I am an accomplished non-professional furnituremaker. I chose Robinson because they are close to my home shop.
As a trial run, I had them sharpen a set of knives from a DeWalt DW734 planer and an old pre-teflon Freud LM72 10"" rip blade. The results were amazing. The LU72 cuts better than it did when new, producing shavings rather than dust. Haven't tried the planer knives yet because I have a sharp second set still in the machine.
Encouraged by my first visit, I took them a black pre-teflon Freud LU85 10"" crosscut blade, a Forrest Woodworker II 10"" combination blade, and a well-used lawnmower blade. Again, the results blew me away. Several years ago, another sharpening service had ground all the hook out of the Freud crosscut blade, making it very touchy to use. Robinson was able to restore the 10 degree hook without sacrificing too much of each tooth and it cuts like butter once again. I haven't tried the WWII but it looks scary sharp.
They also did a great job on the mower blade, which was pretty beat up and out of balance. They even removed the rust and repainted it. Actually looking forward to trying it out in the spring.
Bottom line: I highly recommend Robinson Saw Services.
