Hedge Clipper Sharpening Service
Sharpening hedge clippers is not that difficult but it is time consuming since there are two cutting edges to sharpen for each tooth and there is an upper and lower bar, one fixed and one moving. Also, the bars must be cleaned before sharpening and lubricated after sharpening. So, there is a bit more to it than first appears.
You can sharpen these yourself, but if you do, use a very small flat file and be sure you slide the file down the cutting edge at the same angle as already formed on the edge. If you like, a roto-tool with a carbide tip works very well as it allows sharpening of the gullets also. Just go slow and be careful to not remove too much of the metal.
After I finished this hedge clipper sharpening, I tried it out on my asparagus vines. They are small, limber and hard making them a good test. They worked like a charm.
