    Thank you Phil,
    It does look like a Oregon copy cat. Ill let you know how it works if I pick it up.

    I've been using mine off and on for some time now. It took awhile to tune the bugs out to my satisfaction. It's a bit sloppy here and there and not in the same quality league as the Oregon and others. However, I've sharpened about 200 chains with it, from Picco to 404, and it will do it. One of the grind stones went wacko and started vibrating the unit. I had to toss it. Biggest flop might be the vise lock handle that holds the chain tight. It won't stay put on its own as a result of poor cam design. This may have been fixed in later releases.

    Remember, it's a clone and corners had to be cut to get the price down that far. I rate it higher than the HF el cheapo grinder. I am rather amazed that the motor is virtually the same as the Tecomec from Italy, although the power consumption is rated lower.

    Fantastic.
    My current one is a very cheap-o one. And recently the locking mechanism for the chain broke. So this will be an upgrade.
    Thank you
