantees a keen edge on your tools.
This sharpening system is powered by your drill press, so there’s no expense for an extra motor. The simple belt-drive mechanism means smooth, vibration-free operation. And with your drill press set at its lowest speed, you won’t generate excessive heat and ruin an edge. The platen and sharpening disks are made from flat and stable MDF. This, combined with commonly available adhesive-backed abrasive disks, offers the ultimate razor-sharp edge and easily repeatable results. And with multiple sharpening disks, each with a different grit, you can quickly switch abrasives as you work.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
