MPOWER
launched the Original FASTTRACK Mk1 in 2004. In that time we’ve made and sold over 100’000 of them. Along the way we received great feedback from our customers and perfected the improvements now featured in the NEW FTS Mk2. Remaining at its heart, the ability to repeatedly create a super sharp, flat ground, square edge chisel and plane blade in a few minutes.

New BAR Recess Diamond Stones
The design of the Diamond Stone recess pattern has followed the rest of our sharpening range, starting with DMT Polka dots, progressing through to our own Diamond Cross recess. However, FASTTRACK’s requirements are different to the rest of our range.
The FASTTRACK sharpens laterally (side to side) with the stone operating at an almost inverted angle.
Recognising this led to an upgrade; a unique interrupted surface designed specifically for the FASTTRACK. The clearance or evacuation channels now run top to bottom when in position on the Carriage. Combine that with a lubricant and good old gravity and the sharpening swarf drains from the surface more quickly which in turn keeps the stone cleaner for longer maintaining abrasive rates. In short, it’s much better!

The FASTTRACK is so simple to use, chisel in, and sharpen… Plane blade in, and sharpen. There’s NO set-up time.. No complicated attachments and No experience needed. Just place the FASTTRACK down on a clean flat surface and start sharpening.

The FASTTRACK’s just as ‘at home’ on-site as in your workshop. Whether you’re a total beginner or the most discerning of professionals MPOWER’s FASTTRACK Mk2 will deliver the perfect sharpening angle for an excellent edge again and again.

Functions

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°, 27.5°, 30° or 32.5°, 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.

Features

4 SHARPENING ANGLES
The newly re-designed solid Aluminium diamond stone holding carriage doubles the number of sharpening angles than the original. This in turn doubles the life of your chisels and plane blades by allowing over 20 chisel re-sharpens between primary re-grinds. The angles are coded 1,2,3 and 4 making it simple to move from one sharpening angle to the next.

CENTER IT CLIP – Get the blade in the middle
The most important development is the “Center It Clip that re-locates a chisel in the middle of the tool bed. This reduces the pressure needed to hold the chisel during sharpening; but it also prevents the carriage coming off the end of the base. So it increases the length of the sharpening stroke, making the sharpening process quicker.

ERGONOMIC CARRIAGE
The new carriage is much more comfortable to use with curved ergonomic handle ends to more naturally fit the hand. Especially noticeable after an ALL chisel honing session when you could be using the FASTTRACK for a 30 minute set.

Saw the ad and it sounded like a very logical way to quickly sharpen or touch-up the cutting edge of plane blades and chisels. After working on one chisel for about 1.5 hours, it was worse than when I started. I put it back to working order with my Tormek and now wish I had saved the money.

Carl K. (verified owner)

This is an awesome tool, because it is very convenient to set up and very easy – foolproof – to use. For example today, when I noticed a chisel wasn’t as sharp as I’d prefer it. Typically, I’d make due with the chisel as is (not a great idea). But because the alternative would be to set up an entire sharpening activity, which would distract me because I’d end up pulling out all my chisels; it would be a whole project of its own.

Instead, I just pulled out the sharpener bag and in a couple of minutes I had the chisel tuned up enough to get back to work without losing focus.

Caveat: I haven’t yet tried it out for a “full” sharpening effort (that is, running through a range of grits to repair a chisel rather than the touch up I did today).
