What does the finished product look like? You'll have to let us know just how much of a difference it made to your lawn.

I will be interested in your results Ken.
I know that we often do things, "just becasue we can", But this seems like a pretty labor and time intensive way to get this particular task done. I use files. A coarse file to get chips out (if they are real bad, I hit them with the belt grinder using a 50 grit belt first) then finish with a fine file and use draw filing strokes. On the side away fro the bevel, I just draw file to remove the burr. The blade will slice cut paper... the grass seems happy, with nice clean cuts. Takes about 15 to 20 minutes. FIVE hours and counting GULP :ohmy:

Thanks guys.

It'll be a while before these get used. I threw on a new set while I worked on these.

So far they are coming out great. Still one edge to go. Probably finish them off in the next few weeks.

Good info! I was thinking about doing the same, but after reading this I doubt I will have the patience to go through it (and I only have the 100 grit stones)...

But I'm still tempted to try it out, maybe finish the mower blades on the WE.

Yep, now that Tom pointed it out, it seems obvious ;)

Don't waste the WEPS diamonds if you don't need to, IMO! :ohmy:

Yeah... that is why I use the belt grinder on the bad ones... even when using files for the rest of the job...

Can't wait to hear the results on your lawn from your WEPS sharpened blades.
