Does anyone know a good saw doctor to sharpen my dovetail saws? I am sure location is not a problem as I could post them - the important thing is that he/she should be good. I used to have them done when I taught woodwork at a school (in the days when it was a real subject). I then got them done at a local tool shop - but this closed down. My favoured one is from c.1965 and I don't want to have a go myself as I have neither the skill nor the patience! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated and, I am sure, would be of use to others. Bob

Bob - Do it yourself. You will need a couple of good quality files and an old boot fair saw for practice, by the time you have done it a few times you will be the expert. It will take about ten minutes per saw. Have a look on YouTube and search for Paul Sellers, there is a lot of rubbish on youtube but Paul is a master. Have Fun -- Julian
