The Timberline Chainsaw Sharpener is a precision machine designed for chains with a .325-inch pitch. We noted it to be a very well made product, manufactured here in the U.S.A. Weighing at 1.15 pounds and measuring 6 x 4.2 x4 inches, it takes a very little amount of messing around to set it up.

It uses a high-grade tungsten carbide cutter that is turned manually by a handle. The tool works by clamping on the bar and allowing each tooth to be sharpened at a time.

It gets better…

One of the things we liked most about this cutter is that you can see the amount of material you are removing and make any necessary adjustments. This will cause your chain to last longer even with many sharpens.

It’s fitted with carbide guides that are fixed at a 30-degree angle. In case you require 25 and 35-degree guides, you’ll have to buy them separately.

The whole device arrives in a soft case with two zipper pockets.

Features

  • Contains high-grade tungsten carbide cutter
  • Includes carbide guides that are fixed at a 30-degree angle (25 and 35-degree guides sold separately)
  • Sharpens every tooth to the same length and angle
  • Made of durable, high quality, machined aluminum
  • Lightweight design hence portable

During our tests…

We found this machine is simple to use and makes sure every tooth is razor sharp and the exact same length on either side of the bar without heating your saw. It takes a little time, but the effort does pay off in both time and money as compared to using a hand file or taking your chainsaw to the local dealer.

Nevertheless…

The carbide cutters look durable but brittle so do not twist or turn it backward. Also, if the machine moves a bit during use, use a chisel or screwdriver to score the smooth screws since they easily slip. Read Timberline’s instruction manuals to make sure you’re doing the right thing. Otherwise, the results will be wrong and it may even be dangerous.
