Chipper Blade sharpening

Recommended Posts

Sure this has been asked before but cant find it. What's the best place to use for chipper blade sharpening? Seen one that does free collection, what's everyone's experience?

I use Saturn Knives in Sheffield. "Free collection and return" is of course always built into the price.

 

They sharpen them well, price is OK too I feel. Turnaround times variable, so I never leave it to the last moment, and have enough sets of blades.

Cheers. I think that's the crowd I was thinking of. I thought I would get the two sets I have spare sent off, then replace on the machine. I do them every 25 hours as a rule

I used to get a local Ag Engineer to do my GreenMech blades as well as those on my Arboreater.  He did all three machines blades and at a manageable price. Don't give up on the local trader! Take them your local dealer if they are close enough.

I wonder if Windsor Bandsaw still do chipper blades, they used to do mine and not that far south of you.

I’ve always used NLS tools in Waltham cross.
They will pick up and return within a week from London and the Home Counties.
Could probably post to them as well.
Used them for years never had problem, a proper old school place.
Had 8 sets of Timberwolf blades sharpened for about £70 recently.
