Oregon 410-120 Bench/Wall Mounted Grinder
If you use your chainsaw seasonally or mainly for household projects, this chainsaw sharpener is great and will fit into your workshop without taking up too much space. However, if you are a professional and/or use your chainsaw frequently (and therefore need to sharpen frequently too), the Oregon 510-120 model will better suit your needs.
This model tends to have loose ball bearings in the chain guide, which fall out easily and need to be put back. This requires a little technical knowledge of your machine to ensure it works properly.
This chainsaw sharpener includes three grinding wheels in various sizes to accommodate all chain pitches. There is some assembly required before you can start using this machine, and if you have never used an electric mounted chainsaw sharpener before, this can be quite confusing and time-consuming.
Once they are set up, electric mounted sharpeners consistently sharpen each tooth to the same angle, allowing the chainsaw to cut more efficiently. This is because you simply set the angle once and use that for each tooth. Inconsistent angles can make your chainsaw seem blunt as the teeth are working in opposition to each other.
