Hi all -- Last year I got a site from this forum that offered a mail-order blade sharpening service. You printed a form from the site, dropped your blades in the mail and paid for return shipping. I 'wisely' saved the site in my local club's forum, which they have discontinued, so I have lost it.
I've been using this place for over 20 years now and they are great. When I lived closer, I used to take my blades to them but now I just ship them for sharpening and they send them back very quickly. They've also done some minor clipper repairs for me and I think their prices are pretty reasonable.
The prices are right! I have not been able to get our blades sharpened forever. Last time 2 times I sent them out, they came back pretty dull... so I finally gave up and just buy new blades. So I have a LOT that need to be sharpened, and this will save me a ton!
I was very happy with the workmanship and the turnaround time.
I think on their site they say they try to have blades leave the store within 24 hours of arrival....can't quite remember, but it was about a week from "departure" to "receipt".
and honestly the reduction of the "hassle factor" by using the postage-paid label- HUGE!!!! It takes me forever to make it to a PO during business hours....
Thanks. I got the info printed off. Just need to purchase one of those "bubble wrap" envelopes and send the blades off. Need to clip the dogs again, and the one horse probably could use a touch-up on his body clip. Not that I'm looking forward to either, mind you .
