Default how to fine carbide blade sharpeners?

Well after buying 2 carbide saws I just thought to find someone who can sharpen the blades. I am sure there is a place where I can send it out. Any idea where I can find one kinda local?

no one around here sells the saws so I dont know who to ask.

My local fellow does a nice job on carbide teefh..

I never stayed around to watch him but he says that there are several different angles that need trued on every bit.... He's happy with $20 for fixing my Makita chop saw.

Over the years, I've tried a dozen different sharpening services. By far the best is Forrest Manufacturing, the same company that produces the Forrest saw blades:

The blades sharpened by Forrest last longer than those from any other service I've used.
