Oregon 410-120 Chain Sharperner
« on: May 16, 2018, 08:09:59 PM »
I'm looking to purchase an Oregon 410-120 chain sharpener to do my chains but when I downloaded the owner's maunal the specs to use the sharpener only list adjustments for Oregon brand chains. I have a variety of chains ( different manufactures). Does anyone have experience using the Oregon brand sharpener with chains other than Oregon ? Thank you for your time and expertise. Zackary.

Might look into a Tecomec, I have both a super jolly and an Oregon 510 both work but the Jolly has better adjustments. To your chain look up each manufacturer specs for the chain or set all your chains up the same, on my square chains I set them all up the same so I know exactly how the chain will react.

All of the chain manufacturers publish sharpening specs for their chain except the Chinese box store stuff and if your using that junk I feel sorry for you. All you have to do is look at the manufacturers web sites. Stihl will use angles that are figured from a different plane than everyone else so the numbers will look odd but it isn't hard to figure out if you retained a bit of your high school geometry lessons.

As an aside when I bought my grinder I played with sharpening angles a good bit and cut a lot of cookies.  Only you can decide if it's worth all the effort to continually screw with the angles for your own cutting but for me it is not and the only thing I change from chain to chain is having the correct stone in it and the top plate angle. Keeping the stone properly profiled is 20 times more important than a few degrees in angle in the machine settings. If the stone isnt correctly profiled the only angle that is going to be correct is the top plate.

I have this chain sharpener and it works very well!

I've sharpened chains from Husky, Oregon, Stihl, and a couple of knockoff brands with great success. The key is to go to those manufactures sites and get their specifications or look on their packaging for detailed information.

Or simply grind to your own specs depending on the task at hand...
