M-F 9:30AM until 6PM
NOTE: ALL PRICES ARE GOING UP BY HUGE AMOUNTS ON JAN 1, 2012
YOU HAVE ONE YEAR TO CRY, MOAN, COMPLAIN AND OPEN YOUR OWN SHARPENING SHOP.
GOOD CUSTOMERS WHO DO GREAT VOLUMES ARE NOT AFFECTED. 
 
Mower blades - $2 off the mower, $3 on the mower. 
Saw chain on the saw - $5 
Saw chain off the saw - $3
Note: Saw chains must come off the saw because they have to go on to a machine in order to be sharpened.

Hedge shears - $3
Gas or electric Power hedge trimmers - $10
Carbide circular saws - $.20 per tooth - simple alternate top bevel (Most saws)
Carbide circular saws - $.30 per tooth - triple chip or other advanced tooth form

Chipper blades - $1 per inch of ground edge
Drill bits - $.50 to $1 for 1/8" to 3/4".

I can do spiral drill bits from .006" up to 3".
Mueller Shell Cutter Re-toothing

Shell cutters for hot tapping water/gas/steam lines - Why send them (12") off to Mueller to have them rebuilt for $1600 when I will do it for $800? Call me for instructions. 

I NOW STRAIGHTEN DRILL PIPE! Yes - My 10 foot span by 20 ton press is complete. I can straighten horizontal boring pipe of any diameter with up to 8" offset. I will get the bend down to <1/16" for $20 apiece.

A few things I cannot do:
Electric hair clippers - Send entire machine back to the manufacturer or to someone on the net who advertises the ability to sharpen them AND wants to see the entire machine. Many blades are not resparpenable due to surface pitting. Many cutting problems are due to springs, linkages, pivots, clamps, tension, etc.
Spiral tooth forms such as end mills - no plans to handle these.
 
CURRENT DISCRETIONARYPLANS/PRIORITIES:
1- Lathe rebuild
2- Get copper mesh on the market
3- Develop copper casting methods 
4- Develop market for surplus 4" borosilicate tubing
 

I take Visa, MC, Amex, Discover, IOU's. I will bill you. I will take things in trade.

You can drop stuff off in the door slot. I have hiding places you can pick stuff up.
