    Have bench grinder, need info on Jig or whatever methods used to PROPERLY sharping the blades on our DC's.

    Thanks, BTW love this forum have probably read 80% of posts in the last three nights. Lots of good information you fellas are putting out. I know it has me rethinking the way we do things in Ohio.

    If you want to sharpen your blades accurately (correct angle) get a dedicated blade grinder. There are some real nice ones out there. Try a search on blade grinders. Good luck.

    Where in northwest ohio are you and who sells DC'S in the area because I didn't know of anyone around here who sells them. We use a r.b.g grinder and love it. If you are anywhere near Oregon I would be glad to show you this grinder and how easy it is to operate.

    I just bought an R.B.G. 121 off of a fellow lawnsite member and I love it. It really makes a difference. Just do a search on them and you can find out how to purchase one. I used to handgrind all my blades but I found out when I got a dedicated grinder for my blades that I wasn't holding a very accurate angle at all. Hope this helps:)

    No chance. I've spent countless hours here over the last YEAR and I probably still haven't read 80% of everything!

    But to answer your question, as others have mentioned a dedicated blade grinder is best.
    However, since you asked about a "jig" to give you the right angle on your bench grinder, check e-Bay under blade sharpener.
    There is a guy there that advertises a "jig" just as you mentioned.
    I couldn't tell you whether it works or not, but it fits your question. Good luck.
