    Perhaps this has been asked before but I have not seen it. What do you all do with the used rotary blades? Is there a place where I can sent them to be sharpened? I have more than a few and need to recycle them if possible.

    I wrap them in duct tape and throw them away.

    I save the round containers that mints like IceBreakers come in and put the used blades and needles in there. When it's full I tape it up and throw them out.

    I duct tape them and through them away. At 1.99 for two of them at Harbor Freight I am not about to sharpen them.

    I am sure she wanted you to see that they have rotary blades very reasonable.
