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.

I have owned the Granberg sharpener for several years, and have found it to be a difficult, frustrating tool to use despite having much experience with it. The problem with the Granberg sharpener is that it is designed to be infinitely variable so that it can be used in every situation imaginable - which makes it difficult and confusing for the average person to occasionally use. As well, its construction leaves much to be desired - especially the bar that slides back and forth, bending out of angle as it does so, and binding horribly despite greasing it well. Every time I'm finished using the Granberg sharpener, I vow to find a better way to sharpener my saw. It took me years to follow through, but I finally did.
Because the Granberg is so aggrevating, I also made occasional use of professional sharpening services, but found them to be unreliable. Sometimes my blades were sharpened well, but other times they were badly overheated and had huge burs on every tooth. The problem with sharpening services is that although they might have a very expensive, very fine sharpening machine, the results they achieve are only as good as the operator that uses it, and with the high turnover that these services seem to experience, it is easy to imagine how my blades were occasionally ruined.
Because I was finished with the Granberg, and with professional sharpening services, I looked at the many sharpening options available and chose the Timberline because:
1) It is portable, allowing me to take it with me to the work site to sharpen my saw when needed.
2) It is small, therefore not requiring permanent storage or bench space like the electric chop-saw style sharpeners.
3) Its bit turns slowly, which is a superior speed for sharpening. The electric chop-saw sharpeners, and other electric grinding tools, spin so fast that they can easily overheat the cutters, thereby weakening them.
4) It is finely machined and well constructed, meaning that it will last a life time. I've been disappointed by many cheaply constructed tools in recent years, but pay attention when I find something better.
5) It is stunningly simply to use. If you can use an old-style pencil sharpener with a hand crank, you can sharpen a chainsaw blade well.
6) It came ready to use for a standard 30 degree cut, .325 pitch saw blade, and required no adjustments or tweaks to work perfectly (it also supports other angles, and other pitches as well). I spent 10 minutes figuring out how it works, and 15 minutes sharpening my first blade. In the future it should take me only about 10 minutes to sharpen a blade to like-new condition, with each tooth cut at the perfect angle, and of the exact same length.
While the Timberline is somewhat expensive, it is worth quite a bit to me to avoid the aggrevation of the Granberg, and the inconvenience, unpredictably and repeated expense of professional sharpening. After using it, the Timberline seems ultimately worth it because it produced great results, and I actually smiled throughout the sharpening process. This is a great, simple sharpening solution for an average chainsaw user.
