Mower Blade Sharpener
"It sharpens perfectly every time and the sharpened angle of the blade remains the same next time you sharpen it," says R.A. Wagner, Sumner, Ill., about his home-built mower blade sharpener designed to fit onto any 6 or 8-in. bench grinder.
  It was made from several pieces of angle iron, a piece of pipe, and a steel rod. It bolts to the work bench with a single bolt.
  The blade is held in place on the horizontally-mounted piece of angle iron by a C-clamp. It pivots in and out from the grinding wheel on a single bolt pivot. The entire assembly slides back and forth on a piece of steel rod, mounted horizontally just above the workbench. A short piece of pipe welds to the underside of a piece of angle iron at the base of the unit.
  "You can adjust it to fit the cutting edge on any blade. You slide the blade back and forth until sharpening is complete, and then flip the blade end-for-end and repeat the process," says Wagner.
