If the blade turns while you're trying to get it off, you will probably hit the compression stroke of the engine sooner or later. When that happens, the blade will probably swing back faster than you can pull your hand back.

full file set from Sears, $35

can find it elsewhere for cheaper i'm sure

That's so oldschool though. I don't think the mower has a fancy tempered blade or anything that can actually be hurt by a little grinder heat. It's some stamped chunk of ching chong tin

My folks mower uses a huge metal disk with four small blades attached at its circumference. I can unbolt the disk but it drops down only about an inch and cant seem to be removes. I cant unbolt the four blades either since I need to get to the nut at the back of the metal disk which I cant. My dad does manage to sharpen the blades though.

Best damn simple mower on the planet if you ask me. Been running for 15 year and its cast Iron and heavy as hell

Yep its a Hayterette by Hayter, a British mower company.
I could have nearly sworn to have seen a Troy Bilt with a similar cutting disk setup. Could be wrong though.

My neighbours have changed about 5 mowers in the 15 years we had this one due to mainly their bases rotting since it was made of some thin iron. Pushing that thing up the hills is a work out.

Edit:// Not self propelled

Not really, because unless it also self steers you're still going to be muscling it around. Especially sucks around hilly sections...

So aluminum would be best, or some kind of galvanized ching ching tin.

In southern cali mowers don't really seem to rust, maybe the stuck grass dries up too quickly after?
