Answer: 
The lapping compound can be used to sharpen any reel mower, but not all mowers have a place to attach the crank to turn the reel manually. I had a Craftsman mower, and I could not use the crank with it. The lapping compound can still be used to sharpen the reel, but you have to take the wheels off the mower, remove the snap rings from the pinions, and rig the pinions to spin the reel backwards when the Read More

The lapping compound can still be used to sharpen the reel, but you have to take the wheels off the mower, remove the snap rings from the pinions, and rig the pinions to spin the reel backwards when the mower is pushed. Then you have to reassemble it, being really, really careful not to get any of the lapping compound in the pinion assembly, as it can wear out the parts quickly. Read Less

I seem to be missing something here. (or I'm just ignorant..) I don't see any "sharpener" included. Does it "self-sharpen" with the compound applied?

i.e., self-sharpen as you crank it.
Thank you.

Answer: 
Yes, the procedure is to put the compound on the blades, adjust the cutter to press fairly tightly against the reel, and then rotate the reel backwards until sharp. Mowers manufactured by American apparently have a place to put the crank and turn the reel manually. If my Scotts mower has a place for the crank, I haven't found it. Instead, I rig the mower to turn backwards when pushed. It is not hard to Read More
Yes, the procedure is to put the compound on the blades, adjust the cutter to press fairly tightly against the reel, and then rotate the reel backwards until sharp. Mowers manufactured by American apparently have a place to put the crank and turn the reel manually. If my Scotts mower has a place for the crank, I haven't found it. Instead, I rig the mower to turn backwards when pushed. It is not hard to do if you are mechanically minded, but it involves taking the wheels off and reversing the positions of the gears and pawls.
It is also very important to clean off the compound after you are finished, especially making sure it doesn't get into any internal parts. It will wear them down quickly. (It's happened to me.) Read Less

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 46 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It's easy and it works! I am house sitting for a friend this summer. He has an old fashioned reel mower that has seen better days. I was browsing Home Depot on line and ran across this reel mower sharpening kit. Ordering was easy at my local Home Depot store. I had the kit in less than a week. The instructions were clear and simple. And that rusty mower now cuts the grass like it was new again. June 21, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Easy to Use Sharpening Kit I have a Scott 20" reel mower that is great and gets lots of use. It was time to sharpen the blades, something I knew nothing about. This kit made it so simple - the booklet spells everything out easily for a beginner. There is so much compound I will get many sharpenings out of it. I sort of dreaded the prospect of something I wouldn't understand - that was not the case. The mower is sharp and ready to go. Thanks! May 20, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good low priced option for sharpening blades We bought our Scotts reel mower used almost three years ago. We had never sharpened the blades and it was getting to be pretty bad. I bought this sharpening kit hoping that it would solve the dullness problem we were having. The product itself is very easy to use. I was just a bit dissapointed in how dull my blades still were after one application. The product did sharpen my blades and they do cut my grass A LOT better, just not as good as I was hoping. It still has problems cutting the onions that are always popping up in our yard. For the money though, I would buy it again. Especially since there are many many uses out of just one tub. May 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by easily restored blades to cut like new used this product on my great states mower and it did a nice job bringing back sharpness to the blades. the kit is very easy to use, it does require a little effort to crank the wheel, and a dull set of blades may require additional applications. the instructions are easy to follow and you will have plenty of product left over to use on further applications when the blades need sharpening again. also included in the instructions are directions to adjust the blades on your mower, which may also be needed to help you get the best cut. with this kit and just a minimal amount of maintenance, your reel mower should last a lifetime. May 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by super easy to use I am already bragging about this product to my friends and neighbors I have a seven blade reel lawn mower I used this on. I am happy with the results. April 28, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by What I expected. This thing does what it is supposed to do. And good instructions are included. But it is a workout: when the mower "knife" is adjusted properly against the mower blades for sharpening, there is the necessary slight contact with the knife needed to allow the abrasive compound to sharpen the blades. And that contact creates a resistance that is TOUGH with the hand-crank for the 7-10 minutes recommended in the instructions. So I'll be using the compound, but with a half-inch drill instead of the hand-crank. October 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works as advertised With this kit, I was not able to sharpen the blade to be as good as new, but this certainly improved the edge. March 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product The instructions were very easy to follow and I was done in no time. I bought my Scotts reel mower 4 years ago and it had never been sharpened since. It also got slightly neglected during a house move that left the blades rusted. After 5 minutes of cranking the blade with the sharpening compound, the rust was gone and the blades were sharp. The one vague area in the instructions was how to tighten the blades for better sharpening and cutting. I had to get the instructions for my mower out to understand the blade adjustment.
