Our clipper blade sharpening and clipper repair process:
At Coastal Sharpening we use a top-of-the-range automatic sharpening machine, with a large alloy honing disk. The snap on blades used by Wahl, Oster, Laube, Andis, etc are all ‘hollow ground’ at the factory, and require a machine that will hollow grind to be re-sharpened satisfactorily. Sharpening hollow grind clipper blades requires a specialised, single use machine. In other words, this machine will only do one job, and that is to sharpen clipper blades.
The machine used in our shop is the same type of machine as used in a factory. It has an 18 inch diameter honing disc and will produce a precision hollow grind each sharpen. Also, our machine sharpens both cutter and blade at the same time, which matches them together.
After sharpening the blades, we polish them by using a very fine polishing powder. When blades have been sharpened, we retension the springs if needed, check blade guides, and set the blades to the clipper. We then ‘run in’ the blades, and test them before they are returned.
It may not always be the blade at fault, if the blades are “Tracking”” leaving lines, it may be that the clipper has worn parts and need to be serviced.
We sharpen and repair Oster, Wahl, Laube, Andis, Thrive, Lister and Heiniger brand clippers. We also sharpen ceramic blades.
