DO NOT LET THESE OLD BOYS FOOL WITH A CHAINSAW BLADE. Brought four chainsaw blades to these folks to sharpen for me. I mentioned to them that the last time I had used them they had lost their edge within a couple of minutes each. When I came back to pick them up this time, I understood why very quickly. Most of the teeth had been ground to the point where the steel had turned dark blue when they had cooled down and the cutting edges were rolled over to where there was a large and obvious burr all along the cutting edges. I wasn't angry but I was concerned. I asked the fellow to take a look. He leaned against the shelf and lazily ran his thumb over it like he could care less and tells me he'll have to have the chainsaw sharpening expert take a look. Another older gentleman shows up and looks at the blades real quick and tells me it's the nature of their machine to turn out a blade like this. I told him that in that case he ought to think about warning folks before committing to accept the job. However, this Ace Hardware Chainsaw Sharpening Expert stood there and actually proceeded to tell me that badly overheated, severely burred, dull chain saw blades were perfectly normal. Do yourself a favor, take your business somewhere that will appreciate your business, treat you like they give a darn that you showed up and express a teeny bit of regret and responsibly when they've just sold you something that a twelve year old girl would know is bad.

Once again Ace has come thru for us. With yet another pending storm, we went in search of a snow shovel and deicer. All the big box stores were sold out, but our favorite local store had exactly what we were looking for. When I am looking for something specific, this is inevitably the place I find it. They go out of their way to be helpful, and service is always with a smile. Thanks again!
