    I would bet any person who has a Saw blade sharpening service can do it. Or how about a knife sharpening service. Most probably they do both anyway. Just my thoughts here.

    Sounds like a good job for anyone who has a surface grinder, any small machine shops nearby?

    Actually a great deal of tool room grinding is performed dry. Use an "I" hardness wheel or softer of 46 or courser grit, don't take off more than a couple thousands in depth per pass and don't cross feed more than .01 per stroke. Coolant would allow deeper-more but heat can be kept out of the tool steel without it.

    Sharpening would reduce the height of the blades, and I'm sure you would want them matched. Is there a provision to shim or adjust them back to the proper protrusion if they are sharpened?

    I would keep looking for a small machine shop, that would be the best solution. If you were to ship it someplace to sharpen, I'd look at using Keith at TurnWright Machine Works, I stumbled across him in youtube (his video list https://www.youtube.com/user/KEF791/videos). He does all sorts of machining work and if you take a few minutes watching his video, you'll get a really good idea what and how he goes about his projects. He works a lot in the small Marine sector, but this would be super easy for him to knock out. I know nothing of him other than what I've learned while binge watching his videos.

    In lieu of that, you could use a 1" x 42" strip sander that can put a razor edge on almost anything.



    There are several re-sellers of the same version, shop around if you're interested in purchasing one they're all the same. One option I would consider is the Grizzly version for $225.

    It would be easy to build a jig and let the belt go to work. I use mine to sharpen everything from wood chisels and lawn mower blades, changing the belt grit to get a finer edge.
