Tool sharpening business completing first year in Durham

J&B Sharpening Service, 812 Lawrence Ave. in Durham, offers a wide range of services to accommodate the needs of businesses and individuals.

Jim Fleishell, owner and operator, has been in the business for about one year, and helps customers with metal, wood, and other hand tool sharpening.

His sharpens small tools such as scissors, pruning shears and cutlery to boring holes or making wooden frames used to outline spas and more.

Fleishell said he has been in the sharpening business since 1991.

Since that time, he has continued expanding his knowledge of the trade by apprenticing with someone who taught him a broader scope of sharpening techniques.

Working with hand tools that are dull can be a frustrating experience, and Fleishell understands the importance of making sure his customers have good equipment.

He has worked with many local industries and restaurants in Hutchinson, McPherson, Wichita, Hesston, Hillsboro and other surrounding areas.

?I offer free pickup and delivery within those areas,? he said, ?but we are also open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.?

For more information, call him at 620-877-0329 or stop by the shop.
