    Sorry-- I know there have been plenty of posts about blade sharpening but I can't find the answer to the question I have. I want to know what to do in my situation. I don't want to purchase a magna-matic, but I need a way to get the proper angle on my blade with a free-hand grinding wheel. I put my blade in a vice and then go along it with a flapdisc. My Pops seems to be able to sharpen his blades really well, but everytime I do it the angle gets all messed up. Also, what kind of blade balancer do I get? Thanks

    I built a small table out of 2x4 with the top of the table set at the proper sharpening . I c-clamp the blade to the table top and the blade is held at the proper angle. I hold my angle grinder (disk) level with the ground thus sharpening the blade at the proper angle.
