If they ask you to mail a check/money order or pay with PayPal using the Friends and Family option, that is a RED FLAG. Your purchase will not be protected. Only pay with credit card or PayPal using the goods and services options. Do not fall for the excuse that they don't want to pay the PayPal fees. They need to account for that in their sales price.
  • To all USERS that think they need to police the site. New users that come to sell items are not always selling stolen merchandise. No vigilante or lynch mob mentality is permitted. You will be given infraction points if you accuse someone of selling stolen merchandise without hard evidence. You must have the stolen item report with a serial number and/or pictures that match the for sale item to make such accusations. Alert the moderators with your evidence and they will take care of any transgressions. If you do not you will be given enough points for a 3 day time out.
  • Please be aware that we have recently gotten a wave of users that, when researched, are found to be from Nigeria. They are trying to sell products and asking to be paid through Zelle or Venmo leaving users with no recourse if they don't ship the product. If you suspect this activity please contact admin and we will research their information to verify their location.

My local dealer bought one decades ago. Being a machine builder I set it up for him.
It restores bars, closes up the worn grooves. Squares the bars. Great machine to have.

I’m not sure I’d love to have one. I use a 30” x 1” harbor freight belt sander to resquare bars. But have no way to close a wornout groove in the bar.

Here’s the bar shop.

I can square the bar rails parallel on the hf sander. The chamfer the sharp corners with a file inside or use the sander for the outside edge too.

It wouldn’t be hard to make one except for the hammer bar closer.

The 30” belt sander does the bar rails. You need to square the sanding belt table to the belt at a perfect 90 degrees. Once that’s set perfect you can clean up, make the bar rails even and square.

I use a Sander also but wonder about its precision?
I square the adjustable table to the belt at 90 degrees and it’s perfect when sanding the bar. I only sand the bar lightly once the rails are trued parallel that’s it. Then I chamfer both outer edges and chamfer the inner grooved edges with a file.

Ok it’s work in progress . I’m mounting a 4” wide x 14” long x 1/4” table to my 1” x 30” belt sander. Using four 3/8” threaded rods to support the table. I have a base plate to mount the grinder on and to support the adjustable height on the table.
These 1” x 30” belt sanders are $52 at harbor freight. I have this belt sander for 30 years.

I hope to build the bar groover, a saw chain grinder, vise to hold saws while being sharpened, overall a one stop bar maintenance center.
