    im trying a new trick that seems to work pretty well. a hand file with good handle. i concentrate in the bringing back the edge on the first 4 inches. takes little time ,and works well. saves a lot of metal and hassle, and exstends time between removing the blades. use a high quality file. good luck

    That works quite well but does indeed take quite a bit of time to do. I used to use that method of sharpening when I had a lot more free time.

    why not just get an angle grinder. That is what we do all the time. Saves us loads of time
