We Now Sharpen Cold Saw Blades

No matter the brand, size, configuration or tooth count, we can sharpen and repair all cold saw blades. Using the latest technology we can keep your blades running, saving you time from having to purchase new.

Our Process

1 - Receiving YourBlades

Your blades are received in and immediately we begin the process of bringing them back to life. It all starts with a caustic soda bath which loosens and removes debris without damaging the blade.

2 - Polishing & Inspecting

From there it’s off to the polisher where we remove any dirt, rust or other material from the face of the blade. Your blade is then hand inspected for missing/chipped teeth, bent plate, missing posts etc.

3 - Protective Coating &Returning Your Blades

Once ready, your blade goes onto one of our 5 automated CNC grinders. Once done, all of our blades go through our 4 point inspection process before getting their protective coating & sent back to you.

Our 4 Point Inspection Process

Tooth Runout – .004” tolerance

Plate Concentricity – .003” tolerance

Plate Runout – .005” tolerance

Visual Inspection – under Microscope for micro chipping.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does free shipping work?

Very simple! If you send in 5 blades or more, we will give you free shipping both ways! Request a prepaid UPS Shipping label and ship in your blades to us, and we will send them back for free.

What is the best way to send my blades in?

Want to ship blades yourself? The best way to send us your blades we have found is using Priority Flat Rate boxes. 12″ Blades will easily fit into a Priority Mail Medium Flat Rate Box-2. If you need slightly bigger, go with the Large Flat Rate box. The boxes are free at any post office, and you they cost $12.40 and $17.05 respectively and you can ship up to 70lbs! Do not forget to back cardboard between your blades to avoid damaging any teeth in shipment. And remember, if you send in 5 or more blades, we will credit you $15.00 for sending the blades in and ship them back for free!

Don’t forget to download our Order Form before sending in blades.

What equipment do you use to sharpen our blades?

Here are a couple of the machines that go into keeping your blades as sharp as can be.

I don’t want to request a label, what do I do?

Not a problem, if you wish to send in your blades on your own. Simply download our form and send them in! If you send 5 blades or more we will credit you back for the shipping to send them into us.

Can I request a prepaid label when I ship less than 5 blades?

Yes! You absolutely can. We will send you our prepaid label. We charge a flat rate of $15 each way. So the round trip cost would be $30.

Can I combine my shipment with someone else?

Absolutely! If you only have a couple blades to send, and have a friend in the same boat, by all means send them in same box. As long as you get 5 blades, you will qualify for the free shipping. If you wish to be charged separately, please remember to send in two separate order forms.
