FASTTRACK Chisel & Plane Blade Sharpener with Diamond Cross sharpening technology, MPOWER developed a new, high-spec range of “Diamond Cross” diamond stones, specifically for the FASTTRACK Sharpening Systems. Together they offer an innovative and powerful sharpening system that will have you regaining that razor sharp edge in seconds.
Its so simple, chisel in, and sharpen… Plane blade in, and sharpen. There’s No set up time.. No complicated attachments and No experience needed.. Drop it down onto 4 grippy feet and use on the go or mount it to your workbench by screw, bench dog or vice.
The FASTTRACK’s just as ‘at home’ on-site as it is in your workshop. Whether you’re a total beginner or the most discerning of professionals, the Diamond Cross FASTTRACK will deliver the perfect sharpening angle, an edge that’s square to the blade and a flat ground finish. With the angles fixed, you can then easily repeat those angles again and again.
1. So what’s the problem?
Traditionally chisels and plane blades are sharpened using a combination of either an oilstone, waterstone or diamond stone with a jig that holds the tool to be sharpened at the correct honing angle, many sharpening systems require a second jig to accurately set the angle of the first jig. This represents a sufficient deterrent to prevent workshop based woodworkers taking 20 minutes out of their project time to get any kind of edge let alone a decent one on their chisels; and what of the professional “On site” carpenter, do they really have the space or inclination to carry that kind of sharpening system with them? A system that the average home renovator would struggle to even set up in the first place?
2. The simple sharpening solution
The FASTTRACK Precision Sharpening System is a unique solution that holds the blade to be sharpened stationary and its angle constant while a diamond stone is guided across the cutting edge (at a 90° angle to the tool’s normal cutting direction) at either 25° or 30°, depending on your application, making the bevel flat and the edge true, lasting, and requiring only minimal maintenance unless chipped or neglected. We’ve included Preparation and Finishing Diamond stones so you can start low to gain that super fine edge that makes a cutting tool a pleasure to use. The instructions provided will have you putting a razor edge on your chisels and plane irons within a few minutes of opening the package.
