The fall months are a good time to sharpen and repair dull, hardworking tools. Use a flat mill file to smooth out rough edges and nicks in your metal tools. Be sure to run the file along the bevel, just enough to sharpen the blades. It is much easier to sharpen tree toppers and pruning equipment if you unscrew them. Using a whetstone works best for this task.
