I need to get a new wheel really bad. Mine is very worn. I think it’s making the angles kinda funny since it’s odd shaped now. But it does cut pretty dang good. I’m getting 3/4 cord without dulling them bad. I’d be hard pressed to get a full cord from a new chain without damaging the edge.Might consider getting your tooth grind in deeper to the gullet and back a little under the cutting edge. I've never cut on mesquite, but I bet your cutters would do much better if filed with a little angle instead of straight up and down.
STIHL 2 in 1 is a great tool for the $$$ !I need to get a new wheel really bad. Mine is very worn. I think it’s making the angles kinda funny since it’s odd shaped now.

I need to learn to hand file kinda sounds like, but I really don’t have time in the field to do that. I just carry 2 saws and 6 chains or more. I’ll work the chains over one evening after the kids go to bed and be ready to roll next weekend. But a 25’ roll and replace the worst of them every now and then. I try to keep some that are really good mixed in with the half dead ones.
My wife does graphic design. She used to do it a bunch before kids, now just enough to keep the equipment. I text her a pic of a nice 036 and told her to copy the font. And wrote out what I wanted it to say where.Boy that is some nice graphics how did she do that? Looks very professional great work !
She does a good job. She had some trouble with copywright stuff that pretty well shut her online business down. John Deere is ruthless if you so much as hand draw a green tractor they want you shut down. I should have hired a lawyer. She had a business getting close to making full time job money and they beat her down to where she just takes orders and isn’t putting all her designs out for purchase for fear of who she makes mad next. She’s good enough she has trouble getting her screens printed for shirts because the screen printer is scared they are stolen graphics sometimes.She needs to start making replacement decals for stuff. Riding Tractors, Chainsaws, Off road bikes or 4-wheelers ect. I had a fella make me decals for my Partner I own it took many many weeks and cost a small fortune. I bet she would be great at it.
Pm me if you need anything she can make whatever by request. I think she charges like $25 on Etsy for something like what’s on my chainsaw that she has to design. She has lots of colors and can do overlays and stuff.I have no doubt. Well tell her I love her deeply and want to have her babies.....
I checked the angle on my sharpener and it’s on 40*. I know it should be 50, I honestly have just ran it like the guy I bought it from 15 years ago had it set.
