Bought this, and it does the job. But you need a dremel ( which you should have anyway)  K


Shimano MF-TZ500 7 Speed Bicycle Bike Freewheel 14- 28 Tooth Index - Screw On UK. Chain saw grinding accessories: 70mm / 50mm. Usage : It can be easily screwed on the electric grinder...

Unless you're going to spend over £250 odd then a file is the best option, especially if you're only doing a chain or two a week. The Stihl 3 in 1 chain files are really good I found. Nice and quick and you don't need that much skill.

Got this. Had it years. Really like it, especially the for long Milling chains with metal damage

Works off any 12v battery. Fast and accurate chain sharpening. Once familiarised very easy to use - clamps to the bar for consistent teeth.

I've had mine forever and really like the convenience of having spare chains to swap over and save a few till I have a sharpening session doing 4 or 5 at once. I do use files to sharpen on the saw while cutting.

Another thumbs up for the Grandberg. Cracking wee sharpener that also takes down the Rakers to a set height and does so very accurately.

As it’s 12v you can take it with you when working away from the workshop.
