    How do you sharpen them?

  7. R2robot on July 16, 2022 at 11:03 pm

    i use 3 in 1 oil all the time.. the problem with it is the smell. I’m not a fan of the smell and it seems to linger forever.

  8. Josh Candela on July 16, 2022 at 11:03 pm

    I can’t find a big enough bowl to put my chevy truck in …I think I need to soak in river permanently 🤔

  9. Lupe Matz on July 16, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    Love this video and the way you deliver the message. Thank you!

  10. TERRYBIGGENDEN on July 16, 2022 at 11:06 pm

    This is excellent—the best I’ve seen. Thanks! 🙂

  11. moxee33 on July 16, 2022 at 11:06 pm

    Argh! I am watching BECAUSE someone suggested steel wool which I later read in tbe Corona pruners manual CAUSES RUST. DON’T USE IT.😱

  12. yanira cantu on July 16, 2022 at 11:07 pm

    So after using baking soda do rinse of with water or then dry and oil it?

  13. barb maki on July 16, 2022 at 11:07 pm

    I’m bad in the winter yickes

  14. BunstanMcFunkstan on July 16, 2022 at 11:07 pm

  15. DerekJason3000 on July 16, 2022 at 11:08 pm

  16. Robin Brennan on July 16, 2022 at 11:08 pm

    Thanks!

  17. Tiffcat on July 16, 2022 at 11:09 pm

    💖😊💖

  18. Chain Impact on July 16, 2022 at 11:12 pm

    what is the point of the salt?

  19. XxMalaboo on July 16, 2022 at 11:12 pm

    Whenever I use the vinegar method; it takes the rust off then when it dries the rust comes back like a day later. What am I doing wrong?

  20. ISSA ABDAL on July 16, 2022 at 11:15 pm

    What happens if you don’t dilute the concentrated vinegar???

    BTW…. 𝐒𝐚𝐧 𝐃𝐢𝐞𝐠𝐨 𝐚𝐥𝐥 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐰𝐚𝐲 𝐛𝐚𝐛𝐲!!!!!!!!!

  21. Kevin Darcy on July 16, 2022 at 11:15 pm

    You’re going to teach me how to protect them?? I think I’ll pass on that part 🤔🤔🤔🤔
    Only joking – irish humour😛 😂😂😂😂 thanks ✌️

  22. Jt Rose on July 16, 2022 at 11:16 pm

    ive been using sand paper then cleaning and using spray oil from the kitchen…it doesnt keep them rust free. i would not use wd40 or a toxic lubricant, i dont want it touching my organic veggies

  23. Dustin Goffron on July 16, 2022 at 11:16 pm

    how does 3 in 1 oil differ than WD40?

  24. Richard L on July 16, 2022 at 11:18 pm

    Still waiting for the "easiest way…………………………….

  25. Alia's Garden on July 16, 2022 at 11:21 pm

    Perfect

  26. DerekJason3000 on July 16, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    You can scrub with aluminum foil and water or cleaner.

  27. Ed Reiss on July 16, 2022 at 11:23 pm

    Why the hell would I use salt. Salt causes corrosion.

  28. Sandra Parisi on July 16, 2022 at 11:24 pm

    Great! My ADD came to the party and I added Baking soda INSTEAD OF THE SALT!

  29. Epic Gardening on July 16, 2022 at 11:28 pm

    Be honest, you leave your garden tools out too, right? 🙂

  30. PsycheBlood on July 16, 2022 at 11:29 pm

    I thought my garden tools were absolutely ruined last season. They are like new now!

  31. Melissa Blanchard on July 16, 2022 at 11:30 pm

    You can just use vinegar, soak overnight, use an old toothbrush to scrub away anything left. Once clean, rinse in warm water, dry completely and oil.

  32. Loren LASH on July 16, 2022 at 11:32 pm

    Fabulous. I’m elated that you have links for these tools. I’ve been pulling my hair out trying to find a sustainable pair of hand clippers. Sheesh, we make things so poorly now! Many thanks!

  33. DarK Toad One on July 16, 2022 at 11:32 pm

    Where did you find 30% vinegar?

  34. Al Johnson on July 16, 2022 at 11:32 pm

    What containers, glass, plastic, etc. should you use?

  35. Kelly Slater on July 16, 2022 at 11:33 pm

    Bartenders friend is probably easier

  36. lee walker on July 16, 2022 at 11:37 pm

    Far too much talking.. US Demos. Always are.lost interest

  37. Brian Mondragon on July 16, 2022 at 11:39 pm

    Awesome

  38. TheSkyflame on July 16, 2022 at 11:41 pm

    Thanks a lot , i tried vinegar-salt method but also added pinch of baking soda to it and left it and it worked on my gardening pruners .

  39. 0cch10 on July 16, 2022 at 11:41 pm

    I’m testing your salt vinegar method as we speak, found some great garden tools for €2,50 … I hope with a little TLC it will be great again, thanks for spreading info like this ! (I hope 😉)

  40. Michele LaCagnina on July 16, 2022 at 11:43 pm

    Fantastic video. Can I use WD-40 to lubricate and protect the pruners?

  41. Harley Johnson on July 16, 2022 at 11:43 pm

    Quick maths if you need it: 16:1 is 1 cup to 1 Tbsp !

  42. imasurvivornthriver on July 16, 2022 at 11:44 pm

    This is great! Thanks for sharing.

  43. J on July 16, 2022 at 11:52 pm

    Obviously…by video evidence…you still do not take proper care of your tools. You should be ashamed…it is a very poor workman who would treat his tools so carelessly.

  44. Soknik01 on July 16, 2022 at 11:54 pm

    You can unscrew the handles from the spring by rotating them in a counterclockwise direction.

  45. Melanie on July 16, 2022 at 11:54 pm

    What grades of steel wool are you using there? ‘recommendations?

  46. Chef Boy Ramen on July 16, 2022 at 11:55 pm

    Great video!!! Got right to the point and detailed as possible too

  47. lisa waters on July 16, 2022 at 11:56 pm

    Good info.

  48. JACK FROSTY on July 16, 2022 at 11:56 pm

    sharpen your shovel every spring. Best snake killer.

  49. Sheila Gay on July 16, 2022 at 11:56 pm
