What is in the sharpening compound?

Asked by Stephen August 1, 2016
1
Answer

The sharpening compound is a car/truck engine valve grinding/valve lapping compound. Can be purchased at any automotive parts store for approximately $4.50.

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?

Lapping compound is used in the process of "Back Lapping" a reel mower. First you must properly adjust the bed knife/reel contact. Then you turn the reel slowly (About 1/4 the speed it goes when mowing) backward and brush the compound on the reel. After about 5 minutes stop the process, check reel adjustment, and adjust if needed. I generally check to see if all blades are cutting evenly with a piece of newspaper. If it cuts newspaper it will cut grass. I saw someone made the comment to just brush it on and mow. DO NOT DO THAT. It will round the cutting edge on both the reel blades and the bed knife. Once that happens you will need to take it to a sharpening shop set up for reel type mowers to have a relief grind put back in. BTW if you plan to do ALOT of mowers like for Golf Course Look into a Lapping Machine to turn the reel. I use a 1/2" variable speed electric drill set very slow and a socket wrench that fits over the wheel paul on the reel. BTW - I am a retired Golf Course Superintendent.

Product absolutely essential if you have a reel-mower. Personal preference is to sharpen blades every other cutting. It takes less than 15 minutes to do a thorough sharpening routine. Reel-mower cut is very clean only when blades are sharp. Double cut lawn to get the look of a well manicured golf course fairway.

Simple to use, came with an applicator brush which was a nice feature. Used it only once though, but it did what it was intended to do and my lawn looks a lot better because of the blades being sharpened.

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.

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!
