Needed Chronomat blade Holders

Discussion in 'Commercial Posts, For Sale of Framing Shop Stuff a' started by Kidgreen, Sep 7, 2018.

    Hi all, I have been using my Chronomat for many years now and love it!! My problem is the blade holders have gotten weak and are now hooking and dropping the blades in midcut.

    Does anyone have a resource for new old stock? I have ordered from Logan but they are even worse for holding onto the blade. Guess they do not make magnets like they used to.

    Any help is treasured.

    Thanks,
    Ken

    Is it just the magnet that is your issue Ken? You could possibly try replacing them yourself if you're much of a DIYer with something like this. If the holder has metal worn away in certain areas, you can try a local welder. Those who work for the tool and die trade in particular as they are accustomed to different types of metals with very strict tolerances involved.

    Hope this helps as your post isn't too dated yet. =)

    I recommend that you contact Logan. Logan's Graphic 850 Platinum Edge is the same as Chronomat because Logan bought the Chronomat design when they went out of business.
