Neat idea. That should do the job and most likely a lot of other things could be made from used blades. Thanks for sharing

Looks very useful. How did you attach the handles to the blade?

I used gorilla glue epoxy to attach the handles.

Recycle, reduce, reuse. Great! How much does it weigh?

I just removed my old blade a few weeks ago. Thanks to you, it will be removed from the scrap metal pile for repurposing. Nice work with yours.

Be careful. Someone might start calling you the Lawnmower Man.

Thats really one of the most unusual projects I have seen in a while.

Definitely deserving of a Top 3

Now THAT is a drawknife! I imagine it will remove what you want removed and pretty quick. Nice job!
