Timberline Chainsaw Sharpener
with 3/16″ Carbide Cutter Review
The Timberline Chainsaw Sharpener is a newly patented tool that takes precision and accuracy to a new level. The chain remains on the saw and the tool clamps on the bar and allows the chain to be pulled through as each tooth is sharpened.A high-grade tungsten carbide cutter is hand turned with a handle.
Only a small amount of material is removed from each tooth resulting in much longer chain life. Carbide guides are fixed at a universal angle of 30 degree while 25 and 35-degree guides are offered separately. The Timberline 7/32" is the same as the Timberline 3/16" except that it is a little less accurate.
It is still made from a machined-finished aluminum, which makes it solid, durable, and long lasting. Again, this model works with a universal blade angle of 30-degree but guides of 25 - 35 degrees can be purchased.
The ability to sharpen individual tooth to the same length and angle is still present and the overall result should be exactly the same as the Timberline chainsaw sharpener model reviewed above - except that it shaves off the blade a little deeper with less accuracy.
The bottom line is, it provides a quicker sharpening than the Timberline 3/16" with less versatility in terms of sharpening result.
