Learned it hard way that cost of new blades is almost equal to cost of sharpening it . HD may be a good place to start looking for new blades.

I'm not to sure if I do it properly but I just use my Mastercraft grinder and sharpen them, I sharpen a set of mulching blades and regular blades every year and they get super sharp .

Yup, if you want to sharpen, DIY is the cheapest way. If you don't have a grinder, even a decent metal file will give you a sharp edge.

Your sharpening job does not need to be super straight. It's ok if the edge comes out a bit wavy. It just needs to be sharp.

If you do sharpen the blades yourself, just remember that it only needs to be butter knife sharp (typically that's how they come out of the box). I'm going to do mine in the next week or so. I thought about buying a replacement blade but the brand of my mower (Homelite) doesn't seem to exist in Canada anymore and I can't find a local supplier of the replacement blade.
