Blade Services

Blade Sharpening Service

Wood-Mizer Alaska’s ReSharp Service lets you spend your time sawing, not sharpening blades. Return your blades to one of our location and we will inspect and service your blades for as little as $12/blade.

We try to sharpen every Wood-Mizer blade that comes in our door, however many things can happen to a blade as it goes through a log. Sometimes a blade is damaged and we are not able to sharpen it. We call these blades “rejects.”

Blades submitted to our re-sharp service are subject to inspection and acceptance.  Blades which have been submitted to our service which do not meet the criteria for successful re-sharpening may be discarded, or, at our discretion, replaced.

When a blade is no longer able to be sharpened, we will automatically replace the rejected blade with a new blade of the same type and will invoice you for the replacement blade along with the re-sharpened blades.

Most of our customers get 4-6 sharpenings from every blade.  This dramatically lowers the cost of operating.  Most blades can be mailed to almost anywhere in Alaska for about $25.Keep your box and ‘C’ clips.  Call me and I will email you a label.  Simply place it on the outside and drop it off a the Post Office.  In a few days your blades will be returned to you – razor sharp, properly re-set and ready to make boards.

Below you will see some interesting blade photos.  A short caption describes the condition of the blade.
