[BKARTS] kutrimmer and sharpening

Hello all.

I had a 44" (floor model) Kutrimmer for 3 years. It was great for paper and thin board, kept square, clamped tightly.

However, I could only hack at, not cleanly cut, thick or dense boards, or a boards made of two sheets of mat board laminated with paste. The problems with cutting board led me to replace it with a board shear this summer.

I used Jeff Peachey's fabulous board shear sharpener to keep the Kutrimmer blade honed. It works well, comes with clear instructions and is very easy to use. I never found it necessary to send the blade out to be sharpened.

Best wishes,

Any suggestions re: maintaining the edges of a board shear? I have seen the tool designed by Jeff Peachey for honing at the correct angle; is it necessary to send the blade out for sharpening?
