Trade up to a discbine! LOL

Seriously, I use a 4&1/2" grinder, but I've seen old timers use a flat file!

I also have one of those "handy dandy" tools for replacing sections without removing the knives from the cutter bar.

Edit: Just to clarify what we're talking about
Section = triangular blade attached to knife/knives

Knife/knives = moveable bar that sections attach to

Cutter bar = stationary bar with fingers/guards that knives slide into

HTH, Dave

Dave, I was going to mention terminology, you beat me to it, except over here we have always called the bar and sections assembly the knife.

LOL! "Hand Dandy Tool" I have one too. Now I use the bolted sections. Find a good NH nugget now and again...little ones fly forward out of the rolls like a cannon shot! HAHA!

I'm running a NH 408 discbine now, so I only have to worry about sections on my old JD # 8 sicklebar mower!

The "handy dandy" tool is a pain, unless you have the right socket on an 18" breaker bar!
