Rotary Blade Sharpner

Prior to becoming overpowered by the ‘power tool’ trance of the Innova Longarm and PantoVision I thought, honestly I did, that the oil industries, razor blades and politicians were the biggest rip offs to the consumer. I stand corrected…replacement blades for rotary cutters exceed all three. Well they did for a while until I started researching alternatives. Like my Grandmother use to say, Well lo and behold look at this!


If you have not been properly introduced may I present TrueSharp Power Rotary Blade Sharpener. I know it says TrueCut…but according to Amazon it is TrueSharp…if interested just go to Amazon and type in either…it will take you to the product…saw it also on It is a ‘power sharpener’ that will sharpen 28, 45 and 60 millimeter blades. Are we talking factory edge…absolutely not. Are we talking putting an edge back on a dull blade several times, so far we are experiencing at least four times the blade life. I don’t use mine as often as Elaine, but I haven’t put in a new blade and I’ve been using this blade for three months. On Amazon it is listed at $37.99…you do the math. There are like close to a hundred reviews…they averaged out to 4 out of 5 stars. I would give it 5 stars, but I take out my hearing aids when I’m working on a quilt, cutting, sewing, longarming whatever and wear a wireless headset and listen to classic rock. So I don’t hear the noise…and yes it is a little loud. But I’ll take the noise over the cost of new blades…on any given day. til  later…Les…quilt till you wilt.
