Now, I can get a lot of use out of my tools but you’ve got to make sure that your tools are nice and sharp so you can keep them working and keep yourself worthy. I'm going to show you here what I call tailgate sharpening. I love to use a tailgate because I always have my truck with me and it’s a nice wide surface for me to put my tool on and then to sharp it. But if you don't have a tailgate available, you can use like a bench whatever large surface that you can sit on and put your tool right there in front of you.
And all you want to do is you want to take an eight-inch mill bastard file here. I'm just going to run this file the entire length of my blades edge right here and entirely to the blade. You don't want to do any of that sawing action back and forth then you're going to really damage your blade, but the entire length of it and the back all the way out to the tip, you can also turn your tool over and you can just make sure that the back of it has no grime and sap build up or anything, so just go flat with that. But again, run along that entire blades edge and then what you have done is you’ll feel a little bur back there because you're pushing the metal over.
Now, to remove that metal, you’ll just take your file and you’ll run it against the blades edge like so just once or twice just enough to remove that bur, it’s nice a sharp. Take a little bit of lubricant here, spread down with some lube, wipe it out, any lubricant will work even cooking oil will work for this and you're back in action nice and sharp, ready to do some work.
Now, if you have a tool or a piece of equipment that looks something like this, well then you're going to be there a little bit longer.
