Here is my chain sharping setup i won it off ebay for 20.00 buck plus shipping in new condition with instructions and all. It's a oregon brand and i knows it an old one but it does the job and thats all that matters i guess.

I got one of them. i use it if i'm in a hurry and don't have time to sharpen by hand or if i hit a rock or something that dull the snot out of the chain. ( and a FYI my brother will hit anything with a chain and then thinks it's still sharp LOL)

tell me about it. but he just grabs one of my other saws and goes back at it.

And plus he can't sharpen a chain worth a snot so thats what i do.

At home the Timberland sharpener. Works great, in the field, a file and guide + stump vise if needed.

I have one of the Oregon jigs. Want to mount it permanently to an old bar to make a bench mounted deal similar to the Stihl. Have the bar, need to cut it to length, then weld it to some angle so I can clamp it in a vise... Hardest part will be figuring the mounting of the jog to the bar so it doesn't prevent swapping the chain as I want it permanently mounted to the bar as well.

I've had Cale do up many chains for me in the past, he's done all the grinding I've ever needed.

But when I'm out cutting I just used a round file, sometimes with or without a guide....

For work chains I just use the Oregon 511-Whatever grinder at the shop,

In the field I usually bring a couple extra chains and quite cutting when they're dull.

For square ground chains I have a sharpener, his name is Tim, I hand Tim chains and they come back sharp.
