Topic tags/keywords: sharpening

I have several Festool 8 inch circular saw blades that need sharpening. I have the Festool TS-75 saw. I need to find a good company that specializes in mail order sharpening service.

I use a local company, American Sharpening Services. It is my understanding that they do a lot of mail order. Sharpens about anything, saw blades, router bits, plane irons, lawn mower blades, you name it.

I was in there last week, and I think they might be closed tomorrow (12/31).

Dynamic Saw, Ridge Carbide and Forrest all offer sharpening services for all blades, regardless of the manufacturer. All have great reputations, but I have never used any of them.

The place I use for my saw blades is the local TrueValue, and they used to have a web page describing their sharpening service, but they seem to have just updated their web page and don’t have that content any more. It’s a shame since they are really good, and I think they used to do mail order sharpening.

Hi Mark;

I always send stuff to Forrest. They do a great job.

I don’t know about sending them out to be sharpened. Around here I know of at least 2 Hardware stores where you can leave your blades and a local man will pick them up, sharpen them and return them the next week. It is all done local and you don’t have shipping charges. I have been very satisfied with the work for many years. I found the same service when I lived in another town years ago.
Ask at your local Hardware store if they know someone in the area, you may be surprised.
