This sharpening kit installs easily on to the backside of the Brill Razorcut 38 reel mower. Included in the kit is a backstop piece that fits onto the mower, with two screws that clamp the piece into place. Also included are three self-adhesive sharpening pads that attach to the backstop piece. Once the sharpening pad and backstop have been attached to the mower, the blades will rub over the sharpening pad, sharpening them as the reel spins. Simply push the mower around for a few minutes to sharpen the blades and remove any rust spots.

The directions that come with it are good. If you already know how to adjust your mower to make the blade cylinder get closer and further away from the cutter, then you're halfway there. This whole process will take about 30 mins. or so. Call it a mini-project, but it's definitely not rocket science.
First, clean your mower blades and the cutter it interacts with. I used an SOS pad and a hose, and then a rag to dry. Wear gloves. This was good to do anyways. Messy and took some time. Next, peel away the sandpaper backing and stick the sandpaper to the metal sharpener. That takes 5 seconds. Then turn the two bolts that loosen the tension on the mower - all the way - and then insert this sharpener until it pops into place. Then hand tighten the 2 plastic knobs on the sharpener (you have to first loosen them to get the sharpener onto the mower). Now tighten the mower until it the blades scrape up against the sandpaper enough to make a noise. Just try to rotate the blade cylinder with your hand to figure this out. You may have to go back and forth with the tightening process, I did. Then make your blade setting as high as it will go (like you are going to cut the tallest grass possible). Now walk or run up and down a sidewalk or other flat surface and listen to the mower sharpen itself. Do this for a minute or so. Then tighten the blades a tiny bit. Repeat process until the blades are sharp and shiny. I did this for a while, I think 6 times or so of tightening with 1-2 mins. of walking/running. You may get away with less, or need more. My blades felt pretty sharp at that point and I was excited to try it, so I stopped. The sandpaper amazingly was still scratchy, although there is a worn line, as there should be. Next, loosen up the blades again until you can unscrew the sharpener and remove it. Then tighten the blades until they just touch the strip you are supposed to use to calibrate the tightness of your blades. You are now ready to rock!
Result: My mower now cuts much cleaner and easier. It was hacking at the grass before and leaving uncut sections, etc...now it's working very good again. There should be a difference after 8 seasons of mowing with it and dulling it down that much!
I would like to be able to compare my blades now to a new mower and see if I got them as sharp as they are supposed to be. Regardless, this product is worth the price for sure and I don't have to dump my mower. For future sharpening sessions, I still have the one slightly/mostly(?) worn strip left and 2 new ones.
Rick Excellent review went ahead and purchased this based upon your review. I just used a small wire brush to clean the blades and the adjusting bar. BTW my Brill takes a 10mm nut for the adjustment...,, I used large ratchet and socket. Instructions said to tighten till hard to hand turn. When first pushing would nearly not go. After about 10 yards easier,, walked around the street and sidewalk hearing the grinding going on,, NOTE you can push it hard and let the reel spin also,, did this for a few minutes,, NOTE I went ahead and tightened the reel about 1/64 1/32 turn,, still fairly easy to turn but sanding was slightly louder again ran a little to grind it some more,,, After I loosened the nuts to take out the holder the paper looked exactly like you said.. Very excited and when I went and mowed later could really see the difference.. OUTSTANDING.. will probably grind the reel every couple of months My grass is 1 1/4 and I mow every 4/5 days PS I have a Gardena electric mower also,, going to see if it will work on it.. GREAT JOB.
Also note that if you mow with a Scotts brand mower, make sure you are not on the lowest height setting or the plastic set bolts for this device will drag on the ground and wear down in the 40 feet you push the mower to activate the sharpening process.
In the end, I'll keep using this product, now that I've worked out the intricacies of it.
Fitting the attachment to do the sharpening is a bit of a fiddly task, but once it is in place the actual sharpening takes only about three minutes.
Definitely a worthwhile purchase. Keeps a great push mower working (and out of the waste stream) - hopefully for many more years.
