I stumbled onto this Timberline round file guide today. Never seen anything like it.  Anyone seen tried or heard about it?

How much? I dont want to even try one, I just thought it was a different idea using the dremel method sort of in sharping = spinning in tooth.

$125+$20 to have all 3 carbide cutters. My dad had one of these years ago (I think the name was different),worked great. I would much rather have that than the round grinder that I have. 8)

So you are saying this thing works that good, that it would file better then a round file one by hand or just one done on a good grinder?

Someone who is good at hand filing is as good as anything IMO. I have a decent oregon grinder and if that works and holds up like what dad had its definetly better than it.

I have issues with getting the wheel set at the right depthand taking too much off which gets the cutter too hot with the grinder.
plus the grinder grinds the wrong way on one side of the chain.
The timberline looks like it pretty much always turns into the cutter and heat should'nt be an issue.

The Dremel is a good way to repair a rocked tooth .Well really teeth because you never get just one it seems .

It's bad enough trying to unrock  an Oregon chain but a danged Stihl chain would take a month of Sundays and a box of files to get-er-done .

I don't think there is any method that will get a chain SHARPER than the dremel style with the right cutter.
If you can get the angles down with a good grinder you can actually polish the tooth with the dremel to a razor edge that you can actually cut hair with.
I have one that I bought MANY years ago and it really does a good job. Have to be careful not to get the tooth hot though.

I tried using a dremel before, I get a chain sharp once before the stone was shot. :(
