David the question asked by the OP and the title of the thread is "Hand Auger Blades - Can I sharpen myself?" i take our skates to the same guys every couple of weeks. it's out of my way, but they do the best job. i would never ask or consider them as "skate guys" to do auger blades. they're trained to grind a hollow on a skate blade, not experiment on auger blades with their equipment. granted, maybe some skate shops would do it. how good, i dunno. other commercial sharpening shops will and do sharpen auger blades depending on the style, and do a fine job. then again, i've been turned away by these shops as well. it all depends on the blade you bring in and the equipment in their shop. but that's been discussed in other threads. Spidey is interested in doing it himself.
