One of the fun things about this business is watching all the innovation that takes place. I've seen many a sharpener create some pretty cool tools that help them do their job better and faster. This past week, I had the chance to play with a new tool that fits this bill, Sharp Edges' new Clipper Blade Test Scale.
This new tool will allow you to test the number of pounds per square inch it takes to move the cutter on a clipper blade. Why is this important? If the tension on the cutter is too week, the blade won't cut. If the tension is too tight, the blade will wear faster, overheat, and run the clipper too hard.
As sharpeners, many of us use small cooking or postal weight scales to test the poundage on clipper blades. Sharp Edges' new tool will change that though. Take a look at how this nifty tool works in the video below. During the video I mention that there's a 10% discount offered on this product until the end of February 2010. You have to mention that you saw the Blade Scale on Jim Sharp to get the discount though! So be sure to tell them you saw this here! Sharp Edges number is 217-422-0911. Let me know what you think.
