    I have a load of blades that are blunt, damn worktops! but are in good condition overall.

    Can I sharpen them myself? if so how? or should I get them done at a shop? can someone reccomend somewhere?

    Get it done, will cost £10-20 depending on number of teeth.

    Where are you.

    Not my neck of the woods

    Try local tool shops and hire shops, my local ones don't do it in house but have a weekly service so if you know what day the van comes round you will only be without the blades for 8 days.

    If your only using cheap quality blades it may just be worth replacing them, but if its a decent one you should get about 4-5 sharpenings out of it as they usually have thicker teeth to start with. I assume you are talking TCT blades?

    OK. Circular saw blades. Small Rant. Why can't I find 170mm ones? Not even on E-bay. I lie. Found one in June in Focus and haven't seen one since. Seriously. And that cost 2/3 the price of the (B&D) saw. What's that about?

    B&D still make a 170mm saw so a B+d supplier should have them. And Trend make them.

    Search on Google for 170mm blade.

    they seem to be around £25.

    I'm with JMH on this.
    They are likely to be reground better than when new.
    It was my experience on Milling machines for 30 years that regrinds cut better than new cutters.
