STEP 2

Step 2

Clean any dirt and debris from the blade. After securing the blade in a vise, sharpen the blade with the lawn mower sharpener attachment, following the original beveled edge of the blade. Recommended speed: 25,000 rpm.

Place the center hole of the blade on a nail with the blade in a horizontal position. A balanced blade will stay level.
