Nice. I need to get a better saw-chain sharpener. The little plastic one I have sucks.


I know a lot about a lot of things BUT I still have a lot to learn.
Life is what you make of it. So, why not make a working machine to make it easier.

I get about 3-4 sharpenings out of a standard chain. Mark the start tooth with a red or blue Sharpie so it's easy to find when it comes around again.

sometimes the chains are SO out of whack I can only do the best to straighten it out, Im pretty good at it- but when its totalled..it becomes a "stump chain" or a chain used to cut stump roots,one or two uses in the rocks and dirt and thats it
