The local (Minneapolis area) Hardinge service expert is Jim Granquist
For parts and service questions, contact him directly: 612-710-4389

I had the dovetail way reground by this excellent shop:

James A. Smith Company
7901 Buchanan Street Northeast
Minneapolis, Minnesota 55432
Phone: 763-784-9153

The Master himself reground my parts.
I will have pictures here of the shop and grinding machine soon.

UPDATE: Someone recently told me that Mr. Smith doesn't like to regrind used Hardinge beds. It may be that he simply doesn't want to offer the service to people with unreasonable expectations or it may be that he doesn't make a profit on the venture. Be sure to call first and be very clear about what you expect.

There are still active Hardinge rebuilders who sometimes have parts for sale. I recently discovered:
