We all know how expensive it is to buy rotary blades...especially when you're a very active quilter like myself. Again, like myself I'm sure many of you have tried different blade sharpeners. They are labor intensive and unless you put a lot of muscle behind it, the sharpeners don't really work that well.
Well The Grace Company has changed all that because they have come out with this...
It's the True Sharp Power Rotary Blade Sharpener!!!
It sharpens 28mm, 45mm, and 60mm blades all with the push of a button. It comes with both coarse and fine grit stones that sharpens even the dullest blade. To use it you plug it in and follow a few simple directions.
To use the machine all you have to do is put a drop of oil on each stone (the one on the machine and one on the lid). Insert the blade into the right ring. Here's a picture with a 45mm blade placed inside.
Next, close and latch the lid and then press and hold down the button for 30 seconds. Open, flip the blade over and repeat. The duller your blade, the more times you may have to rotate the blade and continue sharpening.
Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
I LOVE this little gizmo and yes I've already tried it out and it really DOES work. So go throw away those old hand crank blade sharpeners and get thee to your local quilt shop and ask them to order you one or go directly to http://www.graceframe.com/.
