Where to get guillotine sheer sharpened


#1

Hi All,

So, I noticed my guillotine sheer is starting to bend my metal a bit
when I’m cutting and it seems that it’s high-time I had the blade
sharpened. Where do people have this done? Do you send it back to
the manufacturer? Bring it to a local machine shop? Do it yourself?

Thanks in advance for the advice!

Hi Ben,

So, I noticed my guillotine sheer is starting to bend my metal a
bit when I'm cutting and it seems that it's high-time I had the
blade sharpened. 

If it were me, I’d check with a local machine shop to see if they
had a surface grinder & could do the job. If they don’t do that type
of work, they may know of someone local that does.

Try your local restaurant supply place. They usually sharpen all
types of knives, sewing shears and I’ll bet they will do a good job
with your guillotine shears.

Hello Ben,

With respect to your shear! Don’t know the brand but it sounds like
it is a large one or at least a precise one.

If you are a machinist or of a sort of skills, take the blades, Both
of them, to a good machine shop and have then reshape (Sharpen in our
words) the cutting edge first and then mill the flat of the blade.
Make sure about the tension-pressure of the blades, if they or spring
loaded. If your machinist doesn’t know what you are talking about,
take it to a real machine shop. You will pay but you will have the
most beautiful cuts and very little clean-up, all my boxes have 90
degree angles. Call if you need anything, 210.260.0662, Stephen
