Sharpening services for router bits

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all, 

 

I have a router bit that I think I bought from Jasada. They are now out of business. It his a rail and stile bit combined. I put it in my table last night and tried to put some Hickory trough it and it needs to be sharpened. It is a carbide bit and I would like to send it out to be sharpened. This would be the first time that I have sent out a bit and I was wondering if someone would be able to steer me towards a quality shop? 

 

Best regards, 

 

Ron

Before you send the bits off, I would follow Stick's advise and clean and "touch up the bits" yourself. I generally find, that, resin and pitch builds up (even if you can't easily see it) and a couple of swipes on a diamond card does wonders. Clean the bits first, hit them with a diamond card, and if they still need sharpened send them off.

I sent two saw blades and two router bits to the link below and they did a good job. I found out they send the router bits out to have them sharpened.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
