Sharpening a Lawn Mower Blade

The Dremel 10.8V Lithium-ion cordless rotary tool is ideal for use with the Dremel lawm mower blade sharpening attachment because it allows sharpening of lawn mower blades in remote locations away from electric power.

What You'll Need:

Other Supplies
  • Socket Wrench and Screwdriver
  • Heavy Gloves

Step-By-Step Directions

Step 1

Refer to your lawn mower owner's manual for proper blade removal instructions.

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.

Step 3

Place the center hole of the blade on a nail with the blade in a horizontal position. A balanced blade will stay level. If either end of the blade moves downward, sharpen the heavy end of the blade again to remove the extra weight. Refer to your lawn mower owner's manual for proper blade installation instructions.
