My vitrified stone did just as well as the CBN I replaced it with. Honestly I was expecting more of a difference. That's how little I am taking off at a time.I feel like my big problem is the wheel profile. Imo it's good where it's at right now but also I feel it's not perfect enough. It just doesn't fill the gauge all the way. To get it to fill the gauge all the way seems close to impossible with my skill. If I gotta fight with it that much each time I dress the wheel i will use this grinder as a boat ancher. I don't clean my chains. I ain't going to start. I don't have the space or time for that. And I do notice how much more the wheel burns the tooth with it starts to get black.

You and I seem to be walking the exact same line in our opinions both in this thread and those of years past. But I have to point out one minor point you wrote about the non-progressive gage. You said it took the average tooth height, but in fact it takes the average of the two highest teeth it lands on, which is even worse. I use the raker gage on the roller guide or I have the dedicated husky flat plate progressives. It just makes sense to set the raker height for the tooth it is controlling in the cut.
