Love the video Lenn. Thanks for posting it.

Is that a new cutting bar or did you refurbish it. Looks brand new.

Do you sharpen the cutting blades with a file?

Thanks Charlie, the sickle bar is what came on it. It had three broken sections so we made new ones and sharpened them all with a side grinder.  :)

I used to have an electric sickle sharpener, but it was next to abunch of scrap metal that was stolen out of Grandpa's shed and they took that too  >:( Likely went to scrap...

By the way, facebook must be stalking me, look what popped up on my Marketplace suggestions this morning  :D  They sure get good money for newer ones!! :o  :o
