solving your hard problems

For precision grinding, industrial sharpening & hard chroming in Tasmania

With over 30 pieces of specialist equipment, Hobart Hardchrome & Sharpening provide an expert machining service to Tasmanian businesses and industries. Whilst we generally service commercial customers, we welcome enquiries from the general public.

Our tool shop stocks a wide range of standard circular cutting blades, router bits, thicknessers and mobile chipper knives, plus an extended range of more specialised cutting tools and equipment for timber, boat and metal engineering industries.

We are open to both the general public and commercial businesses.


Why choose us

With a large set of in-house capabilities, we aim to provide around 7-day turnaround on most sharpening jobs and two weeks for hardchroming & grinding.  We’ll also do our best to offer prompt support for unexpected breakdowns.

With over 95% of the work completed at our workshop in Kingston, your important parts are close at hand and there’s less risk of expensive time delays.

We also offer a weekly pick-up & delivery service for our regular customers. 

Save time & money, by keeping it in the state and extending the lifespan of your important components with local sharpening, chroming, grinding and machining.

Increase the life of your gear

Custom machining can be an excellent way to avoid the hefty replacement costs of new components or parts. Hardchroming, precision grinding, machining and sharpening can significantly extend the lifespan of your specialist components.

Minimise costly downtimes

As our service is local, flexible and very accommodating, we’re able to minimise any equipment down times (that you might otherwise experience when ordering replacement parts or repairs from mainland Australia or overseas).

A high-quality job, everytime

We understand that quality is essential to your success. With our extensive experience, industry-based knowledge and a range of precision equipment, all of our work is guaranteed to meet or exceed your requirements.

This is What we do

A wide range of local industries and trades people trust us to look after the important parts of their businesses. We are very accommodating, and provide the expert advice and prompt service necessary to minimise your downtimes.

From large industries like mining, forestry and aquaculture, to local joinery shops and tree chipping contractors, and to other specialist machinery that operates in the harsh environments on Antarctica, we’ll solve your hard problems.

We service a wide range of customers - large & small

Whilst we typically service a wide range of small business, commercial and industrial customers, we welcome all enquiries, as we often complete unique projects for individual customers.
