    Rotary blade sharpeners - need recommendation

    Has anyone bought & used a sharpener for their rotary cutter blades? If so, what was your experience? Did it work? What brand do you recommend?

    I have this one. Every few months, I hand it over to DH and he'll spend about 30 minutes sharpening all my blades for me. Love it!

      I have th True Sharp Power Rotery Sharpener. It is nott cheap but is easy to use and does a great job. I purchased mine on Amazon.

        If you type "rotary sharpeners" in the search box, you'll find quite a few discussions/recommendations for them.
        I don't have one yet but I'm really thinking about investing in one.

          Thank you all! I knew I could get a fast answer here...
          I've been thinking about getting one of these, thinking it might save money in the long run, considering the cost of blades.

              How does this work exactly? I can't figure it out.

                It actually is easy but kind of hard to explain. That thing with the 2 handles (?) unscrews and you place your blade in there and then screw it back to the shape is currently in. Then you slide that through the hole in the round thing and grind it around about 20 turns. There is a coarse side and a fine side - you grind on the coarse side first and then finish with the fine side.

                The directions on the package (which I have thrown away) are a lot clearer than mine :-)
