Hi my name is Fred Carson I'm from Carson's saw shop in Eugene, Oregon. And I have been sharpening tools for over 30 years and I am here with Expert Village. Okay, this is hand push lawn mower. Don't need a motor to run it, each tire has a little gear inside of here and it turns and rolls on your lawn and it has a gear in there that turns the reel and we have to disassemble this to sharpen it. I need to sharpen it right here and it has a bed knife right here. I've got my special sharpener to pop this off and it pops that clip right off like so. And take your wheel off and there's your gear. And this is the little paul that goes into the gear and runs the reel, you take all that out and do the same thing over here. And this is your roller back here with a have inch wrench. Your roller is your height adjustment with your different blades of grass. I'm gonna need some WD-40. Sometimes these screws are pretty hard to take apart. This is your bed knife right there it's pretty nasty looking. This is a bed knife this needs to be sharpened, and base on the edge too so that it has a square edge to be sharpened and we'll get to that in just a second.
