I thought i would try the sharpener since i go through alot of chains up here in northern canada trapping beaver through the ice.I do hit alot of rocks under the ice and of course alot of rocks cutting trails.I took the worst chain i had set the degree at 30 and wow it is like using a new chain.When i recieved the product it did look mickey mouse but after using it ,it sure put a smile on my face.
I can go through several chains in one day now and not have to make a trip to the hardware store to get the chains sharpened. The product is as good as advertised and maybe better! I have had it for several months now and sharpend even the worst chains to use on stumps. Very easy to set up and even easier to use. I can't think of anything bad to say. I probably spent $60 - $100 last year on new chains and sharpening (mostly sharpening). Then I tried sharping using files. . .effective but very time intensive. I'm done with a chain now in 2 - 3 mins.
It does work as well as it states and th small light weight size is great for storeage when not in use......this is the first year using, so far so good, it is nice to not have to run somewhere to have saw sharped all the time, money saved already paid for itself !!!! .

I run a small engine repair shop and I work on a lot of chainsaws. I needed to be able to sharpen the chains. Well, the lowest cost quality sharpener I can find is a $200.00 Oregon. I can't afford that right now but I had to have something NOW. So I had no choice but to take a chance on the absolute cheapest sharpener I could find. So I bought the Buffalo Tools sharpener. You can't imagine how shocked I was when I realized it actually works! I've sharpened several chains with it and it works GREAT! First off, DON'T BE AN IDIOT. It's PLASTIC, the threaded parts are PLASTIC, DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN ANYTHING THAT IS PLASTIC!!! Have I stressed that enough? Most of the bad reviews I've seen are from people that over tighten everything and break or strip out the plastic. Take it easy with this thing and you'll be fine. One thing I noticed is the clear plastic guard you have to look through is thick and distorts what you're looking at. Take it off and throw it away. You also have to turn the motor off between each cut. This is no big deal because where you drape your hand over the top of the unit to pull it down your fingers rest right on the on/off buttons and they click on and off very easily. After one chain you'll be doing this automatically. For under $40.00 I couldn't be happier. Some day I'll get me a good Oregon sharpener but until then this will do just fine.
As a frequent chain saw user, I wish I would have purchased this sharpener much earlier in my woodcutting days. This does a great job in sharpening chains and takes little time in doing it. I highly recommend this product!

this was purchased as a gift for a family member who heats his house with a wood stove. As such, he can go through chains pretty quickly, but he loves having this sharpener on hand. He did end up breaking one of the bolts that hold it in place, but he is pretty rough on tools and the like and it didn't have any affect on the overall functionality of this product.
