Chainsaw Chain Grinder Wheels
« on: October 03, 2013, 08:28:02 pm »
Anybody ever tried using the Stens chain grinder wheels? I'm still using the OEM pink wheels that came with my Oregon 511A. Thought about trying the Stens ruby wheels to see if how they do.

The Stens ruby wheels in 5-3/4 X 7/8 X 3/16 & 1/8 are discontinued items only available while supples last

I bought some wheels from TSC farm store and they are a rather poor excuse for a chain sharpening wheel, I could turn out a decent chain with them.

The center hole is not well defined

The Diamond wheels are available on Ebay and also direct from Diamond Wheel Inc but the price is the same.

http://www.diamondwheelinc.com/woodcutting/

These are the Chinese wheels that TSC sells for $14.99

Here are the Molmabs from Bailey's. I have some for my Silvey and they are a lot better than the Chinese wheels

Here is the Northern Tools site.

Those $6.99 wheels will be a challenge to use.
