Sharpening and Repairs
We at Coastal Sharpening, use a top of the range Automatic Sharpening Machine, with a large alloy honing disk.
The snap on blades used by Wahl, Oster, Laube, Andis, etc. are all hollow ground at the factory, and require a machine that will 'hollow grind' to be re-sharpened satisfactorily. To allow hollow grind clipper blades requires a specialised, single use machine. In other words, this machine will only do one job, and that is to sharpen clipper blades.
The machine used in our shop is the same type of machine as used in the factory,[ it has a 18 inch diameter honing disc ] and will produce a precision hollow grind each sharpen. Also, our machine sharpens both cutter and blade at the same time, which matches them together.
After sharpening the blades, we polish them by using a very fine polishing powder. When blades have been sharpened, we retension the springs if needed, check blade guides, and set blades to the clipper. We then 'run in' the blades, and test them before they are returned.
We sharpen only Oster - Wahl - Laube- Andis- Thrive - Lister - Heiniger Blades :

We sharpen our grooming scissors on the Twice as Sharp scissor sharpener. All our scissors are honed after sharpening, reset (correct blade curvature), balanced (tension etc), then set so the points match.
We are warranty agents for Wahl - remember, it is not always the blade at fault, it may be the clippers themselves.
We repair Wahl and Oster clippers only.
If Wahl clippers are under warranty, please send warranty card with receipt plus return postage. Warranties do not cover levers or misuse.
For clippers that are not under warranty send us the clipper and we will get in contact with you and let you know the cost of the repairs.
