Disassembly and Lubrication
Mirror Edge sharpening services tries to be a full service sharpening and maintenance service for our customers. Tools of all types require lubrication, and to properly do that, some tools require disassembly and reassembly. This takes time, skill, and patience. Our technicians will take care to ensure your tool is inspected, all sharpening debris is removed from pivot surfaces, and all the parts are lubricated and rust free upon reassembly.
Often times customers are not satisfied with the factory edge angle on the tool. This can take significant labor to accomplish depending on what is being asked for. This service ensures that you receive the angle of choice which will match the tasks required.

The additional cost is for removing the screws, cleaning any debris in the threads, (like rust or metal filings), placing the blue loctite on the screws, and reassembly.
