Sharpening Carbide Saw Blades for Over 40 Years
Family Hardware has specialized in the sharpening of carbide tipped saw blades for over 40 years. Every day hundreds of customers around the country rely on us to keep their shops running at peak efficiency.
Using methods handed down 3 generations, we use a mix of old skill knowledge, with cutting edge machinery to get the job done right. We are constantly investing in new technology and upgrading our existing equipment to deliver the superior quality that will keep your blades running longer and cutting better.
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.
“The quality of the sharpening was great, they almost cut better than when new. I really like the almost like sanded edge ot the board after running thru the blade. We will definitely be using your services in the future” ~Bruce – NY

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!
