Re: sharpening blades
All you guys sharpen your lawnmower blades? ? ? A helicopter doesn’t fly, it just beats the air into submission, my mower doesn’t ‘cut’ grass, it just beats it down. Doesn’t grow as fast that way, well, at least until the “Wonderful Wife” expresses dismay at the miserable appearance of the yard. And since she cooks so great, I will make sure she keeps on doing so, I make a big production of removing the blade(s) and sharpen on a grinder. Mamas happy for a long time, (and therefore her #1 oldtgeezer is happy) well, until we start getting shaggy looking grass again. If it wasn’t for that cooking advantage, I’d just let the mower keep ‘beating the grass down’.
