Dear All,

having called Axminster Technical as a wild stab in the dark, and asked if they knew of a saw doctor, the chap on the end of the blower suggested
DAVENPORT SAWS.

(yours truly dug up the following details on the Information SuperHighway:
Oxford Rd
Pen Mill Trading Estate
Yeovil
Somerset
BA21 5HR
Tel: (01935) 425311
Fax: (01935) 432816)


Scarcely controlling my glee, I rang said company.

And yes, they do sharpen traditional saws, and..wait for it... steady..BY HAND, because machines "often aren't reliable". :lol: :D :lol:

The price: £3.90 +vat for a sharpen, another £1 for a shampoo and set.


Well, now, how about that? Of course, now I just have to summon the courage to test them out on the Disston.

This calls for a cigar...

Yeovil really must be the centre ot the universe !
Davenport Saws, Screwfix headquaters and shop, and just down the road Yandles and Axminster. And of course the famous Yeovil Town FC ! :D

By jove! :D Well done, Jeremy. I look forward to hearing about the results. And to think I was just in Yeovil last month too. :( Fascinating toolshop in the town, btw, totally packed floor to ceiling.

Cheers, Alf

Just a word of caution, from a song by a West Country duet (show of hands):

"Don't tempt fate, never eat late, and stay away from Yeovil town"

:D
