Well I used to have a good old-fashioned saw doctor next to my local Sainsbury's. Just down the road in Beeston and very convenient. But since their demise I have had to trek out to Long Eaton. Long Eaton Saw and Tool Company are situated just behind Focus DIY (or is it Wickes now?). They are geared up with all the latest CNC kit. I've only used them a couple of times, but very happy with the results so far. Indeed, my router bits looked better than they did when they were new!
That reminds me, I have a blade to collect from them.
Neil and Steve,
Thanks to you both for your help, I'll give them both a call, by coincidence i was talking to a guy today who mentioned Hopkinsons and said that they will get them sharpened and he thinks they send them to a place in Long Eaton, probably the same place Steve mentioned (it is almost like a detective novel)
thanks again for your help!
