We feel that by focusing on sharpening, repair first we can better serve our customers, providing longer tool life and longer run times.

What We Do

We’ve re-tipped and sharpened all sorts of cutting tools, including hoggers, cutter head bits, and tongue and groove sets. We realize that with so many of these cutting jobs, it is not simply a one and done operation, rather an ongoing process.
