    I have asked this question before, but have not purchased as of yet, but am looking at ebay and at northerntools. Any other ideas as to where to buy? Has anyone purchased one lately? What brand and cost? How is the Orgeon as compared to others? How about ease of use? I like simplicty and quick! Please let me know your ideas.Thanks!

    Harbor Freight sell one for about $49.00 (a table model), I have no exsperience with it though to report on. There are also 12 volt models for about $10.00 that hook to your battery, they are about as big as a flashlight.

    I have the 12 volt model-----it works great for me. I use my saw a fair amount because I have a portable sawmill, and it also allows me to sharpen my blade any where there is a 12 volt battery(vehicle, sawmill, 4 wheeler etc). The table models I have see---------------You have to remove the blade to sharpen, but they are more accurate at keeping the proper tooth angle than the hand model(12 volt), but I have no problem with the 12 volt, just keep extra sharpening stone's in your tool box.

    Bought one fro Harbor Freight, an electric model, and it works great! It has paid for itself due to the amount of wood that I cut...quick, easy, and one can make a little extra $$ sharpening chains for friends and neighbors!

    Are these sharpeners "dummy proof" for those of us who can't file straight (or at an angle when necessary)?
