Anything to this Sharpening Device

Looks interesting but may be a tinker toy. Anybody used it?

looks like a copy of the timberline I have not used what I've been curious of but the original timberline is rather pricey for what it does.

Why wouldn't it work?....anything to help you sharpen your saw seems like a good thing.

Dad has used the Granberg File-n-joint jig for 40 years.
It works great, you can get a very sharp chain consistently.
Without much skill.
I started sharpening our saws on it as a kid.
He gave me one when I got a wood stove, but by then I was hand sharpening.
It is fidgety and cumbersome to someone who is comfortable free handing.


My neighbor bought a Timberline, and showed me how it works.
It too seemed fidgety, maybe a little less so. The rotary files are expensive and don't last very long.(2 chains I think) The whole unit was pricey. It is nice and compact, something easily carried with you.


I'd suggest the File-n-joint. It's $50ish, uses normal files.
The thing I like best is the combination of forced perfection on every angle,
while (if you pay attention) you are learning the filing motion and you learn what your teeth should look like.

If you are a 10 minute at a time, 5 times a year saw operator, the jig is all you need.
If you cut more, after using the jig awhile, try freehanding.
You will not achieve perfection. (Ever)
But you may be surprised with the result.
Use the jig every once in awhile to keep things from getting out of hand,
before too long the jig will be gathering dust.



Hints
Semi Chisel chain is more forgiving of bad sharpening, a bit more forgiving if
you cut dirty wood. (Dirt still dulls it)

Don't forget the rakers.

Flip the bar, clean the track and oil holes.

Check the corners of the bar for burrs, remove with a flat file.
(I like to just barely break the corners, it helps prevent burrs)

I always use a dremel and the little stones
they sell in the 2 pack for the purpose.
Easy enough to freehand it if you just follow
the proper angle

Used the files before I had a dremel
Same thing- follow the angle

This! Sharpening a chainsaw blade ain't rocket science. Do a touch up more frequently and it's not a job that takes more than a few minutes.

There are only a few reviews on Amazon and they aren't that great. They have Chinese clones with better reviews than the original.

The way it is advertise seems scammy and like a tv infomercial, immediately turning me off from purchasing it.
