Like the public library... but for tools

Pro Tool Sharpeners to the rescue.

Jesse Bennett and Harmonie Medlin, of Sharpening4U, arrived a little after 10:00am to the backdoor of the Church where SEPTL is located.  They unloaded their tools and tables and brought them into the Library.  In a couple of hours the two of them touched up and sharpened a pair of tin snips (it was cutting paper like a good pair of scissors), a couple of hedge trimmers, and a couple of machetes. They also squared off a couple of screwdrivers, and sharpened three knives from the St. David’s church kitchen.  To top it off they sharpened two of our shovels.

What was a shame is that they were planning on sharpening our push mower, but it had not been returned.  Same thing with a pair of pruning shears.  They too did not get sharpened since they’d not been returned on time. (If tools are not returned on time either the tool loses out by not getting the maintenance it needs, or the next person loses out.)

We are so grateful to Jesse and Harmonie, who can be reached at and (503) 962-0574 should you need some expert sharpening. Please let them know we sent you! They are simply fabulous.
