Re: Garden Tools - sharpen them?
I would suggest purchasing a fine metal file and/or a whet stone and learn to sharpen your tools yourself. It is not difficult to do, nor is it all that time consuming, it will certainly take less time than taking the tools to a shop.
Google "knife sharpening" for the basics on how to use a whet stone and apply that to sharpening your tools. Hand shears will likely need to be disassembled, again, not a difficult task and it will allow you to thoroughly clean and lubricate the tool, extending it's life and ease of use.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
