An electric chainsaw sharpener is more than a luxury tool. When you file your chains using a hand held file you will not get each tooth filed to the exact same length and angle. Over time your chain will stop cutting properly because the teeth are not exact any longer.
An electric chainsaw sharpener grinds each to the same size, and to the same angle, so your chain last longer, your saw performs better, and you spend less time working and more time enjoying the benefits of owning your own saw.
Things I Love about this Wall Mounted Saw Chain Grinder
Of course there are things to love, and things to not like, about every tool you own. If you are anything like me you will find the following features extremely useful, practical, and important to the operation of this chainsaw grinder.
Wheel Wear Indicator
The best chainsaw sharpener feature is often a simple thing that saves you time or money. The wheel wear indicator on this Oregon chainsaw sharpener is one of the best features, and it is a feature that the majority of automatic chainsaw sharpeners do not have available. You never have to guess whether it is time to replace the grinding wheel on this device. It tells you when to replace the wheel.
The Built-In Light
As I said a chainsaw sharpener features are often the simple things. The majority of electric chainsaw sharpeners do not have a built in light to help you see the chain tooth, or the positioning of the chain tooth in the device. A built-in light helps you to get your chain positioned perfectly, and to me it is an added safety feature.
This electric chainsaw sharpener comes with an accessory package that includes three grinding wheels, the quick check guide for setting the proper angles, and a dressing brick. The accessories help you to achieve professional results with your new tool and I for one love all of the added extras that come with this unit.
