    Howdy, I've been looking for a blade grinder and would like some input on which on would be the best buy. The Mag is a little out of price range. Have been looking at the RBG and 1 from Foley Bellshaw. I want to be able to do Mulching blades also. Found one from Oregon but it looks a little flimsy. Thanks for any info.. Oh BTW, What are they talking about with Left handed blades??

    Try posting this in the commercial lawn care forum and you'll get a lot more replies. I was gonna suggest the oregon but i'm not sure if it will sharpen curved blades. If its a mulching blade with a straight cutting edge then it would sharpen that.

    How many mowers and blades do you have?? I've always used a 4 1/2 in angle grinder. A steady hand will sharpen any blade.

    The only thing about a hand grinder or a bench grinder is they tend to round off the tip which shortens the blade.
