If I had a "like" button I would push it for the posting of the museum pictures. But I don't.  I use "WaterFox" the 64bit version of "FireFox".  The "Like/Agree" options show up with other forums. It is a nice feature to have but not essential.

Thanks to the moderators/administrator(s) of this forum for all their work!

No, the Franzen is like any other grinder, and is not as quick and easy as it's selling line says.  Well you can set it up to take out a bunch of damage in one pass, but the cutters will show it, and the wheel needs to be dressed.
     The model in Louisville every now and then would glitch and almost cut a chain in two, or every now and again, the wheel would explode.  I requested
helmets and flack jackets from the owner, he didn't care for my request........

Actually, I don't think he liked me much at all.......

Anyway, in reality, I would make several passes on a rocked out chain, so I was fussing with the thing every few minutes, not like I could just to that and
really work on anything much else like they say.  which is why the owner did not give us labor dollar credit for chain grinding, and the 2 saw techs were
the only ones that had chains, and the saw techs were considered the worst mechanics, so got no bonuses or raises, etc.  The same story at all mower
dealerships that sell saws.

    Anyway, they had a wore out Stihl  grinder out back that I had to use a lot, for the chains that the Franzen couldn't sharpen.  The owner was pissed
that I wanted to bring my Efco grinder in my shop, as I hate Stihl's grinders, he didn't want anyone saying his $20,000 Franzen wasn't the greatest
investment decision that he ever made.

I believe the Stihl Kart engine was 98cc and not the 137cc of the 090
