To get the best quality cut out of your lawn mower, you’ve got to keep the blade sharp — but it’s not exactly easy holding that thin sheet of rusty metal at just the right angle over the rapidly spinning abrasive stone on your bench grinder, without losing a finger or at the very least taking a bite out of your blade’s cutting edge. Lawn-conscious consumers can make the job safer and easier with Dremel’s lawn mower and garden tool sharpening attachment.
The attachment fits on most Dremel MultiPro Rotary Tools, screwing on in place of the standard housing. It includes a 932 aluminum oxide grinding stone and a nylon guide that holds your lawn mower blade at just the right 40-degree angle as you slide it along the stone. Dremel also claims that the sharpener can put a fresh edge on other garden tools such as shovels, hoes, and axes.
Amazon lists it for $6.71, and it’s eligible for free shipping if you hit the $25 mark.
