Sharpen meatgrider blade
« on: November 25, 2019, 10:19:52 pm »
Hello.

I have some sharpening jobs, and often get new things and try myself on.
Thought I was going to show how I sharpen knives for meat grinder.

Here it is important to get the plate with holes in and the knife plane itself.
There are several ways that are faster than the Tormek, but are fully possible with the Tormek.

I have used the DC-250, DE-250, SB-250 and SVX-150 base.

Starting with checking how flat the knife and plate are, these were almost brand new, so there is great potential for improvement.








Then I color the plane sides with a marker.

Then I check if it is flat.


Then I do the same with the knife.




Then check for flatnes again.


And then I do it again with DE-250.

Then I remove the burr in the hole plate with a file.


Then it's time to sharpen the knife itself, color the egg with a marker, and then use the SVX-150 base on the side of the SB-250 and adjust until the marker is gone.






Then grind until I have a smooth grinding phase.


Finish off by dragging some light passes on a diamond plate # 2000 to remove the burr.


Then you will end with a meatgrinder wichis much better than new!

The images are not showing up for me.  Anyone else?

Quality is like buying oats.  If you want nice clean, fresh oats, you must pay a fair price. However, if you can be satisfied with oats that have already been through the horse, that comes at a lower price.

Even, thanks for sharing this well documented task! I believe that the meat grinder performs much better then new.

The images are showing up well for me here in Europe.

Now I wonder if my plates and cutter are flat. I am also wondering if properly sharpened it would cut noticeably easier.

Thanks for the step by step instructions.

Thank you, Even.

Ken, apparently the number of photos allowed in a post has changed from 8?

Elden, I don't know about the maximum number of images. I believe the four only applies to the forum method of storing small images.

We made our traditional cranberry relish this evening. The blades in the photo look just like my Kitchenaid blades used to grind the relish. As a boy, I learned how to use the hand cranked meat grinder. In recent years, I switched to the Kitchenaid. (Please do not tell my mother.....)
