Trend S/FTS/KIT Fast-Track Sharpening System is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use. 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product 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 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pricey but excellent tool As a DIYer I used to sharpen planes and chisels freehand. I bought the Trend jig and immediately realised how poor my previous technique had been. It has taken me a couple of weeks but all my planes and chisels are as they should be, and will be so much easier to keep sharp in future. It is pricey but I have to allow for R & D costs and it may well be a small market. I think this would fly off the shelves at £30.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sharpener. Used oil stones and diamond sharpening stones for years, but finally decided to treat myself to this sharpener when I purchased a new set of chisels several months ago. Simple to set up and use and great for refreshing chisels after each use. Sharpest my chisels have ever been. One word of warning. The Initial sharpening of new or old chisels especially the 25deg primary angles can take a long time and alot of work depending on how your existing chisel angles match up. Would recommend anyone setting up chisels on this for the first time to invest in the roughing stone which saves alot of time and energy. (Not available from screwfix unfortunatley).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Bought two of these as a result of reviews. After just 12 chisels, sharpened to an adequate standard, both stones on the first kit now have a bald section running through the centre with a thin line of abrasive down each edge. Trend are sending me replacement stones (which is fair enough) but they recommend using lapping fluid to prolong the life of these stones, (at around £10 a bottle!) No mention of this in the instructions. This is not a cheap piece of equipment, and at this price I could buy 12 brand new chisels. Luckily the second kit is still in it's box so I'm returning it ASAP. Don't know what to do with the other, useless, one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Chisel Sharpener I have found this sharpener easy to assemble and easy to use. Quite straight-forward to assemble and I'm hoping for a extended period of use - beats use of the oil stone and guide I previously used. For DIY enthusiast - I fully recommend this purchase.
