    I just read at Pat Sloan's blog about a new ruler with a blade sharpening edge. Sounds great.

    Great idea, but wouldn't that ruin the blade if you accidentally rode up on it?

    I don't mind to volunteer as a tester. Someone has to sacrifice and it may have to be me. It will have to be after I start to work so I can afford it, but yes, I will step up to the plate for my friends.

    I'm all for anything that will help my rotary blade to last longer. They are getting very expensive. I gave my stack of used blades to DH and asked him to find out if they can be re honed to a sharp edge. He took them to his job and probably gave them to the machinist there. I haven't heard about them in awhile.

    I agree with you on the rotary blades being expensive and they don't last very long either. I wonder if a knife sharpener would help extend the life. I'll have to give that a try.

    What a great idea. Let us know how this works. I bought the blade sharpener that's basically two circles with light sandpaper on them. Works great. I haven't had to buy blades in a while and I even sharpen my friends' blades too. Lasts a long time.

    I bought the new long rotary blade sharpener. It works the best of any sharpener I've tried and you don't have to take the blade out of the cutter.

    Connecting Threads has the Tri-Sharp blade sharpener for 20% off. This is the one I've had for a while. I think it does a great job.

    Can you tell me where you found it, and the name of it? I've never seen or heard of this one.
    Thanks

    I got mine at Hancocks but there are not instructions.
    AnnaK, would you be willing to do a tutorial using yours? Or just a post if you'd rather? I turned mine to the right, pressing as hard as I could. I couldn't tell any difference after (unless maybe the blade seemed a bit duller). I researched before I bought. There were those it didn't work for and those who loved it. I would like to be able to benefit from having it. For now, I continue slicing through aliminum foil recycled from kitchen use. It does work for me.
