sharpmaker question...

Postby Lt.Hawkins » Fri Oct 19, 2001 12:00 am

so i've sharpened my small collection of knives, my leathermans, both blades on my SAK, the blade on my mini-SAK.

but the instruction booklet doens't explain how to sharpen tennis balls <img src="sad.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle> i'm pretty sure it can be done- maybe im just not grinding it right.

oh well, i'm gonna go sharpen a bowl of pudding in the meantime.

The trick with shapening tennis balls is to give it 3 strokes on one side, then turn it clockwise before giving it alternate strokes on the other side. Don't forget to make sure that all the short fibers are lying in one direction before you commence the alternate strokes or you will never achive a fine fuzz. <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>
