1. Ladies & gentlemen, I would like to announce that there is a new photo gallery section. You can create your own personal photo gallery (to include setting up your own albums). You can even post videos. You can also post and share photos in the galleries of others (if that person allows such), as well . ENJOY!!!

    Just regular 30 Weight motor oil.

    Leather mounted on a arbor, or a pulley set up, can sharpen blades like the edges that a Barbers gets, The more the leather is used, the better it comes as it picks up some of the metal and basically buffs the edge on. I think this is much to do for a tiny blade and to me, personally, the time is worth more than just tossing the blade for a new one. Then again, that is also part of the hobby, so what ever floats your boat! :)
