My 40T 10" Freud is starting to cut a bit wooly and so I think a sharpen is in order.
Any recommendations? Or is the price of postage each way plus the service itself prohibitive these days and I should get a new one?
Or... does anyone do their own (dremel and diamond disk a la Wandel)?

I did a search, but there's not much there!

Personally I would recommend you DO NOT sharpen your TCT blades.
Professional grinding machines will leave the tops and faces of the teeth at the correct angles and heights.
Sharpening by hand will leave the blade in a mess and you will very quickly need to buy a new one.

North London Saw still offer (according to their website) a resharpening service. NLS Tools - UK Manufacturers of Precision Cutting Tools for Wood, Plastics and Non-Ferrous Metals
Having worked in the trade for over 30 years I highly recommended them.
