Reel mower grinding Tulsa, Oklahoma area

Is anybody using a reel mower in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area? If so, where do you get the reel ground/sharpened?

Thanks,
Brad

When I worked on the golf course, we would hook up a big hand drill to the reels and spin them in reverse.
That sharpened them.

Thanks for the reply.

Did you use lapping compound when you spun them in reverse?

I just bought an older mower and the edges of the reel are pretty rounded. I was thinking that it is probably too dull for backlapping. But, that may be my only option.
