This is rather long. But I do feel it is well worth the read.

Just as some of the others, I found the instructions leaving me wondering. Also, the pictures of the various examples in the directions are very small. You will need a magnifying glass to see those pictures.

But once you get the hang of using this device, it is a breeze.

Here are a few tips:

(1) there is a second component of this machine that has numbers on a dial. These numbers represent various angles to sharpen your chain.

The specific angle you set this to will be found in the literature that comes with your chain. For example, I have a Poulan Chain Saw. I use Oregon, S56 chains. The literature that comes with it tells me the angle for sharpening the teeth is 30 degrees. So, that is the number I rotate this component to and set it.

(2) you will have to sharpen each tooth in the chain. This machine does not automatically pull the chain through and sharpen each one. If some of you were thinking the sharpening was automatic welcome to the club. I thought so also. No question, this is quite tedious work. But when you have finished you will have a very sharp chain that cuts just as if it were new.

So, after sharpening one tooth, you will have to manually pull the chain to enable the next tooth to be in position to be sharpened. In moving from one tooth to the next, you will notice the next tooth is
on the other side of the chain, across from the previous one. So, in order to sharpen the next tooth, you will have to rotate the wheel in the other direction to the same corresponding angle number on the wheel in order for the grinder to be in proper position to sharpen that tooth.

I am an older lady that likes to work in the woods with a chainsaw, and have always dreading hitting a rock or dirt, dulling my saw. When my husband was alive, it wasn't a problem, as he could sharpen it for me, but I have tried to sharpen my own in the past, but never could do it right. I just purchased this sharpener, and sharpened my chain for the first time today. It took me awhile, but after getting the "hang of it", it was absolutely wonderful. It took very little time and does a wonderful job. This will save me time, money and frustration to say the least. I couldn't be happier with a product.

I received my Buffalo tools chainsaw sharpener last week and all ready have sharpened half a dozen saw chains. I even sharpened two that I had discarded. Set up to me was easy and simple even though I had never used one before. Not that I am so smart, quite to the contrary. It is just that simple. I had read all the reviews for the product and these were the most helpful. I did glance at the owners manual and found it to be next to useless. Most of the reviews were more helpful than the owners manual. Anyone who knows the basics of chainsaw sharpening can set this up in a breeze. Just put the two pieces together and bolt the sharpener to your bench or whatever flat surface you are going to use. I use two wood clamps to tie it down to the bench and it worked well. Adjust the setting so that the grinder just touches the tooth, press down and move on the next tooth. You have to do every other tooth then come back readjust your settings and get the opposite side. On all my chains two teeth are back to back on the same side. I use this as a starting point so when I come around to the two teeth I know this is where I started. It is a good idea to wear gloves because he teeth are very sharp when you are done. When I was done I just loosened the clamps and put the whole thing away leaving my bench clear for the next project.

When I tried my chainsaw on my woodpile it cut like a brand new chain.

Wow! This machine does a great job! Considering how little I had to invest in this sharpener, it has saved me a ton to time and money. No more dropping off chains at the shop for sharpening. Now I can charge my buddies! Very satisfied.

I bought this because we have three different chain saws in the family and one has an odd, 13/64 round file requirement. One of the advantages of this sharpener is that it will sharpen any chain. This is a simple, clever device that works.

In the past I've used a Dremel chain saw sharpening attachment (Amazon) with round diamond chainsaw sharpening burrs (Amazon). It is faster, portable, removes less material and does not require removing the chain from the saw. After using this Buffalo ECSS, the Dremel system is still my first choice. Diamond burrs are good for three chain sharpenings, sometimes four. The Dremel system takes maybe 5 minutes, the Buffalo ECSS takes me about 40 minutes for a 20" bar chain.

As others have stated, the instructions are obscure but it's also intuitive and you'll figure it out. It does need to be mounted over the edge of something and there's a slight edge on the bottom so you know clearly where it goes. There aren't many ways to mount it, there are two 3/8" holes near the back for a 5/16" screw or bolt. I put a couple of brass threaded inserts in my work bench and use 5/16" hex head bolts with a flat and rubber washers.

All the chains I've used have a round cutting profile, sharpened with a round file or similar. This Buffalo ECSS sharpener creates a flat plane. If there's any difference in wood cutting, it isn't obvious. The design weakness of the Buffalo ECSS is the flexibility (slop) in the chain stop. The chain stop is easy to move 1/16th inch, more if you put any pressure on it.
