Thanks to all who replied.  You have given me a couple of options and I found that Sells Equipment in Woodhaven also does them.

I'll look into the Dremel option but that means I will need to buy one as well.   I have a file with a guide but it just does not seem to do much when I have tried it in the past.

Buy your files in quantity and buy quality like Nicholson.  Bailey Online sells them in 12 packs.  Get a file card and clean them too.

Like I said, I stay away from commercial resharpeners.  They remove way too much tooth when grinding a loop.  They want you to buy a new one (loop) after a few sharpenings so they over grind on purpose.

Bailey's also sells grinding outfits if you want one.  Go into business grinding chains yourself.

My husband always took his chains to a guy on South telegraph. I don't know whether it's a Monroe address or a LaSalle address.  You go south past Alban and pass the two churches on the right and then it's right after the second church, I think there's a chainsaw sign by the road or by his garage, I can't remember.

Is that the brick home with the two big iron wagon wheels hanging out by the road?

That's the only place I can think of that fits your description and the guy that lived there did all kinds of repair work for years.  I don't know what happened to him but the place was sold not too long ago.  I'll look closer but I don't remember seeing any kinds of signs out front lately.

 That is where I meant. Of course my husband's been gone quite a while.

From the sounds of things (on here), maybe I should invest in a professional grade chain grinder.  I already sharpen chipper knives btw.
