    Its far cheaper in the long run to buy a machine and do this yourself..IMHO

    3-5 around here, I believe that's off not sure, I imagine on would vary.

    Come to think of it, all of 30-45 seconds to sharpen one...
    I could do 30-40 of them for 75-100 bucks make over $1 a minute.
    Pick them up AND drop them off, too.

    Don't forget the cost of that 12" sharpening stone thou lol

    Actually, so long I have a $30 minimum I wonder if $1.50 each (off) wouldn't be profitable?
    Just make sure to let them know it might be extra for severely worn blades, price may vary some with size of blade also.

    Free here. The john deere dealer sharpens for free if you buy from them.
    I usaully drop off 12-15 blades in the morning when i am going by and pick them up when I come back by a couple hours later.
