    I have used the same two sets for over ten years. Due for a change, now.

    I have spun the hex-shaped anvil each time.

    You still need a fresh edge on your anvil.

    New compared to sharpened-used is about triple the cost, minus anvil adjusting labor, and two trips to the hardware store.

    There is a spec on minimum blade dimension.

    Sharpening industrial cutting knives is a normal thing to do.

    If you have a bunch of dull, formerly new, sets, they will all get sharpened to approximately the same size, within the wiggle room of the anvil gap, likely.

    This will mean if you have 3 sets of blades, you can change your anvil to a fresh edge and rotate 3 sets without adjusting the anvil, IF your anvil is square enough.

    Mine is hexagonal, and needs rotation each time I change blades. I'm anal about not putting rocks in the chipper, like not running a saw onto concrete or rocks. I think I get more yards of chips per sharpening than average. I don't trust anyone else to change them. It's not as simple, and straightforward as modern chippers. Way not- foolproof.
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.

    Poor Fi

    I always wear gloves when changing chipper blades.
    I'm skeered of the new one, they are scary sharp.
    Never thought of being careful with the old one, but I will now.
