Topic tags/keywords: sharpen blades

Does anyone know a good source to sharpen Planer and Jointer blades? I would prefer to just drop them in the mail with a Visa number and have them mailed back.

I asked woodworking author Nick Engler the same question. He recommended;

Shupert & Son Sharpening Service
99 Avondale Dr.
Dayton OH 45404

I don’t think they have a web site.

Check with your local Woodcraft store sometimes they will sharpen for a price.

Some of us may just be doing the sharpening for the local Woodcrafts. :)

when I was 17 I sharpened a set of fairly long planer blades while I was in machine shop using a surface grinder. ask a local machine shop if they can do it for labor. I too have some dull as heck Jointer blades that need sharpened too, thanks for the listed advice.

Forrest is a another source for sharpening planer lblades and router bits. I have never used them for this service but do send all my saw blades to them for sharpening.

Many local hardware stores will send blades out to a local
machine shop and have them brought back to the store.

I do it myself with a wet grinder and jig and that way I
don’t need a “spare” set. I just sharpen and put the tool
back to use. This approach pays for itself in a couple of years
because the grinder isn’t super cheap but there is basically
no cost to have sharp blades at all times.

Have your say...
