Anybody out there have one of these Oregon powersharp sharpeners? Seems to be the way to go if it works. It uses a different chain, just wondering how it cuts?

They have a video on there website that I posted above, opinions?

Take it from a former faller,

If you can't afford to buy a $600 pro grinder, buy a $25-40 file-n-joint rack.

It clamps onto the bar and you can file both angles to the tooth thats needed to make it cut smooth.

Oregon makes one but I liked the file-n-joint system better. Sthil make one but I think its about $150. Well made though.

as faller said is way to go for novice
would have them redone by someome that does it all time. you get a couple teeth wrong and saw starts jumping you may get to cut something you didnt want cut

I have always used a Oregon file-n-joint sharpener. It takes some time and patience but I always end up with a chain that cuts like a new one.

I think the other brand is Grandburg, Its a little smaller then the Oregon unit, thats the one I used the most until I purchased a Silvey grinder.

The Grandburg will handle both a round file or a chisel file, which only log cutter's worried about, we usually ran chisel style chain.

I've got the files and guides, even got the electric chainsaw sharpener from Harbor Freight. I was interested in this new one from Oregon that says you can sharpen a chain on the saw in 3 seconds out in the field.

It uses a different chain than a normal saw - just wondering how it cuts.

I have the AHarbor freight tool, works fine. Not as good as the one I used in the shop but adedquate for personal use.

Dremel has a system for their tool that is good too, consists of a guide that mounts on the grinder and appropriate stone for the chain. Works great.
