Our staff of experienced specialists can repair and recondition all brands and styles of your precision hand tools. In many cases, you can recondition and refurbish your hand tools at a fraction of the cost of purchasing new hand tools. Let Excelta Reconditioning be your partner!

Our skilled technicians will:

  1. Sharpen dull, chipped and unregistered cutting blades.
  2. Realign and repair joints
  3. Replace worn and/or damaged grips.
  4. Replace broken and/or damaged springs.
  5. Lubricate and buff when applicable.
  6. Upgrade grips and handles to be static dissipative and ESD safe (additional cost).

Your satisfaction is guaranteed up to the full price of the service charged for tool reconditioning. If unsatisfied, we will service the tool again (a maximum of 1 retouch) or credit your account accordingly.

What precision hand tools are repairable?

When in doubt, we recommend that you contact customer service with pictures and a description of the tool conditions. Broken tips, chipped blades, broken handles, and broken joints are all good examples of hand tools that are very difficult to repair, and will most likely be scrapped.

Reconditioning & Repair Details

Reconditioning Process

  • Excelta technicians will attempt to keep the dimensions of points and tips as near to new as possible.
  • Excelta technicians have been trained to hold original manufacturing tolerance standards and specifications. However, technicians may need to modify the tip, jaw length, handle opening, and dimension points due to the nature of tool reconditioning. The amount of modification depends upon the condition of each tool at the time of reconditioning.
  • Excelta reserves the right to determine the viability of reconditioning any tool or group of tools depending on the tool condition on arrival. Tools with broken tips, severely chipped blades, broken handles, and/or broken joints will be automatically rejected from being reconditioned.
  • Excelta technicians reserve the right to attempt reconditioning, repair and maintenance to only tools in which it is determined to be reasonably repairable. Tools with broken tips, severely chipped blades, broken handles, and/or broken joints will be automatically rejected from being reconditioned. Otherwise, the tool will be returned at a charge to the customer.
  • Excelta will make a good faith effort to complete all refurbishing and maintenance on tools within 4 to 6 weeks. However, we reserve the right to extend return shipments beyond 6 weeks based on work load, tool condition, tool volume, and other unforeseen scheduling issues.
