I live in the Albany, NY area and I’m looking for someone to sharpen my planer and jointer blades. Any recommendations? I’m not adverse to sending them away so if you’ve had good experience with someone outside my area I’d like to hear from you also. Thanks beforehand for any help.

Sometimes I just wonder why people don’t know how to use Google.

It really is that easy…

and less than a couple of seconds…

Joe, I use Forrest for all of my sharpening needs. They are located in Clifton, New Jersey and it is just a matter of dropping my blades or knives in the mail. It takes them about two weeks to get them back to me.

I’ve had good luck with these guys.
They are just south of Albany. Worth at least one drive down. They also carry (and make I believe) chip carving tools and carry a line of woodworking tools. They have two locations, one for the chef and one for the woodworker, make sure you call to get directions to the correct one.
Good Luck.

Scott – Thanks for the tip… I had not known that Forrest was a choice for planer blades, I have used then for sawblades before.
Your link made me double check… sure enough!

Google isn’t always the best, that while it will list many resources, I don’t blame Joe for asking who people have experienced that do a really good job, not just who has sharpening popping up as a search term for their business.
