M-POWER FASTTRACK PRECISION SHARPENING SYSTEM (PSS1)
With Diamond Cross Technology
M.POWER has developed the brand new “Diamond Cross” stones specifically for the FASTTRACK Sharpening System (formerly known as the PSS1) to bring you an innovative and powerful combination sharpening system that will have you regaining that razor sharp edge in seconds. Chisel in.. and sharpen. Plane blade in... and sharpen. No set up time.. No complicated attachments and No experience needed.. It's that simple. From the total beginner to the most discerning of professionals. The FASTTRACK Sharpening System paired with the new Diamond Cross stones will deliver a flat ground edge every time.
This is one of those tools that when you see it you'll say “now that's a good idea”.
The FASTTRACK Sharpening System is made up of two main parts, the base and the stone holding carriage. The base sits stationary on your bench as does the tool you want to sharpen. Only the carriage slides back and forth on nylon rails to create a perfectly flat bevel and razor sharp edge.
Traditional sharpening systems require that a steady hand move the tool across a stationary stone. More often than not, this results in a convex bevel which makes it very difficult to achieve a razor sharp edge. With the FASTTRACK your cutting tool is stationary and the stone is moved back and forth across the bevel.
The carriage will create two different angle bevels, 25 and 30 degrees.
Two stones are included with the system, a 220 grit preparation stone and a 450 grit finishing stone. Additional stones are available, Extra Coarse, Fine Finishing, and Super Fine Finishing..
Made in England.
NEW ACCESSORY: When sharpening on the FASTTRACK the burr removal was carried out by hand; wiping the flat of the blade on one of the FASTTRACK diamond stones. However this can now be achieved much more quickly by fitting the FASTTRACK accessory “De-Burring plate”. After sharpening simply sliding the blade back away from the carriage and across the De-Burring plate and the wire/burr is wiped clean from the blade. The Oil resistant 3M self- adhesive backing ensures that when it's fitted it's down for good. Fitting the De-Burring plate has an added bonus; due to the naturally abrasive surface of the diamond plate. Holding any chisel or plane blade during the sharpening process becomes easier as the diamond plated surface tends to grip and hold the blade in position better.
Not all Diamond Cross Stones have the Diamond Cross Pattern. Performance statistics are identical even though the surface pattern may vary.
