Vivi’s Kitchen Garden 246: Secateurs (pruning shears); cleaning and sharpening.

Our heavy rain days continue so there’s nothing for it but to get on with some tool maintenance. I have never cleaned or sharpened my secateurs (pruning shears) and it’s high time I learned how to do it. A huge part of living a self-reliant life is being prepared to have a go at anything and everything. Update: Sadly it seems my friend was ripped off by someone selling on-line and that my secateurs are not genuine Felcos. The genuine Felcos should not have a screw in the blade nor cross head screws. The link below is for genuine ones.

  1. Found this really useful vivi
    A little tip that might help ,if you hold your screw driver on to the screw that won’t budge and give the top of the screw driver a couple of short hard taps with the hammer then try to undo the screw again
    9 times out of 10 this will loosen it enough to open it with your screw driver.also soak it in a little wd 40 for an hour 1st.
    Hope this helps
    Steve and cadge.
