Sharpening Tin Snips

Sharpening Tin Snips



Most tin snips have a serrated edge which prevents the tin being cut from sliding. In order to maintain the serrations, it is necessary to use a coarse grinding wheel and not slide the edge across the face of the grinding wheel.

It will probably be necessary to take the tin snips apart in order to be able to sharpen the cutting edges. Be aware that when you disassemble the snips you will probably have one or more spring washers under the nut. Don’t lose them.
When putting the snips back together, adjust the tighness of the nut so that the handles spring apart when squeezed and released.
A drop of oil in the pivot area would be good.

How To Sharpen & Treat A Shovel

How To Sharpen & Treat A Shovel


A shovel is a cutting device – and an earth moving device. And, it is so easy to take shovels for granted. If you want maximum efficiency and the least expenditure of your energy, sharpening and treating your shovel is the way to go.

You need to sharpen the edge, coat the metal and oil the handle.

  1. Mount the shovel to your workbench with the pointed end facing away from you and pointed up. Using a 45 degree angle, pass a 10 inch mill file across the digging edge until you have a nice shiny edge. Turn the shovel over and repeat the process on the other side.
  2. Clean the metal surface and apply a thin coat of oil or car wax.
  3. At least once a season, coat the wooden handle with linseed oil.
