How Do Knife Sharpeners Work?


Knife sharpeners are a way of preserving
knives and other such tools that have become blunt with use and therefore less
effective.


Sharpeners work by grinding the knife
against a hard, rough surface. Usually stone is the most common type of
sharpener but sandpaper (which has a soft surface but is hard), can also be
used.



You can take your knives to a knife shop
where they will sharpen them for you (on average once a year), but if you are a
keen knife user and want to keep your knives sharp and in excellent condition,
it might be worth buying a sharpener of your own.



To sharpen your own knives you’ll need to invest in a good whetstone. These are
stones that are available in fine, medium and coarse grits.


The sharpener will come with
instructions about the angle you need to place the knife at in order to sharpen
it.


You can also buy stones for polishing
and to complete the job properly, after you have sharpened your knife, you
should polish it.

Sharpen KitchenAid A-9 burrs


You simply can not sharpen it.
The grinding is not based on actual cutting, but more like crushing. The "knives" are slightly conical pair and you adjust the grain size of the ground coffee by adjusting the space between the two parts.
If it is actually damaged you have to replace it, but if you have been grinding very "oily" beans there might be some left over stuck into the burrs. Then you need to clean it by taking the grinder apart and brush the knives with a stiff brush - do not use soap or water. A stiff toothbrush is just ideal for this.
All the best,

Is there such thing as a knife that doesn't need sharpening?


There are some new knives on the market called "ceramic knives" that are made out of zirconium (the same stuff as fake diamonds.) They don't get dull because they are are wear resistant and should stay sharp for life. Be advised that ceramic knives are very expensive!

Hi, used a blade sharpener for my a2 horse clipper blades and they are still blunt. Do i sharpen between the teeth


no . The blades are sharpened by grinding away the base of the wear until the edges between the teeth are sharp. It also necessary for the tension between the cutting blades is correct other wise the cutting teeth ride up over the hair and will not cut. Have a person who does sharpening of knives ,scissors and blades sharpen the clippers for you as the machine will get it right.

Looking for blades for a 6 inch craftsman Jointer/planer. Model number 103 2066. Manufactured by King Seely. Sears Roebuck do not have but I am wondering if there is are generic blades that will fit. (I...


Most reliable sharpening services will be able to grind knives for your jointer that will work just fine. The key is to match the existing knives as far as thickness (guage) and height of the new knives. You want them to give you maximum life but not extend too far past the cutterhead when adjusted all the way down. I don't know about your machine, but on an 8" powermatic the tip of the knife shouldn't extend more than about .0012" above the circumference of the cutterhead. You can check this with a set of calipers and give the height to the sharpener, then just choose high speed steel or carbide and you're on your way.
If you check the overall length of the knives, sometimes they are slightly under the nominal length, and a 6" long knife could bump into the housing as the cutterhead rotates, so this is one other thing to check before you go ahead and order them 6" long.
But the short answer is, no problem. Just get a reliable sharpener to make them for you, buy a quality steel blank, and have him put a fine grit polish or hone on the knives when he sharpens them...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Chipper Maintenance


Maintenance (excluding the power plant) Your primary maintenance concern with chippers and shredders is their knives. You can re-sharpen chipper knives, whereas you can reverse shredder flail-type knives when dull but you can not re-sharpen them. You must sharpen chipper knives with special sharpening equipment because they are made of high-carbon steel. Maintaining sharp knives can lengthen their life and the life of the machine by keeping power requirements low. An over-dulled or chipped chipper knife will need extensive sharpening, which will remove a large portion of the blade. This obviously will shorten its life. As soon as a blade is slightly dull, you should sharpen it to minimize the amount of blade-material that you remove. All knives need sharpening at the same time to keep them in balance-even if only one is worn or chipped. Also, you must use matched sets to keep the knife the same distance from the anvil for proper chipping and feeding. After removing the knives, clean the area where they are fastened with a wire brush to make sure they will align correctly. Be sure to torque the knife bolts to their proper specifications. You will need to examine the anvil and be sure it maintains a good, square edge. Occasionally, you may need to remove and sharpen it.

Mine is a simplicity 804 easy lock


Your knives may be blunt and need sharpening or replacement.

Check also if the knives are aligned properly. Remove the material and turn the handwheel slowly. The knives should pass each over like a pair of scissors and there should not be any cap between the blades.

If everything seems to be okay and it still does noet cut tne material, replacement is the only option.
