    I use a hand grinder to sharpen my blades... Read some info on Magna-Matic Blade sharpeners.... $580 bucks ..... Anybody use them? Are they really that good and efficient??

    Wow another thread on blade sharpening....Could it be we haven't covered this topic yet?

    Try the search button. Look for "blade sharpening" and "Magna-matic" you will get about a thousand responses.

    Hand grinder like you. Was never as good at it as the other guy I worked with. He seemed to get an almost perfect balance on the first try. We usually just got replacement blades to save time.

    We use a hand grinder or a bench grinder. Either one works good but not as good as a blade sharpener.
