    question about rotary cutter blade sharpeners

    Does anybody use a rotary blade sharpener, and does it work? Do you like it?

    Are you talking about the electric sharpeners? I only have the hand held ones, and they work well. But you have to sharpen the blades when they need it. If you keep using it, making it duller and duller as you go, you won't be able to get a good edge again. I hope I explained this well. The minute mine starts leaving one thread uncut I take it to the sharpener.
    Warning! If someone comes to your door telling you they are from the government and they're checking to see how bad the ticks are in your area, and then tell you to take off your clothes and dance around so they can check for ticks.... DON'T DO IT!!! This is a scam! They just want to see you naked! I wish someone had told me this yesterday, I feel so stupid.
