Default Sharpining Blades?

Does anyone know where I can get some blades sharpened, somewhere in Northern Colorado?

I just buy new ones, they are cheap and work better then sharpened ones.

same, same, just buy new ones , unless they are chipper blades on a power auger, then you could touch them up with a file.

Not in northern colorado. In c-springs the only good place i know is tonys saw shop on el paso just 3-4 blocks south of fillmore. only $4-$5 and they do a great job. I use a chipper blade, sharpen it 1 time a year and it eats nicely all year. I dont trust my sharpining skills and new blades around $25. Sharpining works fine for me.... But dont use the kits u can get from the store they suck!!!!! make sure a shop does it.

I've got a Strikemaster Auger and they have a replacement program. You send in your old blades and they send you back a sharpened set. They have a pretty fast turn time since as soon as they get yours, they shoot off a sharp set to you. In the past, I've always gotten brand new blades back. I keep an extra set, so I can send one off and still have blades to use until the other set comes back.

I got a $6.00 blade sharpener by Lazer at Sportsman's Warehouse. It's one of those sharpeners like you use on kitchen knives that has a carbide V that you run down the blade, but it has only one cutting blade that scrapes the bevel while the other part of the V runs along the bottom edge of the blade as a guide. Looks like it works, but I'd rather not use it on my blades until I see if it has worked for other people first. Has anyone used these before?

jiffy has the same kind of thing, i bent 2 sets of blades on my stealth last year and they replaced both sets, so i bought an extra set just in case. they were fairly expensive(about $70) for the whole blade kit. them rocks under the snow just don't auger real well.

How does this work? I went on thier website and I couldn't find any info. I have a strikemaster and it needs some new blades.

Hatch,
Go to their site and look under products. Then click on blade exchange. Most of the blades are $12.95 plus $3.00 shipping and handling. Just sent a pair in on Sat for a mora that I got off of e-bay. The exchange will cost more than the auger.

Thanks for the tip Mojo. In the Bass Pro ad they have my same hand auger for twenty bucks. I think I might just buy a new one.
