Does anyone have any recommendations for a good blade sharpeing
service. The only local place I've found sends their blades out
anyway, so I'd just a soon mail it out, that would actually make it
easier on me.
And they'll sharpen anything. Even a Soopasuck Lameblade.
Haven't used them, just regurgitating ambient knowledge. People say stuff
comes back almost as good as a big dollar Forrest blade, and they're
extremely reasonable about everything. I plan to send all my blades in
that direction One Of These Days(tm).

Well the job was not a bad one, it just did not compare to the new Forrest
blade that I had just bought. So I sent the older Forrest back to Forrest.
Also, Forrest will retrue the blade. My local service does not do this.
But I agree, like a PC, the information going in determines the quality of
the information coming out.
Had an interesting experience back when I used to do receiving
inspection *COUGHS* years ago.
We had two machined parts come in from two different vendors.
From vendor A, some parts were PERFECT. Some parts were a bit off. All
were within tolerence. Pretty good for a run of a thousand pieces.
Vendor B, the first piece was .003 short in the longest dimension, with
similar shortfalls in all the other dimensions.
So was the second piece, the third . . .
Within the tolerence I could measure, all the pieces were identical.
Wow... you've compacted paragraphs into that sentence... well done!
Over the years, I've found myself giving folks advice, some very
technical, on stuff i've never done... mostly on trucks so far, as
I've been in those NGs the longest...
It's like you become a walking FAQ by reading so many posts on the
different subjects.. *g*
Please remove splinters before emailing
I've found that any blade or cutter I've sent to a good sharpening
shop, including jointer and planer knives, seem to come back better
The only exception is my Forrest stuff. They seem to come sharpened
better than many others.
