View Full Version : Sharpening with hand held grinder

I plan to order one of your balancers, but will need to get by without a dedicated sharpener for a while. Can I use a hand held grinder to sharpen the blades? I have a bench grinder, but find the hand held easier to use. Either way, my blade angle will be determined by eye.

Both a hand grinder as well as a bench grinder take substaintial skill to free hand sharpen a lawn mower blade, and it is possible to use these tools to do so. As always DO wear safety gear (heavy leather gloves, eye protection, hearing protectcion, etc).

Thank you for considering one of our sharpeners when your equipment budget allows for one.

Thank you,
