30th November: The new and improved Fast Track Sharpening System
Increased edge honing and reshaping options for plane irons and chisels are standard with the new Fast Track Sharpening System MK2 from Trend.
Expanding on the highly successful original Fast Track model, the MK2 version uses the same rotating dovetailed sliding carriage design to swap between angles. It also offers consistent square edge honing and reshaping of plane irons and chisels from 3mm to 63mm wide.
Highly durable Mono Crystalline Diamond tapered sharpening stones are held securely in place with magnets for easy swapping and repositioning. Rotating the stones and carriage gives you four different angles of 25°, 27.5°, 30° and 32.5° for honing and preparation work. In addition to this, the Fast Track MK2 comes supplied with 220 and 450 grit stones, both with a unique diamond cross relief pattern for faster cutting and removal of swarf.
For easier honing of chisels and narrow blades, the new centring clip positions narrower blades and chisels in the optimum central location on the base for maximum stone contact and easier control. Honing options can also be maximised by working through the four taper angles in sequence allowing an edge to be honed multiple times. This is done firstly at the 25° setting before moving to each subsequent setting as required to increase the honing angle and keep chisels and plane irons sharp and ready over a longer period of time before the need to regrind.
The Fast Track MK2 is ideal for novices and seasoned professionals alike. It is quick and easy to use. With plastic end caps on the sliding carriage, it increases comfort when used for extended periods. It comes supplied with a non-slip mat to keep the Fast Track from slipping on any surface for safe and secure operation making the new Fast Track MK2 the speedy and simple solution.
