    Nice to see that there are still men who take care of their tools!! I
    learned from my dad and passed that on to my son. Very informative video
    and just what I was looking for. Thank you!!

  3. Rex Rexerest says:

    Thanks, I always wondered how to do that. I remember somebody saying no
    man should be without a good hoe.

    I learned to sharpen a hoe in the cotton fields as a kid about 60 years
    ago. Didn’t do as good a job as you did in the shop.

    Best tool tip I ever got was from my uncle Fred. He would say……
    No job is done until the tools are put away.
    Thanks uncle fred.
    Have a Jesus filled day

    Thank you for your post. Had my tools for a couple years now and they are
    in serious need of some attention! You make it seem easy and
    straightforward. Happy Spring!

    You know, it’s sad that when I was a kid there was always an old guy out
    back of the hardware store who would sharpen your tools for you, or your
    Grampy or dad or an uncle would show you how. Since I decided to start
    growing some of my own food I’ve had a lot of lessons in how little we
    remember about how to use our own hands, get productive use out of our
    property. Thanks to you and people like you for documenting these basic
    skills for those of us who need a little help and shared knowledge!

  14. Lois Laney says:

    The hairs stood up on the back of my neck when you started sharping your
    hoe. Like fingernails on a chalkboard. lol Come do my tools, they really
    need it. I am kinda lazy in that department. Great tips. Thanks.

    Excellent video, Tim. To be completely honest, i’ve never sharpened a tool
    in my life. Now you’re making me feel guilty :) haha. Seriously though,
    good tip. Any advice on how to sharpen a 4 tine garden fork?

  22. DubandDebs says:

    When you told us what kind of a file you’d taken out of the drawer, I
    thought Deb was hollerin for me. Seems she calls me that pretty frequently.
    Wonder what’s up with that?? LOL! Keepin your hoe sharp is a must. Tim,
    back in the day we’d use those big ole eye-hoes in the orange groves hoein
    around trees, pullin the dirt up bankin them for winter, and we’d stop and
    sharpen them quite often. The tireder we’d get, the more we’d sharpen em!!
    BREAK TIME! No, a sharp hoe makes a huge difference!
