    I use McKenzie Grinding in Portland,

    Good service and a fair price, in my experience.

    Ask your local machine shop. If they don't sharpen their own tools in-house (likely) they can point you to whoever services theirs.

    I've used both Kish and McKenzie several times and have been very happy with the results, timeliness, and prices.

    Most people I think use Kish, and Mckenzie as already mentioned, Park also has a service for there tools. If you dont already know most of the cutters are built with a general cut to them, you can ask to have them optomized for a particular material, if you only use one material
