Electric sharpener.?


Recommended Posts

I know we have been over this, but what's best bench mounted electric sharpener. This is for doing 48" chains that have it metal before any gives me the "man up and do it by hand". I do hand file mostly and happy with it, but doing 4 x 48" chains that have all it metal and having to put them on a double ended bar each time is tedious beyond belief.


Killed a went florabest I was given in about 3 chains. Use a dremmel with diamond files but also not actually that quick.


So oregon? Portek? Others? Ta

I have the Lidl Parkside one - but then I don't earn a living through my chainsaws and I just process for my own use.  


Parkside Chain Sharpener - For all standard saw chains with link sizes ¼“ / 0.325“ Convenient and precise sharpening without tensioning

Thanks for replies, not into a super cheap one as reckon it'll die doing a load of 404 chain ( my last cheap one did). Any thoughts @roughhewn ?

A mate has a good Oregon one that he uses for his 404 harvester chains. I used to sharpen my 48" chains on it til I bought the 12v Grandberg one. It was great and very easy to avoid case hardening the chain by just taking a slight kiss off the teeth. If you hit metal and need to take more meat off the teeth then just do so bit by bit. Common sense stuff really.
