I have a bunch of dull chains for my Stihl. The local place has gone up to $7 to sharpen each and you have to leave them for a few days. I didn't. Started thinking about the old Belsaw Sharpening shop that I bought 30 years ago. It had the main machine, a hand saw filer, a reel mower sharpener, band sander, and a chain sharpener. I tried to use the chain sharpener when I got it but it had problems.
Today I was cleaning up a work area and putting things away when I came across the Belsaw Chain Sharpener. I got it out, lubed it up and tried it. It spins but I still haven't got the guide to work right. I went to the Belsaw site but my machine is over 50 years old and is not shown on the site. It has a feature that I like. It only spins at 1550 rpm so, it is less likely to burn the teeth like most machines(and operators) do.
While I was on the Belsaw site I found that they have small engine parts at better prices than I usually can get them. https://shop-foley-b...om/foley/83.cat
I'm going to try YOUTube for help with the sharpener. Good Luck, Rick
