We can fully repair any weapon and most equipment at NIFC, please contact Bob Skurka or show up at the Club on Monday or Wednesday evening during normal fencing hours.  We maintain not only the Northwest Indiana Fencing Club weapons, personal weapons for our members but we also do many of the repairs for the Lowell H.S. Red Devils Fencing Club, the Marian Catholic H.S. Fencing Team, the Tinley Park Fencing Club and the Homewood-Flossmoor H.S. Fencing Team.

We typically keep a supply of most common blades for Saber, Epee and Foil in stock.  Rewiring Foil and Epee blades, as well as replacing or repairing Foil and Epee points.  Body and Mask cord repairs are also offered.  We also repair some fencing club equipment including floor reels and cords.

We are an all volunteer club and our armory services are provided by skilled volunteers.  You will be charged for parts and repairs are done on a first come, first served basis.  We don't charge for our normal repair services other than the cost of the replacement parts required; if something is well beyond our normal service there may be a modest fee above the cost of parts.
