"IF your spindles have gotten out of alignment, ie bent or moved, the blades may wack each other. If this happens grind a little off the ends of the blades."

I disagree. IF this is the case you should fix the spindle problem, not unbalance the blades to adjust to something else that is broken on the mower.

I use the Leaf Gobbler also & this is a great tool during leaf season. Like TPI said make sure the blades are tightened down at a 90 degree angle to each other. I have had the best luck with regular under gator set up.

I'm not in favor of unbalanced blades. Always check balance of blades when sharpening. The Wright Stander spindles have slack in the holes where bolts attach them to the deck. They can move around on you if you hit the dirt or a stump or two. There is VERY little space between blades when they are passing each other. Also good to check length of blades as I have found not all are perfect length.
