    Dremel, and i rank it one step better than sharpening a chainsaw chain. You don't realize how many edges there are until you sharpen each one!

    How do you sharpen it with the dremel with the stone? I just bought these pieces of equipment?

    DO you use the dremel and go in a circular motion go from left and right?

    take it to your dealer.most dealers have a jig to sharpen them,i know i do.also when a dealer sharpens the blades get removed and the gear box gets grease
