    hey manga matic,

    we have one of your sharpeners and will get pics up soon when it has its special place in our shop finished!

    anyways,curious if you have any machiens that are made to sharpen hedge trimmer blades. i am still looking at ways to save time and energy while getting the job done right.

    i found a machine that was made for this task, but it was in the UK and not wired for the US.

    do you have any thing that would work, or thoughts on the subject, or perhaps even a link?

    Hello Grassman,

    We always love seeing people's shop set-up's. I look forward to the pictures.

    We are doing some research on developing a machine for hedge trimmers, there is nothing in the industry that we have found yet. I'd love to see the one you found in the UK if you have a link.

    Thank you,

    Stihl makes an attachment for their Chain saw sharpener for hedge trimmers...

    cool, have not looked yet, but we still sharpen by hand file with chain.

    is the attachment and tool you speak of expensive? and why did it not come up in all my literally hours of searching?
