I save the blades as shown and when I need one for scraping I use the blade in a small vice grip. when I take metal in for recycling I give them the jar. I have been doing this for 20 years or so.

do you mean you throw away perfectly good blades without sharpening them at least once?:lol:

When i was a kid we had one of those that could do single or double edge blades.   Don't know what ever happened to it; expect my mom threw it out to keep me from playing with it.  :o

I thought about it. Remember when we used to sharpen double edged razor blades with a drinking glass? Don't think that would work with box cutter blades, though. Besides, the last batch I bought was 500. Should last a while.

I pile all the metal I find, put it on a trailer and haul it to a scrap metal yard. I get almost enough to pay my gas. One company is buying all these businesses, and the small businesses are being forced out. A big magnet picks up all the metal it can attract.

Did anyone think the solid waste person also knows it will come to his facility and be filtered out in the sludge that they transport routinely to a hazardous wast facility.

 

He may have offended many but thought of the process but did not state it.

I have one and it still has the original box. Most young people have no idea what a double edge razor blade is and certainly are intrigued when I show them this. I may post a short video.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
