The “Combi” is a flatbed” Swiss made 2301 grinding machine supplied with a choice of discs suitable for the re-sharpening of livestock clipper blades (cattle and horse) and pet blades i.e Snap-on etc.
The “Combi” can be used also to re-sharpen both the larger livestock blades as well as small pet blades (detachable A5 type blades and the screw type narrow blades) For pet blades it is necessary to use a different disc, and to do this you need to purchase the optional Pet blade grinding disc (352mm) code CSM0120. Discs can be interchanged easily. The design of the machine makes grinding both easy and comfortable for both livestock and pet blades using the appropriate discs. Once you have developed the skills required for the sharpening of blades you will find this machine capable of producing professional results. The “Combi” is supplied fully complete – thus enabling you start blade sharpening once unpacked and set up.
Blade sharpening machine discs in keeping with other most makes require a certain pre-preparation before actual blade sharpening commences and this involves either the use of the pastes or grinding powder according to the disc type being used. These items are listed under Combi Grinder Accessories. As with any blade sharpening machine no matter how experienced you may be it is sensible to devote time to practicing with a selection of various blades to enable you get use to the machine and disc. In the course of sharpening blades you may receive many types for sharpening, made from varying qualities of steel, all of which call for a degree of expertise that is only acquired as a result of practical experience gained over a period of time.
Remember to order sufficient grinding paste – you will need both types – fine and course in the application of sharpening. This also applies to the grinding powder if you intend sharping pet blades.
HEINIGER “Combi” Grinder YOU TUBE VIDEO
A You Tube video has been prepared by Heiniger to help users obtain peak performance from their Heiniger “Combi” Grinder machine. It shows the preparation of the disc prior to use and sharpening of livestock blades. (A separate video can be seen for use with the Pet blade disc as used for small animal blades) Unfortunately those contemplating blade sharpening and wishing to make an assessment of what is involved, whilst the video is of excellent quality, the makers have not recognised the importance of a “voice over” text explaining what is being done and the reasons for doing it. Bearing in mind the importance attached to preparing and correctly sharpening blades in our opinion this rather defeats the point of providing what is otherwise a well-focused and well-made video providing instruction.
