M-POWER DMT PSS SHARPENING SYSTEM
M.POWER and DMT (leaders in diamond sharpening technology) combine to bring you an innovative 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 Precision Sharpening System 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 PSS Professional 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 PSS 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. Four additional stones are available, Extra Coarse, Fine Finishing , Super Fine Finishing and 8000 grit Polishing.
Made in England.
NEW ACCESSORY: When sharpening on the PSS the burr removal was carried out by hand; wiping the flat of the blade on one of the PSS diamond stones. However this can now be achieved much more quickly by fitting the PSS 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.
