There's always a hardware store around, but never more than 1, that knows how to do it. Local hardware store that does everything else does *not* know how to do it (even worse, they think they do but they're wrong) so I'm on my own now. It's pretty simple really, just use grinding paste to sharpen both the reel and the bar it rubs against. Tricky part is optional and you disassemble the rotor to reverse the gearing so that you can push it around and have the rotor run backwards to sharpen itself. You could spin it manually backward though.
