|I have been very frustrated with attempting to sharpen rotary cutter blades with the expensive OTC notions to sharpen the blades. These have but used to no avail, except to lighten my pocketbook and tire my arm (previous review). There was a great tip in the current Oklahoma ASG newsletter on how to sharpen your rotary cutter blades the easy way with very minimal expense and effort!!
To sharpen your rotary cutters, fold up a piece of aluminum
foil so that you have several layers and then just cut through
it several times and your cutter will be sharpened.
Well I am so excited as this works!!!!!! I can't tell you that this technique removes the nicks, which tends to happen on occasion. Also I don't know how long the blade stays sharpened, but this will allow me to extend the life of the blade. This is very green, reduces landfill waste, and much better on the environment, not to mention the pocketbook. Hopefully this will help all of you out there. Happy cutting!
