Things I Love about this Bar Mount Chain Saw Sharpener
Each chainsaw chain sharpener has something about it that makes it stand out in the crowd. To me the following features of this chainsaw sharpener make it one of my favorite tools.
Attaches to the Bar of the Saw
When you are in the woods cutting trees down you do not want to have to stop and change the chain on your saw. Your options are either to change the chain when it gets dull, or sit down on a piece of a log and use a hand file to sharpen your chain. After a few times of using a hand file your chain will not cut properly, but with this Bar Mount Chain Saw Sharpener you will be able to get a precise sharpening without removing the chain from the bar.
Lightweight but All Metal
A lot of chainsaw sharpeners like this one are made out of thick plastic. Needless to say those items do not last very long and have to be frequently replaced. This sharpener is made completely from metal but it is still light and easy to carry with you.
Sharpens the Majority of Chains
If you have several saws then you will love that this chainsaw sharpener will accept the majority of chains and chain pitches. You do not have to have a separate sharpener for each individual chain that you own.
- You can use this on all popular size chains
- Angles can be set at 10 degrees to sharpen a ripping chain
- You do not have to re-position the tool for each tooth of the chain. Once you have it set properly it will sharpen the teeth without your having to stop and set the device again.
- You can sharpen a chain in just a few moments
- All metal construction
- Easy to read dials
- Do not have to remove chain from saw
- Directions are confusing
- I might would have designed this with a second screw to attach it to the bar of the saw
This is not an automatic chainsaw sharpener. This is a manual chainsaw sharpener that you can carry with you and use wherever you are at. You never know when you are in the woods cutting trees down if you might run over a nail someone put in the tree trunk many years ago. Those hidden nails can damage your chain, but if you have this Granberg chainsaw sharpener along with you then you can quickly sharpen the teeth on your chain and get right back to what you were doing.
