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.

“I tried the blades after receiving them back and they cut Oak wood like butter compared from what they were before sending them in for your resharpening service. It took me awhile before I found someone reliable as yourself to sharpen this set of Dado Blades as am not a type of person that throws things away. There is no doubt that Family Hardware will get any of my future blades that need blade sharpening service from now on. Your service is first rate and the shipping was a selling point for me.” ~Steve – MI
