This is a sharpening service both the larger comb & cutter type of horse or cattle clipper blade (eg Heiniger type) and the smaller snap-on blades for animal clippers (eg Oster / Liveryman Harmony).
To sharpen the larger blades, we use a precision lapping machine with a 0.178mm convex curviture that uses an aluminium oxide / oil mix to give a very high success rate. You can see how we sharpen them in more detail here and there's a video at the bottom of the page. Snap-on blades are sharpened on a specialist wheel with a very fine abrasive powder and are tested prior to sending back out
Just enter how many blade sets you are to send to us & complete the checkout procedure. One set comprises of the upper cutter and the lower comb.
We will send them back as soon as they are done via 24hr or 48hr carriage depending on the delivery option selected at checkout. Normally 1 or 2 sets will be sent by Royal Mail Signed For but more sets may be sent by courier depending on the weight. We aim to have the blades sharpened and sent back out within a couple of days but this may be longer during busy periods. Please see the 'Current Turnaround' tab for current timescales.
When sending them in, please print off & enclose a copy of your order receipt or Paypal receipt that will be emailed to you just after the checkout proceedure has been completed. If you don't have a printer then just enclose a note of who you are, your order number and the date of purchasing the service and we can print your order off here. This just lets us know who you are and that the blades sent in match the blades paid for.
Please package the blades up well so they won't slide around in the envelope. A lot of people use the order conformation form as the padding which is fine. A good rule of thumb is to think "if the Post Office dropped this onto a concrete floor from 3ft, would the teeth have enough protection?"
We always advise sending the blades by recorded delivery as we cannot be responsible for items lost in the post.
