Josh,
One must disasemble the nippers and reforge them as new. There is a bit less material when done, and the angle and distance of the blades is a fraction of a hair different in relation to the pin.
I once thought I could take a worn pair of GEs and turn them into a half round set. They got very ulgly fast and sat on a shelf for ten years. Joe Lopez said he might be able to fix them and now I have a beautyful set of half rounds.
I bet I can shoe better than Joe, but I'll never rebuild tools beter than him or his family. I swear that the GE nippers come back from him better than new.
Don't try it at home,
Bill

I have rebuilt my own, but only after attending a mini course (demo) by Bob? Garner of GE. It's fun to have done it, but now that I've shown that I can, I send them into Joe. He's better at it.

By the way Bob said at the demo that every time he gives a demo, he soon recieves a number of unrepairable attempts and makes several sales of new nippers.

The best things about the good old days -- I wasn't good and I wasn't old.

The older I get, the more horses I shoe, the fewer things that I can absolutely, positively fix.

Every time I send in my GEs for rebuilding I think about raising my shoeing prices higher. One time I did the bean counter thing and actually figured out how much it cost me to trim a horse - including the cost of replacing my truck every 5 years - it came out to about $12.00 per horse. Since the cost of fule went up and I built a more expensive shoeing rig It is probably now up to about $15.00 per horse. I think it probably costs me about $50.00 per horse to put on 4 shoes.

When I think about how much time I would have to invest in learning to rebuild nippers to match the quality I get from GE . . . it's a bargain!

I just got a new catalog from NC tool. Inside the front page there is an ad for nipper rebuilds for $45.00 plus $8.00 return shipping. So If you spend $8.00 to send your nippers there . . . 8 + 45 + 8 = 61 . . . I can drop my GEs off at the farrier supply and get them back good as new in a month for $70.00. I usually get 3 rebuilds a year. For the $27.00 savings, I don't think it's worth giving somebody else a shot at my rebuild business. If I lived close to NC tool and was shopping there on a regular basis, I might try their service because I wouldn't have to pay the shipping.

Here's the deal. I'm trying to keep it simple.

Tbloomer,
HOw on earth are you needing 3 rebuilds a year? You cutting bricks?

I have tuned some up but never tried to rebuild them. Im with Tbloomer its worth it to me to send them off.

You can rebuild and customize your nippers, if you want to spend the time, with some basic tools. First, grind or file the blades back so they are square and notch free and refile the bevel. Now there is a gap. Next, place a small C-clamp on the flat spot behind the rivet to hold the handles tight together. Using another C-clamp across the jaws, heat both sides with a torch and squeeze the jaws back together. The blades will now be pitched inward. Using a piece of round stock that barely fits inside the jaw and a C-clamp, heat one jaw and tighten the clamp so that the round stock lifts the blade back to flat. You can also lift it further to pitch it outward on an older nipper and make a great tool to dig out thick hard soles and bars, that makes trimming overgrown feet easy. Do the same to the opposite jaw so the the blades are even. Fine tune the edges with a file. If necessary heat the handles behind the other C-clamp and adjust them. Take clamps off, heat both blades evenly and carefully about a half inch back from the edges to a dull orange and quench in used motor oil or other suitable quench, not water. Carefully reheat jaws from the outside and temper the edges to just beyond straw and quench. Try it and let me know how you do

Since the majority of the horses I work on are barefoot, my nippers take a beating from the dirt and grit imbedded in the hoof. I have a buddy that shoes race horses. His nippers last a lot longer, 'cuz he doesn't have many barefoot trims.

That surprised me too Tom. I've been using my 14" GE's for 2 and a half years now and just now I start thinking about getting set out of the drawer and send the others in for a rebuild.
