I was wondering if any of you have found ways to get lawn mower blades sharpened cheaply. I have been doing it myself, but it is taking a long time and I would love to just take my blades somewhere and have them ready to throw on the mower when I need to swap them out. I have priced a lot of lawn and garden places and most charge $6.50 down to $4.00 per blade. I think this is a reasonable cost, and about what everyone is charging, but it is still costly. I found one place that only charges $3 per blade, but they are a good 15-20 miles away from me at best. Have any of you found other types of places to get blades sharpened? Like maybe places that sell knives or industrial places of some sort that deal with other stuff besides lawn mowers. Some place where they would just give you a flat rate and you could bring in a good number of blades. I just figured there have got to be other businesses that have to use grinders for various reasons for their customers. Anyway, its just a thought. Let me know if you have any ideas or experience with getting blades sharpened inexpensively. Thanks.
