Blade sharpening.

Postby ratty » Wed Sep 16, 2015 12:01 pm

Has anyone used any of the two Morso blade sharpening services advertised on ebay?
They are items numbers, 190788588304 and 400486876605.

The 50 mile round trip to Brum could work out a bit expensive without needing to pick anything else up.

Just thought I would explore other options and see what the consensus is.

I've used the Mainline service. Quick and good results. not cheap but better than a 100 mile road trip.

Thanks for the replies,

I feel confident to use the Radius service now if I don't fancy a drive up the M6 and then the Aston Expressway! :sweating:
Not the most driver friendly roads in the midlands. :shock: (Not really shocked but what my eyes look like during the drive there.) :lol:

If anyone else has experience with these sharpeners or any other, possibly 'new' ones, feel free to post them and your experiences.

Wessex and Centrado offer a sharpening service and if you have a van delivery there is no carriage cost. Mainline actually have a Morso built sharpener so for my money, even though you have to pay carriage, this is the one to go for.

Radius has always been the best by far for us on morso blade sharpening, unfortunately they don't do enough else for us to use them.
