Please don't; I'll try you out next time I need a set sharpening.😊

Same amount of grinding as a CS100 blade then. Front angle, back angle, reversible blades x2. 

Doesn't really take much longer to grind a pair than a single as they go side by side anyhow. 30 mins work 🙂

Might stick my prices up 🤔

😧 No please don't do that!  Do you also sell spares blades for JB M300 by any chance?

Global Recycling at £190 ex VAT (I'm private so have to pay the VAT) - 

WWW.GLOBALRECYCLING.EU

Jo Beau M300 replacement knives

 

or Northern Arb at £140 ex VAT  - 

WWW.NORTHERNARBSUPPLIES.CO.UK

Browse and shop Rotatech Chipper Blades To Fit Jo Beau M300. Genuine Rotatech Jo Beau type blades.

 

£60 (inc VAT) price difference between the two.

£190?!   Jeez they've gone up; I bought a set a couple of years ago @£120.

 

I still wouldn't put a £60 set of blades in my machine though.  Yes they're £130 cheaper but that £130 would easily pay for itself in saved breakage/sharpening/downtime costs.

 

I'll stick with the real deal thanks.

I'm not sure where you get a £60 set of blades from?  That's the price difference, not the price.  I'm sure if the Northern Arb blades were no good there'd be lots of feedback on here - and there isn't (from what I've found - or not found as the case may be).

N.A.S GreenMech disc blades are noticeably softer and don't last as long as the real thing. That isn't a sales pitch, that is a fact and most customers who have used them will back up this statement.

Didn't read it properly - my bad.

 

I approach the matter differently to you:  I see the price difference as only £60, not a huge one.

 

I'm still sticking with the real thing.  Not to say the others are poor - I don't know - but I'm quite happy to pay for mine knowing they're at least as good as any others and manufacturer recommended.

Best to maintain a chain of responsibilities IMO.
