    Stihl sharpening gadgets worth getting?

    Hi, I had bought an electric sharpener at first and then realised that I needed to change the disk as it was too small for my chains (I didn't know about chain characteristics at first), so I stopped using it and just got a some files and holders to do them by hand which I have some success...

    Frustrated with Stihl Chain!

    Stihl MS291 has me baffled. This is the chain: STIHL 3689 005 0081 Oilomatic 26 RM3 81. I have sharpened countless chainsaws in my life using nothing but a file and I have never had a problem until I purchased this saw. I am doing everything right. I am holding a 3/16 file at a 30 degree angle...

    Correct my sharpening!

    I've been using a Husqvarna roller sharpener, and my chain doesn't look right to me. I feel like I'm cutting too high and not leaving enough "lip" on the front part of the tooth. Is this true, and how can I correct it? Thanks.

    GB & Carlton Round Files...Quality?

    Any experiences with GB or Carlton round files? I don't see much talk about them on the forums. I see that GB are made by the Swiss but that's all I know about either brand. Thanks in advance.

    Oregon Micro-Lite 90PX chain sharpening

    My Stihl MS170 came with a Stihl chain (Stihl Chain Loop PMM3 Picco Micro Mini Comfort 3, Stihl Part No. 3610 003 0056). This chain used a 4.0mm (5/32") file for sharpening. I've been replacing it since with the Oregon 90PX chain (cheaper, also good quality). This chain, according to the...

    The Sharpened Chain (maybe)

    Just wanting to get some feedback on this chain, does it look sharp? are the chips chunky enough? The cutters have all been measured and filed to the same length, the rakers were filed down using a Husky file guide. Anyone know what type of chain this is, and what chain would you fellas replace...

    Just what the title says ... I'm looking at a chain sharpener that is not a bench grinder style and I have seen a lot about these two brands. Specifically I'm looking at the Timberline vs. Granberg Precision Grinder (G1012XT). I'm just looking for feedback as I am only used to the bench grinder...

    Sharpening Chainsaw Chains

    Hey guys I have seen similar topics posted elsewhere, but for the sake of being spot on and getting tips I am creating my own post. I recently bought a really nice Oregon 620-120 Grinder with the tripod stand. Thus far all it has accomplished is looking pretty in my basement. I regret this...
