What is a Saw Doctor? Cutting Edge Saws: What is a Saw Doctor?

A Saw Doctor sharpens and repairs saw blades and cutting tools. To become a qualified Saw Doctor you must complete a 4 year apprenticeship course. Graeme Wardrop from Cutting Edge Saws is one of the only qualified Saw Doctors in Sydney, Australia.  In 1987 he was awarded Apprentice of the Year for Saw Doctoring and also given an award for Outstanding Achievement above all apprentices in NSW.  In 1993 he gained a Diploma of Technical Teaching and taught the Saw Doctoring course for 6 years at NSW TAFE before starting his own saw sharpening business, that is now Cutting Edge Saws.
