Hello and happy new year. Wow – our first post of the new year. Iit’s kind of neat that our (Terry & Vickie) retirement extra-income business of sharpeing is beginning its second year. We have been sharpening tools, knives and scissors for years but that was more as a hobby. Now, it is more than that.
This will be a quick post that has two purposes:
(1)… We want to remind you that we provide sharpening services for Baldwin County Alabama. In fact, our estimate is that thirty to forty percent of our business is from Baldwin County folks. To save you drive time and mileage, call to make arrangements and we will meet you in downtown Mobile Alabama, just west of the tunnel on Governement Street. Most of the time we meet our customers at the intersection of Jackson Street and Government Street, right beside Government Street Presbyterian Church located at 300 Government Street in Mobile, AL 36602. Here’s a map:
(2)… Our prices for circular saw blade sharpening is $3.50 plus 25¢ per tooth. We remind you of that here in this post to make you aware that although our fee is low, it can really add up when you bring us a stack of blades like our most recent customer from Baldwin County did. There were twelve blades in this stack that included three eighty-tooth blades. Each eighty-tooth blade is $3.50 + $20.00 = $23.50. Of course this customer had been bringing us blades for years and it is not unusual to receive twenty or more for sharpening. This customer wisely maintains a large inventory of blades and brings a pile when it is convenient. Also, he is in no rush to get them back. We like that. Standing over our workbench is hard on the back at times.
Okay. There you have it. We are back from our Christmastime visits with the kids and grandkids and we’re hanging around the house doing a bit of sharpening. We’re ready for your sharpening needs and guarantee satisfaction. Give us a call at 251-583-5955 (Terry’s cell phone).
