Technical Tips to help you get the most out of your Blackmore Equipment.
Tech Tips Menu

This section allows you to get information 24/7 about parts and attachments for your Blackmore equipment, and how to trouble shoot and service the equipment. Just click on the type of machine for which you need help then scroll down the list for that machine to find the item. We’ve tried to include everything you might need to know, but please contact us if you come across something we’ve forgotten.

In some cases as noted, parts are available from W.W. Grainger via or in Canada via so you can order directly or pick up at your local store to have parts quicker and avoid shipping costs.

If you have a Blackmore account you can contact us to use the form to order the parts online. If you don't have an account you must either call or provide a credit card number and expiration date with your email. Please include your phone number too. We do our very best to ship parts the same day for orders received by 3:30 Eastern Time, and can get parts out FedEx later than that, but you better be using Blackmore trays!

Sorry we do not list prices. Call or email if you need to know before ordering.
