This is a great sharpener for anyone that does a fair amount of firewood cutting. Timberline Sharpener It's a little pricey, but it gives great results. Follow the instructions on seating a new chain and the subsequent sharpening's are a breeze. Read some of the reviews online, lots of folks are saying good things about it. I've been real impressed with mine.

I do a fair amount of cutting, my latest favorite sharpener that I've used for a few years now is the dremel "Chain Sharp". It works well and is quite fast. The main issues to me are that you go through stones a bit, and you can get diamond sharpeners for them now which seem to last forever but take 2-3 times longer to sharpen than the stones do.

Anyway, I am always in the market for something better so 1) how long does it take to sharpen a tooth on average? and 2) how much are cutters to replace, and how many sharpenings does a cutter usually last?

I use the timberline also. Absolutely nothing works as well to consistently correctly sharpen a chain IMO.


If you have that much to fight for, then you should be fighting. The sentiment that modern day ordinary Canadians do not need firearms for protection is pleasant but unrealistic. To discourage responsible deserving Canadians from possessing firearms for lawful self-defence and other legitimate purposes is to risk sacrificing them at the altar of political correctness."

I have a Maxx,,I have about 50 chains so every couple of years the whole shebang gets sharpened and good to go. One thing that make it easier for me is to sharpen all one side at a time and then after I flop it over use a claliper to even up every chain,,only takes a minute in production mode,my only problem is boredom!


I tend to use more than enough gun
