      Subject: Re: [RoboMower] sharpening blades

      I've sharpened my blades countless times now.

      I've used a Dremel, but now I generally prefer the good old fashioned knife sharpener. The one with the carbide "V" built into it that you just swipe down the blade and cuts a fixed angle every time. The angle it makes seems to be appropriate. This is handle because that "wing" part where the blade turns is a bit hard to figure when sharpening with say knife sharpening rods, but that tool or the Dremel generally handles it right.

      The only thing the V-sharpener has trouble with are nicks and the very end of the blade. You could always use a Dremel to fix this if it's difficult.

      The blades have negligible recycling value. It's steel, the content of several soup cans at best. Few recycling centers would even want that in the flow because there's a bunch of plastic stuck to the steel.

          This unit sharpens only one edge at an angle like the configuration of
          the mower blades.

            Yeah, that's the tool I use.

            Actually, it sharpens both sides of the edge, which now that I think about it is wrong for a Robomower blade. Only the top surface should be cut. However, I always held it so that one side of the "V" is flat against the bottom surface so the bottom doesn't really get sharpened which is what we want. Maybe a bit of a light scratching on the bottom at worst, the top gets the angle cut into it.
