For some time now I have hesitated to use my rotary cutter for various projects because the blades seemed to dull so quickly and I didn't want to have to buy new ones. After doing a little research I decided to invest in a True Sharp rotary blade sharpener. I sharpened several old blades that I had kept and have found them to be like new.
The sharpener is an investment (nearly $40) but I think it will quickly pay for itself since I won't have to purchase new blades very often. It is very noisy to operate and next time I use it I plan to wear ear plugs. I ordered mine from Connecting Threads when they were having a sale on cutting tools. I am not being compensated for this post but just wanted to share something that I have found to be helpful.
Now, if I could only find a way to prolong the life of those marking pens that wash out with water....
On a totally unrelated note, here is a redneck cat condo I made for Buddy and Qwill out of a small box and an old tee shirt. It was well received by both of them.
