I use a 4.5 angle grinder with a half worn out cutting disk. works great. The secret is the worn out disk. When they're new they're not very true and will hop alot. Then use a file to clean up the back side. Oh yeah, use a wire wheel to clean off whatever plant goop has built up on the blades. I have a couple of Little Wonders and I remove the blades from the machine first.

I add a sandpaper pad on top of the cut off disk and use that combination to sharpen both blades and hedge trimmers.

I disassemble mine and use a six inch fine flat file. it takes longer but does a really good job while extending the life of the cutters.
