I was wondering if those cheap 240 volt bench top chainsaw sharpeners are any good?,do they grind at the correct angle or are
they just a waste of money?

Hi Guys,my opinion and combined with what i been told is its a waste of money as it burns the steel unless you use cooling fluid etc..so i bought a hand one fully portable, looks kinda like a hacksaw and works great..
my 2 cents worth,Toroman

Hey gmax, I see that it is made in Italy.....The italians really make some good tools, and doin it by hand you can really see what you're doin and file just the amount needed AND keep the correct angle....Good stuff!! wink
