Hi guys, does anybody know how much it is to have the blade sharpened on petrol lawnmowers?

 

My Oh has just got a Suffolk Punch petrol lawnmower, and absolute bargain too, it has only been used a couple of times, new condition, and even second hand these babies can go for a couple of hundred, they're £600+ to buy, so £55 was an absolute steal! :-D

 

Anyway, it's perfectly fine right now, we were just wondering when we need to have it done how much it would be roughly?

Had one of those some time ago great little machines in my view.

 

If it has only been used a couple of times it should be a long long time before you need sharpening.

 

However, we had it done once and this was by a blokey who came to the door offering to sharpen knives, shears and the like. He did ours for a tenner but maybe fifteen to twenty these days perhaps.

 

As I say, I reckon you have an awful lot of cutting to do before you will need a sharpen.

Have a look online and find a good motorised sharpening stone. They dont cost much at all. Simply switch it on, take the blade off the lawnmower, hold it with gloves at an angle and slowly grind it. Unless it is really blunt, you wont need much pressure or time on the stone at all. You can also use the stone for sharpening any number of tools. Both household and gardening.

 

You can buy a brand new professional one for around £150, so a second hand on in good condition would be very cheap. Might even be able to hire one from your local hire shop for £10-15 a day or two.

 

SOmething like http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ROK-Tools-240v-Bench-Grinder-150mm-RPBG150/190723384571?_trksid=p2047675.m1986&_trkparms=aid%3D555003%26algo%3DPW.CAT%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D29%26meid%3D200641962035231206%26pid%3D100013%26prg%3D1013%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D281098491209%26, but a little bigger. Just make sure you get a good grade on the stone. Too rough and you'll wreck the blade. Too fine and you'll simply be polishing it, not sharpening it.

I like the idea of polishing it renegadeimp :lol:

 

Thanks guys! And yes ims, it is a cracker! I am not really into machinery, all apart from motorbikes, but I found myself actually thinking it was gorgeous :!:

 

I think we'll probably get the experts to do it, as I've just about got sharpening my kitchen knives down to a fine art :lol:

:lol: You do make me laugh UKA :lol:

 

I was once, and many moons ago - 27yrs ago to be precise, a biker chick! I made a few silly mistakes though in my time, one of which was to jump on my then boyfriends new motorbike with no shoes on, gaining myself a full sole blister, although I don't think I had much of a pain threshold back then, had it have been now, and I think I would have died with the pain :lol:

 

The then boyfriend was a grave digger, which was quite funny considering people look at bikers as the devils spawn or grim reapers in disguise anyway :lol:

 

I was part of a bike club in Cheshire, but please don't ask me to remember the name of it, too many years have gone by, and to be honest I walked around in a teenage trance most of the time back then lmaoo!!

 

Most of my family have been into bikes, my Dad owned a Vincent 5000! I'm also very lucky were I live, because the riverside cafe, which is a local stop off point for all the bikers cruising through the dales, so I get to see some beautiful bikes, the only downside to that cafe is, it was once Jimmy Savilles favourite place to hang out too :!:

 

It was my dream to own my own bike, but sadly it never happened and I'm not in the health to get one now - besides, my OH is very much anti bike, in fact they are one of his fears, he cringes when he sees a bike opening up on the country lanes or motorways rofl!

 

Oh, and one year I got to go to the Isle of Man when the TT races were on, as it's around my birthday, so I shared a catermaran with tons of bikers, and there's a road there that you're permitted to do any speed you want on too! Amazing, a bikers dream :-)
