Spacing markings equidistantly can be tedious and prone to error; it’s easy to make mistakes calculating the distance between the marks. The Point-2-Point from M-Power makes spacing marks equidistantly almost as easy as pulling out a tape measure.

Sharpening hand tools takes either skill and practice or expensive equipment.  And unless you’re going to recreate the bevel free-hand, setting up the guide also takes time.  M.Power designed their Precision Sharpening System (PSS1) to provide an easy and inexpensive way to quickly put the edge back on your tools.

Instead of running the tool across a diamond abrasive stone, M.Power’s PSS1 holds the tool stationary and you move the diamond stone across the cutting edge.  You can sharpen chisels and plane irons from 1/8″ to 2-1/2″ wide.
