I saw a post here about a Grace Power Blade Sharpener available at Walmart a couple of weeks or so ago and can't find it again. I must have written down the name wrong. All I can find at Walmart is a TureCut Rotary Blade Sharpener for $29.97 and a USA Sharpener for $25.50
Those that bought the "Grace" one really liked it. I don't remember if it was like one of the above (one is a device you put the blade by itself into and the other is running it along an opening still in the cutter.
Any help would be appreciated. I'm going to cash in some credit card points and get a gift card for Walmart and buy a sharpener since Santa did not come through in that area
Thanks Bozie - wonder why I had "Grace" written on my piece of paper. I've sent myself a link to my email address so I get the "real" thing when the gift card gets here. My mind has been having some issues lately
Because "Grace" makes them....but you(I couldn't) can't Google(find) them using Grace....
Linda, I was cutting pieces for the step six of "Easy Street" and changed my blade--like butter!
Oh thank you so much for letting me know I'm not completely losing it I was really getting concerned there for a bit....once the card gets here I can order - something good ought to come out of all the credit card bills we pay Good to hear it works so well...I can then stop using a blade well beyond it's normal useful life (Actually, that's probably more because I'm too lazy to take it apart and put a new blade in it - I do have extra blades - it's the principle of the thing - I think they should stay sharp for far longer than the manufacturer thinks!
One word of warning--after using a dull blade, this will fly through your fabric.
If you have a large quanity of blades to sharpen (I did over 30 at one time), you will find a groove made in your stone. You can pop it out and rotate it one turn. Be sure to keep the oil on it. After you are doing, I took a Q-tip to pull up the excess oil in the chamber below the stone (without removing it) before storing it.
Oh, thanks for the oil tip.
My sweet thoughtful son-in-law gave me one this week. I'm so glad to know it works well.
