Dual rotary blade sharpeners restore a razor-like edge for your rotary cutter. The disk lasts up to six months if used daily. For use with all brands of rotary blades. Not suitable for decorative edge.
I have tried 3 times to sharpen the blade and I can't get it to work any better then before I started sharpening. Was cutting many piece for a King size quilt and really wanted to be able to sharpen the blades I have so that I didn't need to buy so many. I am going to try oiling it per the instructions but not sure I will have any better luck.
i fouind i had to go over the nicked parts several times, in a back and forth motion, then it would take them out. i dont think it sharpens it back to the original sharpness, but mabe 1/4 more life to the blade. Also, the sand paper seems to wear out quickly. At 1/2 price even, i won't rebuy this product, it isn't worth the loss of fabric from bad cutting.
YES it does work. Was watching a quilting show and the quilter used this exact product. So I thought it works for her, it'll work for me - it does work!
where do we get the refill for these sharpeners? I've bought 3 different sizes, I've only seen refill for the 45mm.
I purchased this item about a month ago and hated it when I first bought it. Tried to sharpen my blade and nothing. Finally read the direction and it does say something about having oil on the blade. So I oiled the blade before sharpening and it worked ok. Remember to just turn your blade in one direction. Not a back and forth motion.
I go thru about 1 rotary blade every week or two so I thought this item would save me alot of money by just sharpening my old ones. Wrong! This does nothing for old blades. Just a waste of money. I would have returned it but couldn't find the receipt.
Seriously worth the money! Use the course side (6 or 7 turns) then the fine side (6 or 7 turns) flip and work the other side of the blade. If your blade is really dull repeat. Once you set the blade in it, you can do both sides of the blade and both sides of the sharpener without resetting. Care must be taken when removing it since it sticks in the holder a bit (push it off with a pencil eraser) and of course when reinstalling it in your cutter. This will not fix blades that have chunks out of them from running over pins!
Doesn't do anything - I've tried it several times, There's some sort of sandpaper type stuff glued inside the discs and it was never stuck completely down, so it flaps around when I try to use this waste of money.
