I will second that Dan. I have used this service for the school and I
recommend ACT. Many know this as the old Leggitt Saw and Tool. They
have taken on new partners and purchased the latest sharpening
equipment and they do an exceptionally good job.

I hope that you get some good results from this thread, Keith - 'cause
I've had terrible luck with sharpening services. Had a couple of nice
Leuco CC blades that had the hooked configuration to the tooth and one
guy sharpened the hook clean away.
I've taken to keeping the blades real clean and tuning them up with
those little DMT diamond abrasiv files. Haven't sent a blade out in
about four years.
Of course, using this method, you may wind up with a pile of saw
blades that looks like:

How do you know when something needs sharpening? Duh! When it won't cut

I take my sawblades to Randy Gittinger in Melmore, Ohio.
