well... do ya?
They wear/sharpen all by themselves!
I really wish there were "harder" blades available. They seem to wear too quick sometimes.
I'm lucky if I get a week out of an edger blade, I'm sure not going to manually wear (sharpen) them down on a grinder!
I sharpen the 8 pointed star blade, sometimes, depending on where I am using it. Never the regular straight blade.
Hey was wondering does anyone use double blades on a stick edger? I don't mean with a holder just put two blades together and tighten down. If so how does it work and have you noticed a lose of power of any damaging effects?
It seems to me that this WOULD put enough extra drag on the stickedger that it could possibly create some premature and excess wear on the clutches and so forth. I really couldn't see any reason for this, except widening the gap, and these same results cn be achieved by simply holding the edger out at an angle more.
Never tried it, but mine wouldn't like it much. Why would you want to do this?
Double edger blades would make the edge very wide and unattractive.
Not to mention a bigger breeding ground for crabgrass to form!
Thinner is better when it comes to edges!
Sorry guys i disagree I like the wider edge lasts longer and to me looks better. I don't think that the crabgrass is an issue at all.
