Never seen this before, why didn't I think of that.. damn. Someone will be collecting royalties for the rest of their life!
I'm not a tree surgeon, only use a little Stihl for firewood at home but just spotted this, I thought I'd post it, maybe been posted before but looks like a nifty idea.
its a great idea but it doesnt cover all my chainsaws and one guy mentioned it cant repair individual damaged teeth, but overall sounds impressive for a person that doents use a chainsaw that much and isnt competent in sharpening the saw.
tried it and thought it was great, but it runs down rapidly. Also produces saw dustr rather than chips and my service agent told me it wasnt doing the machine any good!
Quite expensive for what they are. Sharpening a regular chain is very easy and only takes a few minutes.
Handy tool but was there any need to watch the guy getting hitched up, tidying his lines and climbing to all of 2ft off the ground to demonstrate it! made me laugh
Our teams prefer to set the saw in the vice and work the chain round a tooth at a time with the file.
Its a part of a wider maintenance and inspection regime that covers all the kit
I clamp the saw in a vice and tighten the chain a bit to hold it firm and do a tooth at a time, sometimes hammer a clamp into wood if desperate out and about...every now and then I have all the chains in the vice with a couple of bits of angle iron to clamp them off the bar that gets all the angles bang on.
