    Chainsaw sharpener

    I need to buy a chainsaw sharpener which is easy to use and should be more consistent. I read a post Which is the best Electric Chainsaw Sharpener? (2018 Reviews) where i found two types of chainsaw sharpener oregon 511 and timber tuff cs bwm. Please suggest the best one out of these.

    Different direction

    Not to run you off track but I've used a Granberg sharpener for years. You don't have to take the chain off the saw and it does a very nice job. It will also run off a battery so you can use it away from the shop.

    The downside is that it only runs on 12v but I use a converter at home.

    I can come close to factory sharpness with it. Probably not as good as a new chain, but very close.

    I have the Timber Tuff and use it with CBN sharpening discs. Takes no time at all to get your chain back sharp and usable. It's a bit of overkill unless you're sharpening chains a bunch of chains on a regular basis.

    Well, not to derail your plan or anything, and this isnt exactly what you asked for, but I was going to go the electric route a while back, but then found the Stihl 2 in 1 Easy File/Pferd CS-X Chain Sharp file.
    I cant imagine anything faster after using it.
    Takes me about 2-3 minutes to go over a 20" chain, and I can do it in the field, which is very handy, and way cheaper than just about any corded sharpener.

    I used a Dremel tool until it burn up this year. I got the Pfred 2 in 1 system for Christmas, but have not tried it yet so I can't say how well it works.

    Years ago I took a couple of chains to chainsaw shop and paid to have them sharpened. They ground over 1/2 the cutter off. I complained and was told me they have to grind until all cutters are the same. At that rate I would only get two sharpenings out of chain. I never went back. IIRC they charged about 1/4-1/3 the price of new high quality chain.

    Lots of us have the 2-in-1 handheld sharpeners and are very happy. If you're not fully committed to electric, check out some of the comments here:

    Chainsaw sharpener

    My full time job is cutting metal (own a machine shop), my part time job is cutting timber, and my hobby is hunting (cutting meat).. Everyday, Iím cutting something. This doesnít necessarily make me an expert but I do know how to sharpen most things.

    This is what I consider to be the best thing available for homeowners and firewood cutters looking to sharpen a chainsaw chain. I use one for maintaining my chains on my smaller saws.
    (My falling saws have square ground chains, so this wonít work for them). The 2 in 1 addresses one thing that a lot of people miss which is the depth gage. If you canít get a sharp chain with this thing you might not be a good candidate for running a saw.

    Fairly certain they make/brand the sharpener for Stihl too!

    Dremel tool attachment here. It takes an hour or so to get it set up correctly at first, but once you have dialed in it does a really nice job.
