We are honest people with honest policies. Here are our four, simple ‘Feel Good’ policies that we hope will make you feel comfortable and confident in doing business with us. Also, please review our shipping policy below. For sending your blades to us for sharpening, see our Shipping Tips page.

Please click on a topic to jump to that section.

Our ‘Feel Good’ Guarantee on Sharpening:
Of course, we would prefer to talk with you and have a chance to diagnose and correct any cutting problem you are experiencing. However, this guarantee isn’t about us, so if you are not fully satisfied with the sharpening of your cold saw blade, we will re-grind it at no charge or refund your sharpening cost, whichever you prefer. Free return shipping included.

Our ‘Feel Good’ Guarantee on New Blades:
Materials and workmanship are guaranteed to perform satisfactorily and as intended, or we will re-sharpen the blade, replace the blade, or refund your money upon return of product. And yes, again, it is whichever you prefer. THIS GUARANTEE DOES NOT COVER BLADE BREAKAGE OR TEETH STRIPPING as these are caused almost exclusively by improper use. Free return shipping included.

If you purchase a new cold saw blade from us and decide you prefer/need a different number of teeth, we offer a one-time no charge service to re-grind it to the number of teeth you request. Customer is responsible for shipping charges both ways on our one-time regrind offer.

Guarantee is good for a period of 45 days from the date you receive your order. Guarantee applies to in-house, in-stock blades only. Special orders, factory orders, non-stock items, and custom orders are non-refundable and non-returnable.

Our ‘Feel Good’ Return/Exchange Policy:
For Blade Sharpening see "Our 'Feel Good' Guarantee on Sharpening:" above.
For New Blades see "Our 'Feel Good' Guarantee on New Blades:" above.

Any other stock products can be returned for exchange, credit, or refund if unopened, unused and in new, clean, sellable condition for a period of 30 days from the date of purchase. Special orders, non-stock items and clearance items are either non-returnable or will incur a restock fee, depending on the product. Customer is responsible for shipping charges both ways.
