proper method is to use what is referred to as a "lapping table" professional sharpening shops have these , look in your yellow pages for scissor sharpening , but if your a skilled hand and have some time then a simple fine file will work as well , keep same angles on cutting edges ,approx. 30 degree angle
Its a longshot but I had a problem with my hedge trimmer, it kept cutting out when idling. It turned out that a clutch spring was broken so the clutch shoes had nothing to restrain them and would fly out and make contact with the clutch drum and stall the machine. Air locks in the fuel lines will also cause this symptom. These can be caused by running the machine with low fuel level in the tank and cutting upside down or at a sharp angle.
Remove the head, the reel, a knob and a spring will fall out if you arentcareful. Cut about 25 feet of proper size line. Pull 12 or so feet throuth the little hole in the reel and wind the string in the direction indicated on the reel. Leave about 6 inches sticking out on each side. There is a notch on each side to hold the string while you reassemble it. Insert the string into these notches. Reassemble the device and trim away while recalling all sorts of wonderful memories of the times you spent with your dad.
Double position trimmers
For extended reach while on the ground, a double position trimmer avoids you having to climb up high by allowing you to adjust the handle into a right angle to the blades for a level cut across the top of the hedge.
As you trim your hedge, collect those stray cuttings in a clippings collector for a neater finish.
Automatic cut out
An important safety feature, this automatically switches off the hedge trimmer once the trigger is released.
For reassuring safety, a hand guard will protect you from the moving blades and from falling cuttings as you work.
