I have a low-end gent’s saw that I have used for some dovetails, with reasonable success. I have some more plans to do dovetails in some hard maple soon.
From experience, and many other sources, I know that there is no substitute for a good sharp tool. I would like to get the gent’s saw sharpened, and I am also exploring options for a better dovetail saw (western? japanese? don’t know yet). Before I invest in a new saw, I would like to know of a good source for sharpening of hand saws. I live in the foothills west of Denver, but get around the area enough that the metro area is reasonable.
Who has recommendations?
I know I could do the sharpening myself, but I don’t get much time to work on projects so at this point I would rather have someone else sharpen saws so I can work with wood to build some projects.
Thanks in advance for your ideas.
