tungsten hassel groover, re-sharpening??


Recommended Posts

I was not aware that Hasall did a tungston Groover!!! new one on me.

I still have one of the 1st ever made, given to me by one of the Hasall brothers when he came to purchase machinery of me. One of the best shoe repair families ever to walk the planet and I owe my enthusiasim to them.

You can of course get a new blde they dont cost the earth, alternatevely ask the local Saw Sharpener.

 

You can as an alternative use shakeproof washers also know as Star washers, these have serrations allaround the edge and are available from Nut & Bolt suppliers, use 1 for a fine groove and up to 3 for a wide groove.

hi hugh,

 

i don't know if it was made by them, i thought it was just a generic name for a groover run on the trimmer.... :-k

 

i'll probably try siserve or standard...

 

used the shakeproof washers about 25 years ago and got fed up with then wearing out every 5 mins so got a tungsten one and now it's worn out....

22 years!!!!! it must be a Standard Tungsten. Although Iwould have thought most wholesalers would have stocked this item!!! (may be wrong, not been around much).

 

well, it's been blunt for the last couple but it's really bad now, we scots like to get value for our money you know... :-{{{

 

i'll speak to standard....

Hi Dude, sorry I saw this late but I was away enjoying myself in Brno (for the GP) :D

 

Give Mick Greasley a call on 01536-486105 and he'll talk you through the options.
