Do I need equipment to sharpen on?

You will need some type of flathone machine for sharpening shears. If you need to purchase a machine, the machine we recommend is the Scimech Flathone You may wait until after the class to decide if you wish to purchase the Scimech, but we need to know if you need us to bring a machine. The Scimech and additional supplies will run approximately $3800.00. However, most people start out in addition with an inventory of shears to sell which is not required.


Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

The tickets are non-refundable but transferrable.


What is the refund policy?

The tickets are non-refundable but transferrable to another person or another time.


Can I bring someone?

Because of limited space we can not include an observer unless there are less than 3 people in the class. If you are purchasing a Scimech HD flathone and the additional person wants hands-on training, the second person is half price.


Will you be teaching clipper blade sharpening?

This class will be on Friday August 31.
