How To Sharpen A Shovel

Question From: J. Miracle - MICHIGAN
Q: How to sharpen a shovel, do I sharpen the top of the blade or the bottom side of the blade?


Jim you sharpen the top of the blade, that is the side that faces up when you are digging. I use a mill bastard file. If you use a machine sharpener. Keep it moving so you don't overheat the metal. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
