What to Consider When Choosing the Best Chainsaw Sharpener?

I am just digging around for finding the best chainsaw sharpener and for that I have found so many review guides over the internet but won't be able to find the factors that need to be considered before going to buy it. At some extent, I am able to get a detailed review here:   and are thinking of buying Oregon 410-120 after reading out their review. Should I buy it or there are any other products available which fulfill all the required factors?

    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.

    X2  The chain will cut better and last a lot longer properly hand file, you can buy a lot of files for the price of that grinder. I like the Husqqvarna roller guide for accuracy, very few can properly sharpen freehand consistently although many claim to.

    You have to focus on some points before taking any decision and also read some blogs before going for it. one I was read for myself https://topreviewedten.com/best-electric-chainsaw-sharpener/ you can take help from this or any other blog you found useful, and select according to your need like Choose the amount you are happy to spend on it
    Cutting tools are a very personal kind of hardware, also exceptionally hazardous.
    So it should be something you can utilizing happily, can begin effectively and will do what you need it for.
    Genius grade gear is costly yet I without a doubt could never mess with whatever else.

    yes agree with some of your factors which you mention also, there are some more things which we need to have a look while choosing chainsaw just like the type of sharpness you need for an example handled, electric or bar mounted also the chainsaw gauge and the file size of sharpeners it varies in various sizes 0.404-inch (5.5 mm) 3/8-inch (5.2 mm) 0.325-inch (4.8 mm) ¼-inch (4 mm)  basically while searching for some information got this which may be useful in some cases  so its basically depend on your requirements and uses. also, lemme know your thoughts as well.
