Re: What to Consider When Choosing the Best Chainsaw Sharpener?
Personally I don't like these type of sharpeners. I see too many chains damage by operators using these sharpeners (chopsaws). Chains sharpen at the wrong angles, cutters that over heated, tie straps severely cut, cutters that are dub are just a few of the problems I have seen. My customers still prefer my hand sharping over these.
Yes they are quick and easy for the inexperienced. Even they need to dress the grinding wheel for the correct profile yet it still doesn't do as the standard round file for getting the correct hook on the cutters. Therefore I only use one of these for severely rocked chains or remove the hardening to a previous sharpening left behind.
