Customer Reviews

Every chain saw owner needs one of these.
MO Buyer
In contrast, the Oregon clamps tend to hang up on the cutters when I advance the chain.
George N. Lawrence
This works so nicely now and I am very happy with it.

(Helpful? Not? Please vote, so I know someone is reading these :^) I realize this isn't for everyone. I cut 5-10 cords of big wood each year. For most people, a hand file and/or just keeping two or three chains will more than suffice. If, however, you cut more than a couple limbs and saplings per year, you're already familiar with the chain sharpening gambit. The saw shops put the grinding wheel edge on your chain, and it cuts very well, and then it dulls. If you then try to touch up the teeth in the field, you realize the round files don't work with the straight gullet the saw shop's machine put on there. Then you start filing ... and filing ... Lots of folks keep 2 or 3 chains sharpened, and just swap chains when one dulls. Usually, after three chains, you're through cutting anyway (although this is often not the case for me). When done, you'd take them all to the shop at the same time, and you're ready for next time. This is neither practical nor thrifty, thus enter the Oregon Professional series filing guide. You can set filing angles on two planes, ensure equal tooth length, equal gullet depth and equal raker height. That's all you need for a heckuva sharp chain. This is a knockoff (and superior to, IMHO) the old Granberg 104A File Guide (Sears also labeled them). Both are fine, the new Oregon has a second clamp that holds the chain in place for you. The Granberg lacks this. It saves your fingertips a lot of abuse. The new Granberg 106B looks like it has the same sort of clamp, but I can't vouch for it yet. The old Granberg I have gives me fits with the slide bushing sometimes, though it usually works *really* well too. No chain clamp makes it less stable though, thus my filing angles are less consistent.

I would, since it's free, call into Oregon and get their .

I will pick up from the fine review by "Master of None" who states he is familiar only with an old Granberg model and did not have the current Granberg 106B.

I do have the new Granberg 106B Granberg Bar-Mount Chain Saw Sharpener, Model# G-106B and have found it to be excellent. Before I bought the Granberg 106B I used the Oregon 23736A for about 80 filings and I have now done about 100 filings with the Granberg 106B, so I am pretty familiar with both jigs.

The quick report is that I agree with other reviewers that the Oregon jig is flimsy. I will add that it is also jerky, slow, and strange. I find the Granberg 106B to be rigidly built, streamlined for speed, and with an excellent height gauge that I use to set the file height exactly. Both jigs have insufficient documentation.

As I write this review, I can see both jigs, but you can see almost all of the important details in the Amazon pictures. Both jigs have the same 8" file, so you can judge the different scales of the photographs.

The Granberg is much more rigid because it is very compact and has all-metal construction with solid, thick walls. I think you can see from the pictures that the Oregon is quite a bit taller, which naturally makes it more limber, and the frame distorts in normal use. The Granberg has fully solid sidewalls with no light-weighting. On the Oregon picture, you can see three panels of light-weighting that make this tall frame even more flimsy. The Granberg frame holds its shape when you tighten the body screw.

excellent product! I have been using my original model for 5 yrs now and have always had the complant that it is a little flimsy when filing and the professional model is awesome. no flex at all. much better than lightweight model. take it from a landscaper. well worth it if you are wanting to sharpen your own chains. instructions are fairly easy to follow even for a beginner. oregon has an excellent website also that helps. If you take your time and learn how to use this tool properly you will be pleased with the cut!

Works very well, especially useful for setting depth on cutters.I had fun
using it, practiced on an old chain. If you are in a hurry just buy a
new chain; if not, this looks like the best way to keep chain sharp
at home.

I had purchased a Granberg Bar-Mount Chain Saw Sharpener, Model# G-106B that did not work smoothly and broke when tightening up the screw to hold the file in place. Cheap pot metal. Northern Tool promptly sent a refund for the whole amount including shipping, so kudos to them for that.

I then ordered the Oregon 23736A Professional Chain Saw Bar-Mount Filing Guide. Now this is an excellent unit!! I did have to do a few minor things to make it work well however. I ground the set screw that clamps the unit to the bar so that it has a round ball shape on the end of it. Now it does not try to move around as you tighten it.

After having done that, it still tried to slip on the bar when the set screw was tightened. To fix that I also applied two ¼" x 1" pieces of adhesive backed non-skid material to the 2 contact spots of the same size on the opposite side of the sharpener. I imagine you could glue some medium/coarse sand paper on those 2 places for the same effect. Now it does not take much pressure for the set screw to hold the unit firmly in place on the chain saw bar while using it.

One other issue I had is that I could not get the angle indicators to line up when I turned it from one side to the other. Turns out the handle had come positioned on the wrong side of the unit as shipped. If you have never used one of these before, that would be very confusing if you assumed they were supposed to be positioned where there were from the factory.

I then put some synthetic motor oil on the units round bar that slides and on the pad in the middle under the bar. Smooth!!
