In this video, The Handyguys show you how to sharpen and balance a mower blade. Three different sharpening techniques are shown.
- Using a file
- Using a sander
- Using a grinder
We didn’t discuss using things like a dremel attachment or purpose-built tools for sharpening.
When you sharpen, it is also important that you “balance” your blade. If the blade is not balanced, it can shorten the life of your mower and even be unsafe. We show you a very simple technique for balancing the blade in the video.
PS – Sorry, the shop is sooo messy.
