Default Suggestions on where to get circle shear blades sharpened

Hello,
Just picked up a Niagra circle shear. It is in great condition and is complete with all its guides but the shear blades could use a "touch up" resharpening. Anyone have any suggestions or recommendations of who you use to sharpen these types of blades.

Thanks,
MILO

I would suggest a to see a local machine shop where they have a lathe . I had the same problem and some suggested that to me, and it was magic they were able sharpen them.

Warden,
Thank you for the suggestion. I have a metal lathe but assumed that the blades were hardened and therefore needed to be ground rather than machined.
