We get a lot more than that, I buy three or four every spring and they last the summer, they sharpen 5 mowers

Weekly sharpenings a good interval? How long can one expect a set of blades to last? One month?

I found this and it seems to make sense but it also looks like your general marketing hype, too: http://www.magna-matic.com/page/nail-wall-not-balancer

Followed link, read a little, contemplated buying.... made up my mind yes.

Saw price, thought about my budget, and immediately searched eBay.
click pic.



Andy, is this the same thing you have?
Any concerns about what I would be getting if I bought this one via eBay?
Should I worry about sub-standard design or it being a cheap version (ie northern tools)?

I'll wait on your response before buying.

It looks to be the same idea, can't comment on the quality of the stone.
