Rated 1 out of 5Â by Jayo Nice to begin with....
Brought this item to sharpen my chisels and planer blade. I have used the popular standard honing guide made by record but is never accurate and edges go off stray.
After about a few hours use the slide came wedged in the slide and was rendered useless. I think this happen with the metal particles getting lodged into it. I had to take it back for a full refund.
Also the elastic band is a cheap idea - this stops the slider coming out of the guide.
Instead I have purchased the honing guide made by Veritas which is very easy to set up and allows you to put a micro bevel on the edge of a tool.

This sharpener is great and easy to use. No skill required. Used standard stones and oil but never achieved as good a finish as with this sharpener.

I bought this tool after using an electrically driven horizontal sharpening wheel which was vey difficult to set up. The Trend Fast Track does the job beautifully, the only comment I would make is if your chisels are needing a lot of material taken off to achieve the 25 deg as mine I would recommend buying the 90 grit diamond stone. It still is a lot of work to get them back into shape but the end result is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by AceRimmer Well worth buying
Blunt chisels are both useless and dangerous so this is a welcome addition to any chisel-owners toolkit.
I had an oilstone before but could never get my chisels sharp enough to avoid over pressure on the tool and therefore damage to the material.
This puppie does the trick and then some, my chisels have never been sharper.
If you have chisels, you need one of these.
