Easy Way To Sharpen Bush Hog Blades
"I got behind with my mowing so a friend of mine, Tommy Floyd, came over to help me get caught up. Tommy's mower had a good sized hole in the back of the deck, where it had rusted and then busted out," says William Liles, Jr.
  "He told me he was in no hurry to fix the hole because it made the blades so easy to sharpen. He said he would just stick a 4 1/2-in. grinder under the back of the deck and then look through the hole to sharpen the blades.
  "I thought it was a pretty good idea so I promptly cut a hole in my 6-ft. Rhino cutter. I cut a hole about 8 by 10 in. on the back of the deck, and then welded pieces of L-iron around the edges of the hole to form a track. I put a handle on the piece I cut out of the deck, and then welded four pieces of 1-in. flat iron around the edge of the hole to hold the cover up when it's closed. I put a 1/2-in. bolt on one piece of the track to act as a set screw.
  "This makes sharpening blades much easier. Many thanks to my friend and his rusted out mower."
