    If you're not careful the tendons will get stuck in the cog and need to be cleaned out

    I have an antique 12vdc chain saw sharpener. A 5/32 round stone and a guide. Clip on battery post and in 2-3 minutes it's sharp. Does take practice.

    That gadget looks like a good way to ruin a chain.

    I have a light duty Stihl 171, and the replacement chain is only fifteen bucks, I just buy a new one and throw the old one away, my time is worth at least that much!
