New grinder info
« on: October 28, 2014, 03:16:09 pm »
looking for better than home owner quality round file style grinder.
A 510 silvey would be the cats meow if I could find a decent priced used one, but no such luck so far.

So what do you guys recommend for mainly 3/8ths chain?

I have a early 511A that I'm very pleased with. It had a worn out vice when I got it. I installed a new Tecomec vice and as far as I'm concerned it is a like brand new grinder.

The Chinese Timber Tuff, Northern Tool, & Ruff Neck grinders are copies of a 511A. They are pretty good for the home owner. At times you can find one of these on sale.

Foley 308 is very good grinder.  Can be found pretty reasonable $150 or so.

I really like the stihl USG. Can be found used in the same range. 150-200.  New cost is up there with silvey though.

Ebay is where I got my 308 w/book and foot pedal $168 del.  New CBN wheel $40.00 also Ebay.  I'm patient sometimes  ;D got the wheel after looking for months.   I haven't seen a 308 lately but I haven't been looking.
