I use a dremel with a sharpening stone, if u don't have one you can also use a power drill with a small sanding disk (1 inch) and course sand paper (30 or 40 grit). or you can use a bastard file. its too tight to use any kind of angle guide so just take your time and do it by eye. it shouldn't take much to get them sharp enough to do the job, over-sharpening is unnecessary and dangerous, and will make the blades dull faster. sharpen all the free blades, top and bottom, then start the trimmers to advance the blades to free up the sides you couldn't get. i use a light penetrating oil to clean the blades first, then lithium grease spray to lubricate.

SOURCE: sharpen hedge trimmer blade??

My trick is to make sure that I always lube the blades after each session with a 3/4 engine oil + 1/4 kerosene mix - making sure that every tooth gets a drops or 2, then run it for a seconds to spread the oil & leave the blades overlapping. Doing this allows the blades to self sharpen I've found. 2 stroke oil , unmixed is about the perfect viscosity aswell.

What is the best way to sharpen bosch AHS 45 16 HEDGE TRIMMER


Please understand, if you do, you may well start a business!
You will have to take it all apart, and then take either a file or a grind stone and resurface the blades.
I know you can learn this skill, if you do not know how, but this time it will take you to do it right will be hours, and if you charge a reasonable rate to do this for others, you may find it cheaper to buy a new one!
You may be able to find a web-site by looking on-line that will tell you exactly you to do this.
God bless your efforts.

Can blades be sharpened


Hedge trimmer blades are really NOT worth sharpening, after you get done paying for the tech rate/ labor, you're better off just replacing them. It would take forever to sharpen each of the 2 blades with all those teeth... Don't waste your money, get new blades.

you can do it yourself with instructions from ehow.com. see below OR you can get it done at a small engine shop repair, where they fix the lawnmowers, slingtrimmers and chainsaws such as Makita, shtil or any other company that makes them. Hope this helps!
How to Sharpen Hedge Trimmer Blades Instructions Things You'll Need
  • Metal filer Eye protective goggles
  1. Sharpen Your Shears
    • 1 Place the hedge trimmers on a flat surface. Ensure that the blades are pointed away from your body.
    • 2 Position a pair of pliers around the bolt on your hedge trimmers. Clamp the pliers on the bolt securely.
    • 3 Twist the bolt counter-clockwise to remove it.
    • 4 Separate the paired blades.
    • 5 Hold one of the handles with the blade facing away from you. Slide a metal filer down the length of the blade until you reach the pointed end. Continue to sharpen the blade for a minute or two, and then do the same with the other blade.
    • 6 Test the blades with a piece of paper. Hold a piece of paper next to the blade, and then try to cut the paper without using a lot of force. If the paper slices easily, then your blades are completely sharpened. If the blades do not cut the paper, continue to sharpen the blades with the metal filer, and repeat the paper test.

Hello,

The blade can be sharpened, the problem is that these are not sharpened to ofter. Finding a person to do it will be.....difficult. I would suggest finding a knive or scissors sharpener, they would be able to handle this.

How to Sharpen a Black and Decker Hedge Hog sharpen-black-decker-hedge-hog-800x800.jpg Maintaining the sharpness of electric timmers can made landscape trimming easier with beautiful results. Electric hedge trimmers make trimming hedges and bushes easier and quicker than using manual hand-powered trimmers. Electric trimmers, the most popular type in the U.S., cost less and require less maintenance than gasoline-powered models. Electric trimmers are used most often by homeowners with the Black and Decker Hedge Hog series being very popular. While they are not premium products, electric trimmers like the Black and Decker Hedge Hog trimmer can keep trimming reliably for years with proper maintenance, including sharpening the blade's teeth.
Difficulty: Moderately Easy Instructions Things You'll Need
  • Work table
  • Two medium size clamps
  • Dremel tool or similar hand-held multi-purpose tool
  • Grinding wheel attachment for hand-held tool.
  • Dremel 971 (or similar) aluminum oxide grinding sharpening stone with a tip small enough to cover the flat facet of a Hedge Hog blade tooth
    • 1 Unplug the electric trimmer before trying to sharpen the teeth.
    • 2 Clamp the electric trimmer to the work table using two clamps if necessary so the Hedge Hog is firmly held down with the blade teeth accessible over the edge of the work table.
    • 3 Insert and secure grinding tip in hand-held multi-purpose tool.
    • 4 Maneuver the grinding tip so it is perpendicular to the facet of the Hedge Hog tooth.
    • 5 Sharpen teeth in one direction, being careful to try and maintain the same cutting edge angle on the sharpened tooth of no less than 35 degrees.
    • 6 Make same number of grinding passes/grind the same length of time a few seconds on each tooth.
Tips & Warnings
  • This task should take about 15 minutes.
  • Keep a light touch; too much force can break the grinding surface.
  • For best results, insert the sharpening bit slightly less than all the way into the tool.
