i have used them many times for regrinding. the turn around time is usually less than a week and they have done a good job on the blades for me.

Not to bash a good turn around time, which was really good, but there was way too little lip. I have sent in blades for sharpening that had slightly more than what I got back from them. Sharp, yes, lip, no. That blade lasted me about 3 weeks even trying to baby some more time out of it to justify sharpening expense. Despite the 6 week turn-around from Van Dykes, they have a superior sharpening, tho I have never tried any of the other places out there for their services which I hear are good also.
